Portland Matchmakers | 4 Tips to Nurture a Relationship

dating in portland

Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting apart? Are the two of you at the point of calling it quits? All relationships have their ups and downs, but in the best relationships, partners work together to fix the problems before everything unravels.

We live in a world where everything seems to be disposable.  People think that if a relationship doesn’t work, then they can dump their partner and move on to the next person.  Just because you and partner are in a rut right now, doesn’t mean it is time to throw in the towel and call it quits.

Fixing your relationship and nurturing it is a two way street.  It takes a lot of communication to fix a relationship and to truly breathe life back into it.  In other words, it takes a lot of work. But as Portland matchmakers with nearly 30 years in the business of love, but it is worth it in the end.

Let our Raleigh Hills matchmakers here at Portland Singles Dating Service show you how to nurture your relationship and bring it back to life.

  1. Think About Why You Picked Him

 

Think back to the time when you first started dating him.  How did he make you feel back then?  What made you choose him over the other guys? What did he do to make you swoon? Create a list of all the positive things that made you fall in love with him and give that list to him.

Ask him to do the same thing for you.  Reviewing all the positive qualities you first saw in each other can go a long way for fixing your relationship.  It will give you both solid ground on which you can grow and improve your relationship.

  1. Talk To Each Other

 

Sit down with your boyfriend and have a talk.  Tell him that you just want to have the opportunity to fix the relationship and make things better.  Agree not to get angry with each other and openly discuss what you both feel is wrong in the relationship.  Talk about things that are bothering you and allow each other time to speak.  Figure out what the two of you can do to improve the relationship and it will make things easier.

  1. Do Something Unexpected

 

It’s very common for couples to fall into a routine. Day in and day out, nothing is new, exciting, or different.  Bring some fun back into your relationship. Send him a bouquet of flowers while he is at work. Put on an attractive outfit for date night. Make dinner and surprise him when he gets home.  Take him out to his favorite burger joint.  It doesn’t matter exactly what it is you do for him, just do something that he will never expect.

  1. Let Go of Past Grudges

 

Have a grudge discussion with your boyfriend. Choose one grudge you have been holding on to and discuss it with him.  It can be about anything from the past that still bothers you, such as when you felt he was flirting with the hot waitress or the time he was choosing his friends over your needs.  Explain to him why the incident hurt you.  When you are finished, ask him to share one of his grudges with you. Listen to what he is saying and help him resolve his grudge.
