7 Ways To Save Your Relationship

Many relationships hit a point of apathy: you hit a level of comfort, security and routine that it becomes tempting to take the amazing person you have for granted. You buy fewer flowers, you take each other out to dinner less, you pine for lives that could have been.

But a lull doesn’t mean a death sentence for your relationship, especially if you follow these seven steps to being a better partner.

1. Work At Your Relationship

“Relationships are work.” Ah, who doesn’t love a cliched adage? This one in particular rings true: like all good things in life, relationships take work.
