How To Make A Good Relationship Last
Whaddup everybody! Damn, this week went by quick. The combination of the full moon and the mid-week holiday really put everyone in a funk. But thank god it’s Friday! Hope all you party animals had a fun and safe 4th of July with your friends and family, full of delicious BBQs and amazing fireworks (we trust that nobody blew off an arm or something). Since it’s Friday, we figured we’d leave you all with another special sumthin’ sumthin’. That’s right, another public (but very personal) message from JustKiddingFilms’ pretty lady, Geovanna Antoinette. All you single fellas out there who are dying to get with someone like her, listen carefully and maybe someday you’ll get lucky.
What’s the best relationship advice you can give someone?
Geo: The process of getting into a relationship is always the most exciting in the very beginning; what we call the “honeymoon stage.” The back and forth flirting, the butterflies, spontaneous dates just about anywhere. You normally hate studying, but if you could do it with your crush by your side, you’re the happiest student on Earth. This is the easiest part of the relationship, but unfortunately, these feelings and this stage will eventually go away. Not to say that couples can’t act like they are in the honeymoon stage for their entire relationship, but it does take a lot of maturity and a lot of work for that to be the case. If you want that honeymoon stage, you have to follow 3 golden rules:
This in an obvious one, right? But I don’t mean loyalty in what you’re thinking. Of course it’s included, but this loyalty goes beyond not cheating on your partner. This loyalty is a promise to give up living your life in a world just for yourself. For most people, if not all, a good boyfriend and girlfriend relationship leads to a husband and wife relationship, which then leads to a father and mother relationship. As soon as you can begin to stop living your life just for yourself, the sooner you can begin relishing a deep and harmonious relationship. You’re no longer “you,” you’re an “us,” so that means your good and bad decisions will affect “us,” not “you.” As soon as you forget about “us,” that’s when all the problems begin. If you don’t stay loyal to “us,” then I could see how it could be very difficult for you to not stay in the honeymoon stage. The hardest part is forgetting about your own feelings and yourself, but as soon as you can accomplish that, you’re set for life.
This in a relationship is so very important. You have to make sure never to take yourself too seriously. Nothing in this world is too serious; even death can be laughed at. At this point, I’m trying to say that laughter comes from a specific state of mind. You have to be a very positive, intelligent person to be able to laugh at any given situation. When in a relationship, the moment you can no longer laugh with them or make them laugh is the moment your relationship is in trouble. Laughter in a relationship is a bond and an understanding of mutual happiness. It states that no matter what happens, all that really matters are that you two are in love and together.
By adventure, I mean the exact dictionary definition of it: an exciting or unusual experience; it may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking, with an uncertain outcome. Be willing to try new things with your partner outside of your normal routine. The moment you stop exploring intellectually and physically is the moment you stop growing and it’s the moment your relationship stops growing as well. Just because you’ve been in a relationship for 4 years doesn’t mean you’re that old married couple that just lounges around in matching tees and sweat pants all day (which is fine), that just means you two genuinely love each other. So because you genuinely love each other, you should do everything in your power to grow as an individual so that your relationship can grow– reaping all the fruits of your labor. Ignorance isn’t bliss, but being in a honeymoon phase for years and years is.
Bottom line is, you’re no longer “you.” “You” don’t matter. It’s all about “them” and ultimately, “us.” The moment you genuinely believe that, you’re headed in the right direction of a harmonious relationship.
#realtalk. Not gonna lie, that was some legit advice. Everyone, go thank Geo and remember to invite her to your wedding since she helped you make it happen. As usual, let it soak in and really understand it. Then go share it with your friends. Cause sharing is caring. Appreciate and peace!
