Going to sleep at the same time is a necessity. When you go to bed together, you’re promoting healthy relationship patterns.
You should have activities that the two of you look forward to doing as a couple. Whether it’s picking a new recipe to try every weekend or going for a run. Find something fun to do consistently together.
Happy couples emphasize the positive things that their partner does. This means that if something is bothering you, you have a real conversation about it. Nitpicking, nagging, or criticizing are not the way to someone’s heart.
Before you leave for work in the morning, give your partner a really great goodbye kiss and say I love you. When you come home from a long day, do it again.
People forget that the small things make a difference. When you begin your day with a loving gesture, you’re starting on a great note.
Nothing beats the I-can’t-keep-my-hands-off-you-and-am-so-obsessed-with-you honeymoon phase. When the honeymoon phase is over, the passion doesn’t have to also disappear.
Happy couples work to keep intimacy and romance alive in the relationship.
Having a date night is essential.
Date night encourages you to keep the spark alive. As silly as it sounds, getting dressed up and going out, just the two of you, keeps the excitement strong.
When you enjoy each other’s company, your relationship flourishes.
Your significant other is someone you can talk to about anything, anywhere, anytime — so make sure you take advantage of that.
Your relationship shouldn’t feel like a routine. Your life as a couple should be unpredictable.
Embrace spontaneity and surprise each other with fun new activities.
When you’re together, you should focus entirely on each other.
Take a break from technology. Social media can all wait until the morning.

Focus on what you two share, and make your unique bond the best it can be.

Happy couples resist the temptation to go to bed at different times.
They go to bed at the same time, even if one partner wakes up later to do things while their partner sleeps.
Don’t minimize the importance of activities you can do together that you both enjoy. If common interests are not present, happy couples develop them.
At the same time, be sure to cultivate interests of your own; this will make you more interesting to your mate and prevents you from appearing too dependent.
If and when they have a disagreement or argument, and if they can’t resolve it, happy couples default to trusting and forgiving rather than distrusting and begrudging.
