5 Secrets of Blissful Relationships

Have you ever seen a couple who had been together for 30 or 40 years and wondered what their secret was? You're probably aware that having a blissful relationship is something which is not easy to come by these days.

But once you learn these five secrets of blissful relationships and put them into practice, you'll be amazed at just how easy it can be to have a great relationship...

1. Clear Expectations

Clear expectations are the foundation of trust, compassion and understanding. You hear a lot of talk about trust these days, but finding a person you can trust to be in a close relationship with you is difficult. Contrary to common belief, this honesty is much less the cause of mistrust than ambiguous and unclear expectations.

 If you and your partner are unclear about what the expectations of the relationship are (for both sides), you're left with only assumptions... and assumptions almost always lead to disappointments, which are perceived as violations of trust.

2. Great Sex

Okay, maybe people don't talk about this one much but the human body is biologically wired for sexual bliss... and that' not going to change. While great sex isn't a principle which you can build an entire relationship on, it does add a delightful dimension to your relationship that few couples ever get to find.

And so what's the secret to having a great sex life? First and foremost is open and honest communication about what each person wants. Biologically, sex works out pretty well and without a lot of extra effort...just because of the way our bodies are wired. But making it great requires clear communication and reciprocity.

And speaking of reciprocity...

3. Reciprocity

There is no such thing as something for nothing, and this will apply to pretty much every area of life: your financial life, your relationships, your health, your career and your emotional well-being.

If one partner is giving too much and the other is taking too much, the relationship is always on its way downhill. But if you focus on meeting your partner's needs according to their expectations (instead of your own), they'll be much more likely to reciprocate.

Again, this is one of the reasons why clear expectations are so important. Many people try to practice reciprocity, but instead of giving their partner what they need, they give based on what they ASSUME that they need. So reciprocity requires clear expectations in order to make a relationship healthy.

4. Playfulness

Life is too short to be in a relationship where you can't have fun and be a little playful with your partner. One of the greatest joys in adult experiences can be acting a little childlike, and you need someone in your life who will share this experience with you. Of course, there are many different types of senses of humor, it's important to find someone who thinks the way that you do and who finds humor in the same things.

5. Perpetual Courtship

Too many couples start off on a really great note by working hard to please each other during the courting stage of the relationship, only to slack off once the "new" wears off. Make a commitment to court your partner every day of your relationship, even if you've been together for decades. This will inspire reciprocity and, together with the above four principles, will help you to build a blissful relationship.
