Are your relationship needs being fulfilled? This is the key to making a relationship sizzle!
The single best predictor of whether a relationship will be successful or not, is whether both partners' needs are being fulfilled. What makes this challenging is that there is no one-size-fits-all recipe when it comes to romantic needs. Not only does individuals require different things to make them feel loved and appreciated, there is also a vast difference between the love needs of men and women.
By doing whatever it takes to make each other happy, feelings of love can be created, maintained and restored. Want an easy start? Click Here!
Men's Relationship Needs
For men to be happy in a relationship, they often want to feel valued above all. They want their partner to admire them and appreciate their contribution as providers and protectors of the family unit.
Here are a few things most men can't do without:
* Sexual fulfilment
* Recreational companionship
* A partner that he can be proud of
* Domestic support, peace and quiet
Women's Relationship Needs
Women are often happiest when they experience emotional connection with their partners. They want intimacy - a feeling that they are the most important person in the world to their partner. And the more emotionally secure and happy a woman feels in a relationship, the more she is willing to open up sexually to give a man what makes him feel like king of the castle.
Here are the things most women can't do without:
* Honesty and openness
* Financial support
* Family commitment.
Failure to do what makes each other happy, creates marital conflict. Fulfilling each other's needs creates a happy cycle.
Unfortunately, things often go wrong in relationships and when they do, you can bet your bottom dollar that it has to do with a shift in focus.
In the beginning stages of a relationship it's easy to make our partners feel loved, admired and appreciated. We're focused on what would make them happy. But as the years go by, we often start to focus more and more on our own needs. Selfishness creeps in and as resentment builds, we give less, only to receive less, and so the cycle goes.
So what to do if we find ourselves stuck in a relationship in which happiness has fled the building? A good start is to re-romanticize the relationship.
