75% of people experience multiple breakups in their lifetime. Going through a breakup is definitely not one of the most pleasant experiences we have, so having as few of them as possible before finding “the one” would be nice. While sometimes the reasons we split are objective, there are still things that can be overcome to lead to that coveted happily ever after.
I did some research and uncovered some typical mistakes we make that ruin our romantic relationships.
1. Not living in the moment together
Spending quality time together is very important for a relationship. Couples that do this are more satisfied in their relationships. That’s because they share experiences that bring them closer together. But it’s important to remember that it’s quality time that matters over quantity. Lack of communication is one of the most important reasons for a breakup.
If you watch a movie together or just sit on the same couch all day but mind your own business the whole time, you don’t spend any quality time with one another. Try to do things that make you interact, like playing games or taking a walk together.
2. Getting used to your partner
The threat here is getting so used to everything good your partner does that you start taking it for granted. If they always keep the house clean, don’t just assume it’s part of the routine and not worth showing your daily appreciation for. Even though it’s always been like this, it still is a daily effort your partner makes for you.
