Lasting love is hard to come by – how do successful couples make their relationships work? It is not diamonds and flowers that make a relationship remain as warm, loving and intimate as it was at the start. It is the little things. When you’re thinking to your partner, he or she’s more inclined to be thoughtful in return. Always trust and try to forgive. Focus on what they do right, not what they do wrong. Show your partner what you love, so that he or she can experience it as you do.
