We all want to have that special magic that makes a relationship
successful. We wonder after the first date could this be the one that has
that magical touch; the truth is there is no magic; it takes hard work and
some creativity to make his happen; this article will probe some key
strategies that may assist you and your partner in finding such success.
The first strategy is respect for one another. With little or no respect, a

you both need to treat each other as a complete person and understand
that both of you have separate ideas and feelings. There needs to be the

is said and finally holds each other’s needs and feelings in high regard.
Another tactic is to do the unexpected; such as leaving notes ( some
could be suggestive ) on mirrors, in lunches in their pockets; surprise your
partner with something they like such as the remote or dinner. The point is
to show you care and be spontaneous. When you and your partner are
practicing this tactic it shows empathy and support as well as developing
a relationship that says “I am here for you”.
Commitment is giving your word and understanding that you both are
in this relationship in happy or bad times; that together you both will work
together to stay connected. Compromising sometimes is a huge part of
this because you both want the best for each other and by working
together you can achieve your needs.
The last strategies I will mention are passion and compassion. These
two feelings are similar yet different; passion can be very powerful
especially at the onset of a relationship. The expression “can’t keep hands
off one another “ is a good example of this. However, the feelings of love
