Learning how to improve your love life takes time and experience, but what if you wanted to find out some easy tips right away, without all the possible suffering or regret? These are tips I have learned throughout the years, but that still remains relevant for me even though I’m in a happy relationship. These tips were life-changing for me, so I hope that by sharing them with you, they can be life-changing for you, too.
There are so many areas of our lives that may feel like they need improving, but love affects it all. Maybe you’re pretty happy in your relationship, but you just want to ideas on how to improve, or maybe you have no idea what to do when it comes to your love life. You want to improve your relationships with the people you love; you want to build more intimacy with your partner. So let’s get onto some ways to improve your love life.
How to improve your love life
Your “love life” can mean so many things. Firstly, it could mean your level of intimacy with your partner. Maybe you want to improve your love life by making it steamier in the bedroom. Building more fire with your partner can actually sometimes take some mental thought and planning! You need to find out what it is that turns your partner on and what it is that turns you on, and that means opening up a line of communication and curiosity. Everyone has sexual fantasies of some kind. Don’t be afraid to ask yourself what the fantasy is for you or her, and don’t be afraid to try something completely new when it comes to the bedroom. Sometimes the longer you’re in a relationship with someone, the longer you play it safe sexually.
Your love life could also mean the health of the relationships you have with the people you love. This is what I want to get into a bit more in this blog. So many people enter our lives and we develop a sense of responsibility and a level of affection for them – whether they be friends, coworkers, or girlfriends. We feel connected to them – and that is part of the beauty of life – our relationships with one another and that love we share. But often it’s not always reciprocated or we attract people that are not the best for our lives. Here are my secrets for developing healthy, lasting relationships in your life and for improving your love life.
5 secrets to better your love life
Secret 1: Believe actions and not apologies.
Sometimes the people that we love in our lives mess up, so they apologize. Sometimes they do it over, and over, and over. When we love someone so much that we forgive just because we don’t want to hurt ourselves, then we forgive and we forget. But we have to remember that a person’s actions speak louder more than their words, even if those words are “I’m sorry.”
Actions are the true verb of what love is. A lot of times in relationships and dating, we want to believe apologies because it’s easier to believe them. We have the plan to make the relationship work, to make this person be with us forever, and we have expectations. We forget that relationships are also lessons in life. If we don’t show up for those lessons, we try to build an expectation and try to control the outcome, and we end up not learning from the lesson itself.
If someone continually apologies for the same thing over and over again, then believe their actions before their apologies. Otherwise, your relationship and your love life may be toxic. It may be manipulative or on the verge of a breakup. The only way you can really save that relationship is by looking at things from a new perspective – by communicating openly with them about how you feel, rather than accepting their actions don’t fall in line with their words.
Secret 2: Don’t fall in love with potential.
We get into relationships and hope that they will be a certain way. We have the expectation someone will love us for who we are, that they will listen and show up for us. We end up falling in love with the potential of that person to be those things for us, rather than who they are in that present moment.
But no one wants to be in love with someone who cannot see them for who they are in that present moment or who doesn’t want to be part of their life in a real way. We end up falling in love with the dream of what that person could be, rather than who they might really be in that moment.
Do you pay attention to the expectation that you write in your head? Are you aware of the preconceptions you may have of someone without really getting to know them? These are important to things to know for yourself. It’s important to focus on the present moment of how this person exists in your life, not how they could be in your life.
Secret 3: Believe the red flags.
Red flags navigate our relationships. When we pay attention to red flags, we start to understand the inner nature of the person that is in front of us. We often get distracted by red flags and we don’t pay attention to them because we are trying to fill a void of comfort. We don’t want to be lonely, so we ignore the red flag. But the difference between a healthy person and an unhealthy person is paying attention to red flags and not waiting for those red flags to unravel before your eyes. You do yourself a great disservice when you don’t trust your intuition.
No matter who you are, you are going to attract a healthy or unhealthy person. There are all sorts of people out there; all of them have good and bad qualities. The difference with qualifying or getting the love life that you ultimately want is making sure you focus on the people that show up for you in your life. That means: you get good at saying goodbye to the wrong ones, and you get good at saying hello to the good ones.
Secret 4: Believe in your worth.
So often in our lives, we lose confidence in ourselves, which is why I put this piece of advice in a lot of my blog topics. We’re trying to figure out – what am I worthy of? Who am I as a person? What do I need in my life and what do I absolutely not need in my life? What are my standards?
Too often we compare our answers to these questions to other people, even sometimes to our own partners. But here’s the thing: no matter how beautiful someone’s life may be or seem, you can’t compare yourself to others. Doing that diminishes your self-worth. When you hold yourself with integrity and understand you are your own independent being, then you have self-worth. You are not comparing what someone may be posting on social media to your own life. You understand that what matters most is your integrity and knowing how to carry yourself. That is what women are attracted to at the end of the day, too. This is so important towards getting sustainable results in a relationship and bettering your life overall.
Everything in life requires work. You can’t define your self-worth by never getting up and showing up for the work you have to do on it. That means not sitting on your couch and being lazy, externally and internally. In order for us to show up for ourselves, we have to put it in the work. Your self-worth is invaluable and is completely about how you carry yourself as a person and how you feel as yourself.
Secret 5: Don’t lower your standards.
We’re always trying to appease people, to do the job right and to fit ourselves into somebody’s else’s glove. We don’t inspire ourselves enough to make someone fit within ours sometimes, or make compromises and adjustments so that they can fit in theirs and we can fit in ours.
Sometimes we just let our standards become lax, or we don’t have them at all. We don’t have our own roadmap to guide us to our relationship. If you want to eliminate toxic relationships, this is really something to live by. Maintain your standards; they are the roadmap to your life. This is what teaches other people how to treat you, how to set your boundaries, and what values you need to attain in your life.
And having standards is sexy! When a man knows what he wants and where his boundaries are, that’s sexy. So don’t be ashamed to maintain your ground and to walk away from a situation if you want to.
How to improve your love life and be happy
You are the true and ultimate driver in your life. Forgive yourself and be kind to yourself. There are so many times in our lives when we are cruel to ourselves because of guilt or shame or because things don’t work out exactly how we planned them out. We compare ourselves to others because we don’t have what so and so has, or we don’t have the relationship they have and we desperately want. But life is about learning and being okay with your own individuality. When you start being fully at home in your own skin, that is when life starts working for you.
Our lives are forever evolving and changing with our experience and sense of self. We come into this world and we leave it alone – as existential as that sounds. You are the true master of your life. You have the power to change your personal relationships, work relationships, your love relationships. You have the power to change every relationship in your life.
