Here’s what to focus on if you're both willing to put in the effort:
- Work out the communications issues.
- Set realistic expectations for the two of you. Hint: nothing is perfect!
- Try new things together regularly.
- Clear out your emotional baggage. That was then, this is now.
- Explore your partner’s interests.
- Create a daily connecting ritual.
- Accept your partner’s quirks. Hint: no one is perfect.
- Clear out your emotional baggage. That was then, this is now. (notice I put this one in twice 😉)
