Generosity is usually something that comes easily in the first blush of love – he’s taking you out, buying you flowers, calling all the time and you’re making him dinner, stocking your fridge with his favorite foods and agreeing to watch more baseball games than you’d like. But somewhere down the line, the generosity seems to wane. Keep your new love strong and vibrant by continuing to be generous. You don’t need to spend a fortune, though. Generosity can be as simple as rubbing his back after a hard day, knowing when he needs a sounding board or spending the day doing something he wants to do because you know he needs a boost.
It’s inevitable that if you’re in a relationship, you’re going to fight, but if you want yours to last, you’re going to have to fight fair. This means listening to each other, being open to discussing even the more uncomfortable or frustrating topics and being flexible when things don’t go your way. If you can’t resolve your arguments in the early stages of a relationship, you aren’t going to have much luck doing it as time goes on. Fight fair now so you can learn from each other and figure out the best ways to compromise when disagreements arise.
