The beginning of a relationship is usually good, the romance is abundant and both of you feel happy and contented. As time passes, you grew apart to the point that your relationship will end soon if you do nothing about it. It’s good if you start salvaging your relationship early to avoid complications. Here are some of the things you can do.
Avoid being naive, admit that your relationship not going well
Admitting you both have a problem will mean you are both willing to save your relationship. A lot of relationships are wasted because both sides were too stubborn to accept that they were drifting apart. Knowing early that your relationship has a problem will avoid future problems and complications adding up. Also, by admitting, you’ll be finding the solutions to fix it as well as discussing the reasons why your relationship is not good. Then of course once you know the cause, both of you can act on it.
“It takes two tango”
This not only applies to infidelities, but as well as saving your relationship. If you want to save your relationship then both of you need to work as a team, this would mean equal effort from both of you. Again, it would need both of your efforts not only just yourself, if your partner is not doing anything try giving him or her space. The hard part would be when your partner still doesn’t care even you gave them ample time, it only means one thing he or she no longer has feelings for you romantically.
Have a reasonable, calm, and rational approach
Usually when couples are drifting apart there seem to be more problems, arguments, and all sorts of emotions. During that try to be reasonable, calm and rational, to avoid escalating the problem. Take a breather if you think you’re about to burst and if your partner is unwilling to cooperate, be firm but don’t get angry. Both of you can then have a talk once ready and sort out your problems.
Take things slowly
Allow some space between you and your partner. Rushing things will make your partner's relationship, and this can lead to bad choices as well as heated discussions. Give yourself some and your partner too, use that time apart to pull yourself together and think about the direction of your relationship.
Sometimes disagree is the best solution
There are things you and your partner wouldn’t be able to solve even if you try very hard, the best thing to do would be agreeing to disagree. When you agree to disagree, it would mean that you are both unique and that you accept each other differences. Also, when you do that, it would save you the long arguments that both of you can’t stop mentioning.
Once you do those things, be patient and see how your relationship is going. Don’t be afraid that it might not end as you plan, if it does happen remember that you did your best, and it may be because that both of you were not right for each other.
