We all want to have better relationships with people, but many of us are unsure of how to accomplish this. These four simple practices can improve your relationships significantly.


"Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay." -- Dalai Lama

 Do you have trouble understanding relationships? If so, then you're not alone. Relationships can be one of the most difficult challenges of the human existence.

Learning How To Balance "Me" With "We" In Your Relationship | SEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS |
The healthiest relationships are those in which each person takes time to be alone and cultivate "me" time. Communicate to your partner how important that is, or risk damaging your future together.


You find yourself with a committed partner. You’re in love. It’s one of the best relationships you’ve ever had… but you’re about to do something very risky.

The Four Things That Kill a Relationship Stone Dead

The Four Things That Kill a Relationship Stone Dead | SEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS |

A recipe for divorce: criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling.

For over 40 years the psychologist Professor John Gottman has been analysing relationships, both good and bad.


He's followed couples across decades in many psychological studies to see what kinds of behaviours predict whether they would stay together in the long-term or were soon destined for the divorce courts


.Amongst the factors he identified, four have stood out, time and time again. When Gottman sees a couple's communication overrun with these, the chances are they will divorce in an average of around six years from their marriage.
