1. Make your loved one your first priority. If the phone rings in the middle of a discussion, let him finish what he is saying and then pick up the phone or call back.

2. Leave “I love you” notes on her Facebook page. This will let your partner and his Facebook friends know how in love you both are.

3. Share. Share your love, fears, and responsibility. Do not be greedy by trying to be all and do all. Excluding him from your life will push him away.

4. Try not to argue over finances. Instead of arguing over money, brainstorm ideas of saving and earning more together.

5. Make an “I love you” phone call. Call your her now just to say that you love her.

6. Be a friend and a partner. Be a best friend to your loved one. Do not say things that you wouldn’t have said to your best friend and have fun when you can.

7. Let your loved one sleep in and serve her breakfast in bed. She will love to wake up to homemade pancakes on a Sunday morning.

8. Organize a picnic. Plan a picnic just for the two of you.

9. Let your significant other know that you love him, despite his flaws. You love him just as he is.

10. Give your significant other a massage after a long work day. It is great stress relief for both of you.

11. Do not criticize his family or friends. You can join in only if he initiates the conversation. However, not in full force. If you really have strong feelings about the person, sugar-coating your opinion might work best in this situation.

12. Thank her for every little bit of love and care she gives you. Everyone loves to hear a “thank you” once in a while.

13. Appreciate and acknowledge his achievements. Whether in studies, career or homemaking, acknowledging his hard work is something he will greatly appreciate.

14. Have a long meaningful conversation. Having a meaningful conversation with your partner will help the two of you get closer.

15. Stargaze. Grab a blanket and lay down to stargaze tonight. Make this something you both do on a weekly basis.

16. Hold hands in public. Showing public displays of affection can help your relationship.

17. Give your partner time and space to play. No one likes to compete with a gaming system or a television show. But, if you give him time to play once in a while, it will make your relationship strong. Your partner will appreciate that you give him that time.

18. Let your partner finish their point in an argument. Even if you disagree, count to 10 before responding. This will give you time to really listen to what they are saying and to formulate a response.

19. Do not sweat the small stuff. Letting small issues rustle your feathers will create unnecessary stress in your relationship.

20. Talk to her about fond childhood memories. Let your significant other know how you grew up and the memories you have from when you were younger.

21. Apologize when you are wrong. Hewill appreciate it above all.

22. Trust your partner. Let your partner go out with friends. Do not hover and constantly ask where they are. Be trusting.

23. Never compare her to others. No one likes to be compared to other people. This is something you should never do.

24.Tell your partner that you are proud to be with him. This will boost his self-esteem and confidence in your relationship.

25. Make decisions about big plans and purchases together. If you are thinking about buying a new car or wanting to move into a house, never take it upon yourself to go to the dealership or call a realtor. Discuss major plans and decisions together.

26. Ask your significant other about her day. When your partner describes the day, be interested and try to understand her feelings and emotions.

27. Support your partner in reaching goals. Always be a support system for your significant other. If they want to lose weight, do not buy chocolate. In fact, try to eat healthier along with them.

28. Flirt with him. Be playful even when shopping for groceries. This will keep the spice in your relationship.

29. Go on a date. Planning a date night once a month will keep your relationship thriving.

30. Never go to bed angry. Try to resolve any issues before bed time.

31. Let your partner know when you miss her. This will let her know that you are thinking about her even when you two are not together.

32. Start a hobby together. Hobbies can be a unique bonding experience and will let you learn more about each other.

33. On special occasions, order balloons to their office. Surprising your significant other is a great way to show how much you love them.

34. Go for an adventure together. Explore a place that neither of you have been. This can be a vacation spot or somewhere local.

35. Do chores together. This bonding time will strengthen your relationship.

36. Sign up for a class together. Sign up for a dance, Zumba or cooking class.

37. Wake your loved one up with kisses and cuddles. This will keep the affection alive in your relationship.

38. Go to a sporting event together. If your partner likes baseball, purchase tickets to see his favorite team play.

39. Listen. Listen to what your loved one has to say. Sometimes it is so easy to drift off while someone is speaking, but make an effort to listen.

40. Positive reinforcement. Instead of criticizing your partner, find what he’s doing right and praise him.

41. Play a board game. Play Monopoly or any other board game together. This will keep the sense of fun in your relationship.

42. Go for a walk together. To the ocean, forest, or park. Enjoy holding hands and being outside. Appreciate the beauty of nature around you.

43. Wear a matching outfit. Why do we save matching only for weddings? People will definitely notice and compliment you on “being a great fit for each other.”

44. Kiss and hug your significant other for no reason. Showing affection toward one another is a great way to say “I love you.”

45. Play a game of strip poker. Spice up your card game by showing that you still find your partner sexy.

46. Pack a surprise love note in your loved one’s lunch. This will show that you still care and want to put something extra in her lunch.

47. Organize a romantic night. Candles, a romantic dinner, and a massage. Even if the night will end up with you falling asleep, she will appreciate the effort.

48. Brag to others about something your partner has achieved. This will show him that you support his goals and are happy when he reaches them.

49. Next time you have an argument, choose to be kind rather than right. Try to stop the argument, instead of keeping it going just to prove your point.

50. Focus on the positive. Concentrate on the positive aspects of your relationship, rather than dwelling on the negative.

My Husband and I have been having problems for the last six months. I found him cheating on me with several women after going through his phone. He still wanted to stay together and I told him it needed to stop immediately! He continued to talk to other women. I found it so hard to leave him and tried many times to stop him but to know avail. Eventually I had the commitment love spell cast by drstanleyspelltemple@hotmail.com on him and he started spending more time with me and stopped locking his phone all the time. He gave me a promise that he will never do it again and we moved in together. I do not feel as though he has gone back to his old ways because we are together all the time now. Thanks Dr Stanley for your help.

I never think I live long again and am so grateful about this great man called DR ADAGBA who cured my HIV AIDS last 3 weeks. I was in a great pain so I told one of my best friend called Susan; she told me that there is a great spell caster that can cure my HIV. I asked her if she had his email address, she gave me his email and I emailed him. He talked to me and he perform the necessary rituals and he told me that after two weeks I should go for a test and Which I did, when the doctor told me that am now an HIV negative, I couldn’t believe myself, I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on planet earth again, so I emailed him and thanked him. Please if you are having a similar problem please visit him/contact him on adagbaspiritualtemple@yahoo.com

My Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much.My husband abandoned me and my 2 kids for 2 years he said he wanted new adventures.I asked what i had done wrong but he said nothing.He continued paying our bills but moved in with another woman i was so frustrated and a times i will cry all night because i needed my husband by my side. all thanks to Olorunoduduwaspiritualtemple@gmail.com, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how master james cast a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to my self. i contacted him via email and after 24 hrs my story changed. words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the testimony as long as i live because he brought back happiness and joy into my life.If you having any kind of problem in your relationship and you need your man back i RECOMMEND master james .please do contact him directly on Olorunoduduwaspiritualtemple@gmail.com, Email him on; Olorunoduduwaspiritualtemple@gmail.com
