How to build a successful relationship.


Recommended Posts

Ok so here is some of my story some of it is spread throughout my earlier post if you want to know more on how I treated this girl.

Basically I did everything she and every other woman I known has told me they wanted to be treated. I didn't even know I could be that good to someone and I loved it. So my question is this: If I only know one way to treat a woman how do I build a REAL, GREAT, SUCCESSFUL relationship and not end up back here in a few years singing the blues on the healing after a break up board?

My bf, who then cheated on me, was always quoting the 4 cornerstones of a good relationship. But we never could agree what the four cornerstones where!!! lol I always said, Respect, trust, communication, and commitment. I think he kept changing commitment to something else, like sexual compatibility, or something like that...can't remember...it's been too long. Funny thing is, out of those 4, I thought trust was the one thing I had down pat. Our communication got rocky, cuz I confronted, and he withdrew. I was TOTALLY commited. I always felt where I failed was not respecting him enough. like talking disrespectul to him. But trust...I trusted him completely, and then find out he was cheating, and then lying over and over about it....boy, what an eye opener...

I feel as though I've always been a great communicator. I actually look forward to discussing my issues. And on compromise, well I probably compromised WAY too much.


Be careful here. Communication is mostly about really listening. Discussing HER issues too. Asking her about her hopes and dreams. Past relationships seemed to always involve men always talking about themselves and not as interested in me. Everyone loves someone who is interested in listening and talking about them.


My 3 ingredients to a sucessful relationship are:

1. Talk to me and listen to me. Remember what I said.

2. Take me out nice places sometimes, where I get dressed up and feel spoilt. Tell me I look beautiful.

3. Show lots of affection, hold my hand, snuggle


My current partner does this, and I love him with my whole heart and soul and feel completely satisfied.
