This week’s question: What’s the secret to a good relationship?

This week’s quote: “Seventy percent of it is just luck.”

Okay, then what’s the other 30%? The secret to a good relationship might just be eating lentils, dancing with 50,000 lesbians and having a heck of a lot of FUN, according to these two. I don’t know about you, but that sounds about right to me. Listen in for hot tips and a bunch of cuteness. Oh, and Australian accents!

    I think the secret to a good relationship is fourfold: 1) don’t think poorly of the other person. If you can’t give them the benefit of the doubt, then you’re not trusting that they are good person who may occasionally make mistakes. 2) share experiences with them and TALK about them! make inside jokes and understand the way that person sees the world. 3) be completely honest and communicative, even if you’re just telling your partner you are thinking about something and aren’t ready for a group analysis. Similarly, don’t think less of the other person for processing and feeling differently than you do; appreciate that they are sharing. 4) Know yourself and then share your goals, needs and wants with your partner. A relationship is NOT the time to figure out who you are and what you are doing with your life; that’s like going to a tailor, having them start making you a suit and then telling them you’re just interested in “trying it on”.
