How to Make a Relationship Charming
1. Communication is a perfect key!
While this may seem redundant, communication is what lacks in a LOT of relationships.
Couples are simply not talking to each other anymore and are relying on assumptions to get through their days and nights.
Sadly, this leads to a lot of misunderstandings and confusion.
Generally, this also leads to the death of several relationships.
Assumptions are a double-edged sword. Sometimes, relying on your intuition can be a good thing if you really know your partner.
However, more often than not, your partner feels that he/she is not being heard and resentment grows until it becomes a festering wound in your relationship.
Alternately, there are no real mind readers.
If you want something of your partner (or if they have an expectation they want to be fulfilled), you need to open your mouth and say it.
Nobody really knows what’s going on in your head but you.
The only way you can get a point or expectation across is to communicate.
If you find your relationship has come to some sort of halt, the only way you can figure things out is to discuss the matter with your significant other.
Perhaps they are frustrated with something or want to do something differently.
Either way, they have an innate need to be heard and acknowledged.
If you treat your partner like a piece of furniture instead of an equal half of your relationship, he/she will start to want to end the relationship.
Thing is, communication can boil down to something simple like how your partner’s day went.
If he/she feels like you’re actually fulfilling his/her need to be acknowledged, then you might be able to gain insight into how your relationship truly is progressing.
By expressing your wants, needs, and expectations to your significant other, you will find that morale will improve and he/she will actually want to help you improve your relationship.
The same goes for when your partner expresses his/her own needs and wants.
2. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new

If you’re constantly going to the same places and doing the same activities, your relationship will eventually feel like one big chore that you don’t want to put effort into.
You need to get out of your comfort zone and start looking for new and interesting activities to do with your partner.
You need to add more excitement into your relationship and try an activity that you wouldn’t have considered for a date night.
It’s a great way to get to know your partner again and enjoy yourselves.
If you’re always doing dinner and a movie, how about going axe throwing instead? Or, instead of a quick weekend trip to the lake, how about trying white water rafting?
Even the simplest of changes can add that dormant spark to your relationship.
