15 Smart Rules for a Healthy Relationship

17 May

To add a dose of sense and sensibility to Sentinel’s ‘Guerrilla Dating Tactics’, here are 15 (chivalrous) ways to keep your relationship working. Of course, there is no shortcut to bliss, but this’ll serve you right in 90% of cases.

We all have various strands of relationships in our everyday life – with our family, friends, colleagues and lovers. Sometimes these are good relationships, sometimes bad, and at other times neither, sort of no man’s land, with significant room for improvement.

What is the determining ‘factor?

Isn’t it our thoughts which engender our feelings? And isn’t it these feelings which shape our actions and coincidently a Rubik’s cube of results? So then, we can see that the key to healthy relationships lies in sage-like simplicity (in theory at least). That is, tweak it at its source – better your thoughts!

Do share with us in the comments if you have your own time-tested tips.

    This makes my “Rules of Engagement look like a step by step guide to ripping others into shreds! Lol.

    The funny thing is that if people observe the first rule, the rest of them will fall into place.

    1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
    2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.
    a. Sexual passion.
    b. Sexual intercourse.
    c. A love affair.
    4. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
    5. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
    6. An expression of one’s affection: Send him my love.
    a. A strong predilection or enthusiasm: a love of language.
    b. The object of such an enthusiasm: The outdoors is her greatest love.

      I agree Ducarta. Good point, the term ‘love’ is indeed open to interpretation due to it’s liberal use.

      I’d say point 1 would be the most accurate to what I’d relate to as being in ‘LOVE’ in the truest, deepest and enduring sense – that is, being in oneness. In fact, it is the only feeling that can contribute to a healthy and stable relationship in the long run.
