Wise words: A lesson to successful relationships (the romantic kind)


A guy called Mark Manson was about to get married. Naturally, he asked around for advice and stories on what makes successful relationships successful, here were the top findings:

  1. Be together for the right reasons
  2. Have realistic expectations on relationships and romance
  3. The most important factor in a relationship is not communication, but respect
  4. Talk openly about everything, especially the stuff that hurts
  5. A healthy relationship means two healthy individuals
  6. Give each other space
  7. You and your partner will grow and change in unexpected ways; embrace it
  8. Get good at fighting
  9. Get good at forgiving
  10. The little things add up to big things
  11. Sex matters… a LOT
  12. Be practical, and create relationship rules
  13. Learn to ride the waves
