Renowned psychologist, author, and social scientist David Niven reveals the secrets to achieving a perfect relationship in his latest book, 100 Simple Secrets of Great Relationships. Here are the secrets for a healthy, happy and trusting relationship.
According to the author, comparing our lives to others won’t change it; it only changes how we think about our own lives!
Don’t Be Fooled By Fairy Tales
According to Niven, we need to see the magic we dream of in the love we feel for our partner and not expect the things that happen in fairy tales.
Be Open to Communicate
Do not expect your partner to understand your feelings spontaneously in a distressing situation. The other party cannot read your mind. What you have to do is tell your partner how you feel.
Find Common Hobbies and Interests
Developing common interests and hobbies support positive communication and help maintain the fun between partners.
Develop Your Sense of Humour!
According to the author, having a good sense of humour in a relationship helps make an average day more enjoyable and lessens the burden of a hard day.
