Prevent Your Relationship From Breaking Up In 4 Steps

By Sarah Scott

Do you have a sneaky feeling that your boyfriend may dump you? There are ways to put some brakes on the rough ride of a breakup. Don’t get discouraged, it may be tough to preserve a relationship, but it’s worth it.

Communicating in a clear and open fashion is an important first move. If you and your boyfriend are “having words”, state how you feel very clearly, but don’t go overboard by saying something you’ll regret. Don’t overwhelm your boyfriend, give him a chance to express himself and listen carefully. Listening and learning is a good way to prevent a breakup. Face it, your boyfriend is going to see things in a different light than you do. Any relationship requires gives and takes. An open mind is a gift, use it, work out a plan to help each other in the relationship.

Though it may be a little difficult, encourage your boyfriend in a way that shows you support his efforts. Remember, men feel good about a relationship in which they know someone is backing them up. If there is something that your boyfriend really likes to do, get involved, that will go a long way to preventing a breakup. Maybe he’s a sports fan and you’re not, maybe he likes to work on cars but you don’t, showing a little interest can go a long way to preventing a breakup. You may not like sports, but figure out a way to get involved that pleases him. If he’s feeling a little blue, touch him in an affectionate way and encourage him to talk about it. Every man has dreams, talk about them and encourage him. Good times, bad times – make sure you’re there for him.

As a third phase, look at yourself, build yourself up, improve in ways that you want to. That will make you more desirable to him. Maybe you’ve become too wrapped up in your job and become rather undesirable to be around. Becoming a person who doesn’t seem to enjoy time with your boyfriend is a good cause for a breakup. Everybody needs some self-improvement, figure out what’s best for you. Don’t change yourself too drastically, your boyfriend fell in love with you for a reason. Just put some new finishing touches on your persona. Spruce up your wardrobe, quit a bad habit or something he finds annoying. Do something that brings you joy. Go shopping. Read a book. Write poetry. If you’re awash with happiness, that spreads easily, and happiness is a great relationship saver.

A last bit of assurance for a steady relationship is to spend a lot of quality time with your significant other. Quality time should be time that involves only the two of you, doing something that gives you both a thrill. This improves a relationship, knits hearts and minds together. It’s a good idea to set up a “date night” every week. Or plan a long weekend away. Develop an interest or hobby that is special to both of you. Don’t forget that sharing a “roundup” of the day is a way to bring you closer. A relationship will grow stronger as you spend more quality time together.

Following these tips will go a long way toward preventing a breakup. Human beings are not perfect, so you must take the time and a consistent effort to build a human relationship. Willingness to do your part, maybe a little more, is most important in preventing a relationship from breaking up.
