4. If discussions turn into arguments, stop right there:
Relationships are not meant for winning or losing that you have to score more by winning an argument. Keeping quiet also works to maintain a good relationship; you may skip that discussion for that time and give things some time to settle. This is proven fact that statements given in anger are just to make the other person hurt, they may not mean to be true but works enough to make you regret on what you have said in anger as nothing can be erased but ignored.
5. Try to be a mirror image:
Try to understand his/her requirements and expectations out of you and figure out where do you actually lack and what can be improved more. Matching of thoughts with your partner reduces the chances of conflicts between the two of you.
6. Make your partner feel free:
Give your partner some space to be with himself/ herself. Let him/her spend time with old friends and keep them free for hanging out. If your partner wants to travel somewhere or want to go out, let them do what they want, we should not be setting any boundation for them. Seeking for space does not mean that your partner does not want you anymore; he/ she might just get peace out of it.
