It’s also important to keep your partner in the loop of your day-to-day activities.
Sharing Common Interests

One such activity can be cooking – you can either take cooking classes, or you can cook up meals together. Or you can even start gardening – these sure are activities that both of you can enjoy together.
Cuddling & Hugging Each Other

After all, studies show that cuddling with your partner can instigate a sense of comfort in you, and is a sign of a healthy relationship.
Having a Great Sense of Humour
Can you imagine your life surrounded by only serious people? God knows we all need humour in our lives. And if you are in a relationship, then, you need it, too!
When you are in a healthy relationship, you will find the right time to be witty – studies have shown that the couples who laugh even at the silliest and lamest jokes are the happiest amongst all of the other couples, thus increasing the level of love between each other.
Taking Time Out to Plan Future Together
Planning the future as a couple can go two ways – one is taking notes and calculators, and the other one is having a deep and meaningful talk with your partner.
You two are a team, so, you should work like one – no matter what the matter is, be it related to your career or even buying a house, you should take on the journey together. After all, the happy couples have a way of planning everything together, no matter how irrelevant the issue is.
