Quick tips to ensure long-term dating happiness.

Relationships and friendships can go stale after time. It is important that you keep your partner's feelings in mind and treat them as you would like to be treated. Here are some quick tips from our partner Dateline Platinum, which will help you reinvigorate your relationship.

If you’ve found someone through online dating that you’ve been seeing for a while, then you might think your dating worries are over. After all, this is a serious relationship now, so you don’t need any help, right?

Actually, you may need more help than you think. If your relationship is moving on, it’s because you’ve got over the initial thrill of finding a partner and have settled into a routine however this doesn’t mean that it’s no longer important to make your partner feel special

It's the thought that counts

Start with the little things. Everyone appreciates a little thought now and again,and this will be true throughout your whole relationship, no matter how long it lasts. It was probably your attention to detail that was one of the things that attracted your date to you in the first place, so it would be a shame to lose it now. Whether it’s opening doors for your date or taking your bloke to a pub where the football is on, keep making the effort.

Make time for your partner

We all know that people are working long hours and have careers to maintain. We also know that our other activities – going to the gym or the clubs we belong to – can take up our time. Make sure there are things you can do as a couple so that you are spending time together – even if it’s meeting up for a drink after your individual commitments are over. It gives you something to look forward to and means that neither of you ends up feeling neglected.


Sounds obvious, but it’s usually the obvious stuff that lets you down. Don’t flirt with other people; pay attention to what’s happening in your date’s life; try and sort out any problems before they get too big to handle, and don’t forget to tell them how you feel about them – everyone needs an ego boost now and then.

Dating is fun, and it’s great when it turns into a longer relationship, but you have to work just as hard at keeping that relationship together.
