Cupid’s Advice:

Long lasting relationships are hard to find. At times you may date someone and truly wonder how long you’ll be together. Cupid is here to help you determine whether your relationship will last:

1. Values: In order to make a relationship last, you need to know what your partner values. Sometimes you can tell if a relationship has an expiration date if you both value different things. Learning about what is most important for your partner to be happy is achieved by having open communication with each other.

2. Compatibility: Differences are great, but if you’re too different from your partner it might not work out. There needs to be some common ground that bonds you both together in order to have a successful relationship. There is no fun in being with someone you’ll constantly bicker or disagree with.

3. Passion: The best way to make a relationship last is by loving the person you’re with and wanting to be in their company. Having passion is a great way to keep your partner interested. Being bored in a relationship is a tell-tale sign that it won’t last. Successful relationships know how to have fun.
