Cupid’s Advice: 

When you’re in a relationship not every moment will be a good one. You’re partner can be experiencing something that doesn’t have much to do with you, but that doesn’t mean you should stand in the background. If you want to support your partner through tough situations, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Don’t make them ask for help: When going through something tough your partner may want your help and support, but won’t ask you. Be proactive and ask them what you can do for them and do what you think is best for them without your partner asking for it.

3. Speak up for them:  If your partner isn’t ready to address anyone or speak out regarding the situation, don’t feel shy speak for them. You are their partner and you know them the best. Say whatever you feel your partner would. Whether you’re telling people that your partner doesn’t want to talk right now or explaining the situation in full details, don’t be afraid to say something.
