They want to keep it new forever.
Below are some tips that you should not overlook in the quest to making your relationship last long:
1. Give each other compliments
As the relationship progresses, we tend to we forget to tell the person we are with what we like about them, praise their good qualities and so on. Giving compliments and receiving them back is a great way to connect and make each other feel special. Compliments can range from telling them that you like what they’re wearing on a particular day to things like integrity and judgement. Be sure not to lie about things, but also do not hold back when it is time to appreciate your partner. It serves as an ego-booster, too! And who doesn’t like hearing nice things about them?
2. Do things that are weird together
Finding things to do that are not conventional or in other words, weird, serve as a great bonding experience. These are things that only you and your partner will share.

It is very important to remember birthdays and anniversaries and celebrate them together. Milestones and successes should be celebrated too. Your partner has been with you throughout the journey so it is only fitting to have a celebration with them.
8. Schedule a Couple Time everyday
