Everyone has seen pictures on social media of couples hiking, riding bikes, working out together, hugging and kissing each other, and the list can go on and on. Most of the time those pictures have the caption “#relationshipgoals.”
A lot of individuals and couples strive to meet these relationship goals they see across social media. I say, make you own #relationship goals!
Each relationship is different. What works for one couple may not work for your relationship. You have to find what interests you and your significant other and just do it!
Maybe traveling isn’t your favorite activity to do, but maybe you are very creative and artsy. Instead of trying to travel the globe because you saw that was someone on Facebook’s relationship goal, why not have a cute and cozy arts and craft night at home with your partner.
Relationship goals don’t have to be huge, elaborate, and/or expensive. A walk in the park, a nice night indoors making cookies, or even a Netflix movie marathon can be a relationship goal you set.
The only relationship goals that should be standard across the board is finding someone who can make you happy, treat you fairly, and love you unconditionally.
Now I’m not saying that you can’t have the same relationship goals as other couples. I know I do, but majority of the goals should be based on your own likes and interests.
You should be able to have fun in your relationship and be able to communicate with one another about any and everything.
You may not know how to create your own #relationshipgoals. These simple steps to help you out:
1) Make a list of traits/activities that are important to you or fun to do when in a relationship
2) Make sure your goals are reachable
3) Ask your significant other to help you set goals for your relationship
4) Don’t set too many goals, so you won’t get overwhelmed
5) Celebrate when you meet your goals!
What are some of your #relationshipgoals? Know that your goals can change over time and that’s not a bad thing!
