Spring is a time for making space for new beginnings. K&T is going to give you the Top 5 Tips for Co-Creating and Achieving Your Relationship Goals. Growth does not have to be a solitary act. Together, your partner(s) and you can have all the wonderful things you can conjure in your minds. Read on to find out how.

How to strengthen your bond

When it comes to deepening the relationship with your loves, you need to make space for each of you to be human. This includes making mistakes, communicating your fears, speaking up about what you want, and articulating your boundaries.

In other words, you’ve got to be vulnerable with one another. This can be hard for those who are emotionally avoidant. It becomes even more important for their partner(s) to encourage them to express themselves freely but give them the space to approach them when ready.

How to improve your sex life

Sex isn’t just about physically connecting. It’s also about connecting on a plethora of other levels spiritually and energetically. To be truly intimate with your partner(s), you should anticipate their wants and needs by observing their body language and listening to how their breathing patterns change with every touch or sensual stimulation.

For greater insight into what your partner(s) wants, asking in sexual and non-sexual situations is also helpful. While it might seem like an obvious answer, you’ll be surprised at what you learn about their fantasies and kink levels simply by asking. This can also help you both to become more creative while incorporating the other person’s wants and needs.

Be sure to have a conversation about any potential triggers or sexual boundaries that your partner(s) may have so that you don’t unintentionally traumatize them in the bedroom.

How to plan your future together

While it may seem ideal to stay in the honeymoon phase of your relationship, eventually you’ll need to sit down and discuss the goals for the future of your relationship. Whether you bring it up over dinner or have some fun and approach it as a coffee date, it’s a necessary step to take to ensure you’re on the same page and you’re continuing to thrive in the right direction. There is no wrong way to approach this, the following are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Take a Hike – Going on a hike together allows all parties involved to take in some fresh air and appreciate their surroundings. Moments like this can create the perfect backdrop for discussing ideas, goals, and asking important questions.
  • Dinner Date – An intimate dinner at your favorite place or at the home of your lover(s) can serve as just the right setup to present your goals and aspirations for the relationship. This also gives you an opportunity to check in with them and find out what’s on their mind and how they are feeling mentally and physically.
  • The Direct Approach – When it comes to being direct, timing is everything. Choose an organic moment and sit down with your partner(s) and speak your mind. This can happen in the morning at the kitchen table, or even while you’re outside taking in the view.

However, you choose to approach the discussion, be sure to come prepared with your ideas and what’s important to you going forward. Allow room for their needs and wants to be heard and be willing to compromise. You should also be clear about your deal breakers. Stand strong in what’s important to you because there is a fine line between compromise and betraying your own needs.

How to create a business and romantic relationship

Much like discussing your goals for the future, this will take planning and preparation. If you and your partner(s) are interested in forming a business relationship, the business should be something you can all be passionate about. For instance, maybe you each love plants or wine. One person can purchase inventory while another keeps the books or works directly with the customers.

If you and your loves all share the same interests, you’re already off to a great start. If not, perhaps you can all come up with an idea that will highlight the strengths of everyone. Once you’ve nailed down the business idea, you’ll need to come together and get realistic about projections, budgets, locations, marketing, etc. You’ll also need to set clear boundaries about what topics to allow at home and what to leave at the office. The discussion surrounding this can be handled similarly to the ideas above.

How to family plan

Parenthood looks different for everyone. Families can also mean different things to people. For instance, maybe you don’t want children, but you are interested in co-parenting a fur baby or two. In a situation like this, you can simply go to your local pet rescue or adoption fair and choose the furry loved one of your choice. However, you must still consider factors such as

  • food,
  • trips to the vet,
  • supervision.

Like a child, a pet is a huge responsibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly. You may also want to put a plan in place detailing who will pet sit if you all want to go on a romantic getaway.

For those who want children, there is more than one way to bring a child into your life. If you are born with a uterus, you may be able to conceive a child by fertilizing your own eggs. If you’re not sure of your personal fertility capabilities be sure to visit your doctor to find out more about your options.

If normative childbirth is not an option for you, you and your partners may also consider the following:

  • adoption,
  • fostering,
  • surrogacy.

Each of these options comes with its own set of pros and cons so sitting down with one another to discuss this and getting clear on your boundaries is important. No person should feel pressured into making one choice over another, especially if their body may potentially be involved in the process.

Spring is the perfect time to cultivate new life, ideas, and passions into your relationship goals. Use this time to speak to your partner(s) about what sets your soul ablaze and what will help to bring you all to the next positive level of your relationship. Don’t be afraid to discuss the big things because, in the end, this is how you will evolve and grow as partner(s) as well as individuals.
