And here is to a great love relationship….

It takes effort for relationships to work and stay intact. Here are a few tips.

Use your head, not just your heart, when picking a man and look at the whole package before making your choice.

Know the difference between lust and love – it will save you a lot of heartache.

Learn to voice your desires: Your partner isn't psychic and he can't make you happy unless you let him know what fulfills you.

Work at your relationship: A close bond is forged through hard work and constant attention; it's not automatic.

Don't let yourself go: You don't have to bring sexy back but being clean and presentable goes a long way.

Understand that your feelings may change over time: you won't stay drunk with joy forever but that doesn't mean you don't love each other.

There is a difference between sex and intimacy: Sex is one avenue to intimacy. Intimacy involves talking and revealing every facet of yourself – the good, the bad and the ugly.

Communicate, communicate, communicate! Talking about everything is the only way you'll deal with problems, maintain intimacy and know if you're on the same wavelength.

 Understand that you're a unit, but you're both also individuals and your partner is not responsible for your personal happiness – you are. Have a life outside your relationship.

Learn to apologise – even if you don't always say "sorry", making up after an argument is crucial
