hey!!! well.. just wanted to share things about your topic here.... in my own points of view, the first thing you must do is... don't be too sure that he is the one for you. remember there are still possibilities that may happen, we don't know. you and your boyfriend will be celebrating your 1 year anniv? congrats for that coz now a days it only takes months or less. never ever count on how many years you've been together it's because it doesn't matter how many years you've been, or months whats the most important thing is today or the future happen. PLuss added to that my friend learn to love yourself first before loving too much, you know what i mean right!!! if you apply this you will be confident enough. this are a good tips that i will give you: 1. you must love yourself and respect yourself first 2. don't be too nugger this will be one cause of break ups 3. don't be too doubtful to your boyfriend 4. trust one another 5. communicate each other from time to time 6. have time for each other 7. don't be too serious, having a good sense of humor may help to make a lasting relationship. 8. don't expect anything. as much as possible....go with the flow 9. be faithful and remain loyal. 10. sharing thoughts and ideas and secrets is a plus factor. REmember the bible says: "LOVE IS PATIENT AND KIND, LOVE ISN'T JEALOUS, IT DOES NOT PUT ON AIRS. IT IS NOT SNUBISH LOVE IS NEVER RUDE. IT IS NOT SELF SEEKING. IT IS NOT PRONE TO ANGER. NEITHER DOES NOT REJOICE IN WHAT IS WRONG BUT REJOICES WITH THE TRUTH. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO LOVES FORBEARANCE TO IT'S TRUST IT'S HOPE IT'S POWER TO ENJURE" God Speed.... cachei

Its great having been together for a year. My boyfriend and I will be celebrating 1 yr and 6 months together. If you trust them and are honest with them, and are loving and understanding then you will have no problem. Mel x

When you are his girl friend and not married still then you will be really enjoying your life...because you and him both will be happy with each other...but after marriage there comes the real life...so dont expect too much...and for longlasting relationship you should trust each other, have faith, have patience and live life for each other...

Well, first of all you have to realize that he's not a prince charming. He's human with flaws, faults and things that will p!ss you off from time to time. You have to learn and accept these for what they are. And of course, communication, honesty and trust. You have to talk to him about everything. If something bothers you, tell him, talk to him, don't just ignore it and assume that it'll go away or that you have no right to be bothered by it. And encourage him to do the same. Without communication there is no growth, if there is no growth, it won't last.
