this pertains to any relationship worth saving for,, we lost, found, love, miss, take for granted a person in our life,, a friend, a lover, family, office mates, colleagues.. we value any relationship we had, but what would you do if that relationship you treasure starts to fail? the person close to you slowly walks away.. what is more bothering is that you did'nt even know the reason why. how would you save that relationship?

trust, honesty and open communications are always the keys in a relationship for me... without these elements, it is so hard to make a relationship works... so i think the first step to save a relationship is to have an open communication first with the other person and ask for the honest reason why he/she is walking away from the relationship... from there, they have to work out something together if they still want to save the relationship... take care and have a nice day...

understanding and faith on your partner is the main thing which keep us together. when the faith decreases , we go apart . keep in touch with your partner and try make him happy.

So much has to go into saving a relationship. Commitment, love, trust and loyalty are things we search for and try to hold on to. these are ingredients that keep a relaationship together. They could also be what can save one too.

hello, In this life,we fail from relationships,dreams or goals. No matter how much we tried to save a relationship,if only one is trying to save it,it will never work. it always takes two to tango. If the other person won't cooperate ,our effort will be wasted. To save a relationship it needs love,respect and value of a relationship. Do not feel frustrated,just learn to moved on from each failure. Acceptance is one way of moving on easily. Have a great day

Hello kparaino, Speaking of relationship whether between a couple, lover, friends, classmates, colleague, siblings, children, it doesn't need any theories and it doesn't have a perfect theory to make it the way we wanted to be. The bottom line is for all relationships needs a total respect. Though how painful the parting is but its the beauty of life and in someways it can help strengthen the relationship. Everything has to be fall to each own places no matter how we contradicted it but each has life of each own and a destiny, what other may call. Theres no need to know the reasons at all times and just be true to yourself and be at yourself at most times thus it will keep your love ones stick to you if you show them the real you. That may lead them to understand you at utmost level. Don't be afraid of loosing them for being at that emotion you just let it happen at sooner time. Happy myLotting!!

No relationship flows in a continuous fashion. It goes on and off. Sometimes things are way out of your hands. In moments like these you need to have patience. You should always be clear to yourself. The only person that you need to explain it to is your own conscience. If there is no trouble with it, then there is nothing you should do about it. There are times when you get misunderstood. People have all these assumptions, long held beliefs and then hurt you with that. Sometimes it's just the ego that's get hurt. But whatever it is, you should give that person some space and time, until he does some self-analysis. Once he does that things become normal again. Conflict is not a stable state. So each of us will finally try to resolve the conflict and make peace again. This is the basic inclination. You need to wait patiently till that moment comes.

Perhaps quality time is lost as the relationship progressed. If I will be in that situation ( I deeply pray not), I will talk to my partner and discuss with him how our relationship is going. If love is still there between us, perhaps it would be a good thing if the both of us will reminisce our first days or months as lovers. Moreover, I will suggest that we do things that we have not done before and go to places we have not visited. Maybe in those ways, the spark of love would return to its previous track.

Greetings! Well, its a bit hard to save a relationship but the only key is communication. Both sides should talk about it regarding the problem. Like me, I've met this guy and I notice that he's staying away from me, I don't know why? before he's sweet but now he's not. He has a lot of excuses not to see me. I wonder why and now I'm making my move to save it. No matter what would be the result, at least I'll try my best to save it. I'll talk to him in a nice way. I'll tell him why he's staying away from me and what are his problems about me so that I could fix it. That's what I'm going to do. :)

Mutual respect is the main of key in keeping the relationship between human beings, whether in the form of friendship, introductions, marriage and so forth. Not much theory in keeping the relationship, although if there many theories, will back to the main of key namely the mutual respect between each other
