5 Last Minute Relationship Tips for Valentine’s Day- At MasterSelf, we’re no strangers to procrastination, and we’re sure that some of you out there aren’t, either. Knowing that, we came up with a list of relationship tips for you just in time to save your Valentine’s Day. (Unlike last night’s podcast, these tips are serious.)

“My relationship tip is to work hard at cultivating your relationships. The grass isn’t greener on the other side, it is greener where you water it. Relationships take time and effort to be worth it. It takes time to establish communication and get to know each other closer. Don’t be afraid to work at it and to try, so long as your partner is happy to do the same. Find a partner who will work with you at trying to make your relationship healthy and viable. Find someone you want to work hard to build a life with.”
“Be yourself. Genuine interaction is of utmost importance. Once you’re comfortable enough to be yourself in front of others, it becomes a lot easier to think on your feet, improvise and flow naturally with conversations. Genuine interaction also leads to mutual trust. And if you trust each other, it becomes easier to communicate whatever issues you may have towards each other, leading to a more gratifying relationship.”
“If you are attempting to find your soul mate, I have some good news: the Law of Attraction is on your side. However, in order for this law to work completely in your favor, you need to know exactly what you want in a partner. Commanding that you meet your soul mate is not sufficient. You may find that you begin attracting people who pique your interest, but the relationship always has a fatal flaw and fades away. Sound familiar? If you would like to avoid this, I recommend first getting a very clear picture of what you want your partner to look like, what they care about and believe in, and how the relationship will make you feel. You can manifest the perfect partner by 1) Visualizing the person, from their physical features down to their personality, interests, and character traits; and 2) Experiencing the emotions of unconditional love, compassion, and security throughout every cell of your body, so that you can truthfully discern when you have met The One. Sit down, close your eyes, get quiet, and use your imagination and your emotions to create the relationship reality that you deserve.”
“Relationships are a balance, an equality. Operate using the Golden Rule, and you’ll only have problems if your significant other doesn’t. If you treat your significant other as you’d want to be treated, chances are the bar will be set perfectly. If you treat them as an equal, the fights you get in will end on a better note.”
“As the inscription above the great Temple of Delphi (and also Drake) famously said- ‘Know Yourself.’ I personally think that this is the best thing that you can do to better your relationships (not only with your significant other, but also friends, family, and coworkers.) The better you know who you are, what you want, what you like and dislike, and what you’re looking for, the better off you will be. You won’t be wasting your time (or the time of anyone else, for that matter,) and you won’t be one of those people (that everyone hates) that is desperately in love with some new person every week or every month. That kind of behavior is indicative of someone who desperately needs validation from others- don’t be like that. Learn who you are, and be comfortable with yourself.”
That’s all we have, the rest is up to you. Here’s to a great Valentine’s Day from all of us at MasterSelf!
