5 To 1 Tip

John Gottman, Ph.D, noted marriage researcher, suggests successful couples exhibit five positive moments for every negative one. Use this tip to increase your success ratio.

Create a scavenger hunt for your loved one. Write the clues on heart-shaped pieces of paper. Plan a variety of places to leave the notes for your significant other, each leading them to the next clue. At the end of the hunt, which may take place in your house or in different meaningful locations around town, have a nice surprise waiting, such as a sweet picnic or a candlelit dinner, or a dozen roses. You can also make your significant other do something funny like make up a love song about you and sing it in the middle of a crowded street!
