Quality time is more than mere proximity. It’s about focusing all your energy on your mate. Guys watching sports while talking to his mate is not quality time. Unless all of your attention is focused on your mate, even an intimate dinner for two can come and go without a minute of quality time being shared.
Quality conversation is very important in a healthy relationship. It involves sharing experiences, thoughts, feelings and desires in a friendly, uninterrupted context. A good mate will not only listen, but offer advice and respond to assure their mate they are truly listening. Many mates don’t expect you to solve their problems. They need a sympathetic listener.
An important aspect of quality conversation is self-revelation. In order for you to communicate with your mate, you must also be in tune with your inner emotions. It is only when you understand your emotions and inner feelings will you then be able to share quality conversation, and quality time with your mate.
Quality activities are a very important part of quality time. Many mates feel most loved when they spend physical time together, doing activities that they love to do. Spending time together will bring a couple closer, and, in the years to come, will fill up a memory bank that you can reminisce about in the future. Quality time is a love language that is shared by many.
Setting aside focused time with your mate will ensure a happy relationship. Listening leads to understanding.
Love is made by two people, in different kinds of solitude. It can be in a crowd, but in an oblivious crowd. We are all bound by strong emotion, clinging to history, the past and shared culture. Sometimes, a third party will not be able to truly understand what has happened in the relationship. This is also the reason why they can never understand how can a love so strong, can go wrong.
