If you can create an arsenal of words to describe a loving relationship, then you can build a healthy environment where love can thrive. Verbalizing and writing expectations of love will force you to remember important details long after the "honeymoon" phase of a relationship has ended. Describing a loving relationship also may help to prevent you from making major relationship errors such as confusing lust with love, being inconsiderate and focusing on the negative.
Write a letter detailing at least five necessary aspects of a love relationship: commitment, communication, romance, sexuality and empathy. Remind readers that couples need to openly confess their love and dedication for one another. They must create a bond by sharing petty concerns and deep dreams. Keep the pheromones pumping by infusing the relationship with physical and emotional passion by having date nights. Write the importance of understanding each other's points-of-view.
Type a poem filled with the qualities of a loving relationship; verify the qualities you list are healthy and conducive to emotional growth and a healthy relationship. Use descriptive words like: fidelity, allegiance, dedication, respect, devotion, honesty and contentment.
Use descriptive songs that showcase the positive aspects of a loving relationship. Consider songs that bypass the initial euphoria of love and focus instead on the long term aspects on which healthy, loving relationships are built like: "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men, "When a Man Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge and "I Will be Here," by Steven Curtis Chapman. Eric Clapton's song "Wonderful Tonight" is a touches directly on the unselfishness of love in the third stanza when he sings, "And the wonder of it all Is that you just don't realize how much I love you." With those lines, Clapton conveys the quiet moments in a relationship which show how much you love someone.
