According to Gary Chapman the author of five love languages”A central aspect of quality time is togetherness, I don’t mean proximity… Togetherness, has to do with focused attention” you and your partner been in the same room talking while one of you is busy reading a book/magazine doesn’t mean you are spending quality time together.

  • Maintain eye contact when your partner is talking,it helps to keep your mind from wandering.
  • Listen and don’t be busy doing other things at the same time {like reading, watching TV, operating your cell phone etc.}
  • Don’t interrupt; I know how difficult it is not to interrupt. Please allow your partner to finish before you start talking.
  • Don’t give advice unless you are asked to.
  • Don’t judge your partner immediately or stop him/her half way to correct them,especially when you stop your partner just to correct his/her grammatical errors.

The same thing also applies if you are going on a date with your partner. Don’t choose a noisy place. Quality time is all about having fun together. I know from experience how hard it is for a human being to sit at one place and concentrate on one thing but this is a sacrifice you must be willing to do in other to have a successful relationship. Be patient with your partner, nobody is  perfect. If you can take your time to sit down with your partner and talk intimately then you are really committed to the relationship.Don’t forget that nothing kills a relationship faster than lack of communication.
