Whether it’s where you had your first date, or where you two just love hanging out on the weekends – every couple should have that one spot where they can go when life seems overwhelming to hash out reality together.

9. Teamwork

Speaking of together…you cannot both push. Someone has to pull. It’s all about being part of a dynamic duo.

8. Attraction

Looks aren’t everything, but let’s be honest here. They are something. So when you feel like you’re getting comfortable, remember that sometimes it’s still nice and appreciated to dress up for one another.

7. Adaptability

No one should change who they are when they get serious with someone, but both should be open to at least trying new things their partner is into.

6. Humor

I’m sorry but if the person you’re dating cannot make you laugh or doesn’t get your sense of humor – DONE.

5. Attentiveness

We live in a time when people are constantly glued to their phones and whatnot. Cut that shit out when you two are together. It’s fine if you’re just hanging out at home, but on a date you should be focused on what one another is saying, not what a Kardashian is tweeting.

4. Communication

Which leads us to this. Keeping things in with only let them fester into negativity. When there’s a problem, make sure to talk it out. Keep those lines open.

3. Sex

This is self-explanatory but for those living like nuns…sex is great and the sex between you and your partner should be more than that.

2. Respect

Joking around with one another is one thing, but dating someone should not be a constant Comedy Central Roast.

1. Honesty
