6. They’re Kind To Each Other
“By far, simply being kind goes a long way,” Boice says. “It’s important to be kind to your partner. Home should be your refuge from mean, petty people out there.” When you’re kind to each other, you’re bringing positive energy into your relationship. It’s the type of energy you need to be flirty and keep crushing on each other. It’s hard to crush on someone when they’re cranky, rude, and bring out the worst in you.
7. They See The Bigger Picture
“When a couple focuses on the long-term goal, they understand that any obstacles they face are just temporary,” Myles Scott, dating and relationship coach, tells Bustle. Couples who keep crushing on each other long-term know that they can get through anything life throws at them because they’re a team.
Making it to a decade is a feat in itself. It really does take work to get there. If you’re willing to put in the effort to nurture your relationship, you and your partner might still be crushing on each other after 10 years.
