You don’t have to take part in a cheesy corporate retreat to build teamwork in your relationship. Many couples find working toward the same goals, sharing some common interests, and simply keeping the best interest of their partner in mind is enough to build trust and develop a sense of intimacy, but it takes time to build that kind of rapport with another person. No one comes pre-packaged as a dating expert with all the knowledge required to “make it work.” The simple fact is: people in long-term relationships have a different mindset than people who have been single for long periods of time. The elite matchmakers at Kelleher International have some great tips to transition your thoughts from “me” to “we” and build a solid foundation for your future together.
