Nurturing a relationship takes plenty of work


A definition of relationship care can include hundreds of things. To nurture a relationship, at a minimum both participants must communicate well and often, spend time with each other in activities they both enjoy, and share hopes, dreams and goals.


Relationship care also includes the willingness to work through difficulties and disagreements, emotional support and validation, and, of course, love, intimacy, romance, and sex.


A psychotherapist on JustAnswer defines relationship care this way:


“Care in which all participants appreciate the importance of their relationships with one another, where individuality and uniqueness are honored, feelings and emotions, value and belief systems are considered as core components of these relationships, where people constantly affect each other and literally build meaning, health and fulfillment in the process.”


Whether you’re worried about your relationship, or just want ideas to nurture it before problems arise, talking things over with a professional can be extremely helpful. If you want an answer to a question without finding a local therapist, or spending hundreds of dollars an hour, the licensed professionals on JustAnswer are available to you day and night, from the comfort of your home.

Don't be shy, get help with a relationship here


The relationship care Experts have answer literally hundreds of thousands of questions, including:


  • How do we stay close after the kids leave home?
  • What should I do when my fiancé drinks too much?
  • Should I break up with my boyfriend because we argue all the time, even though I love his family?
  • How do I handle parents who are completely cold and uninterested in me and my family, including their grandchildren?
  • Why am I so insecure about my relationship when I know he loves me?
  • I live with my dad, and I want to know how to get away and live on my own when he keeps discouraging me?

It can be difficult to explain a relationship problem to an Expert, so it’s often helpful to organize the facts first, and even write them down so that they make sense to you. Phone calls are also available to speak with the Experts if it’s easier for you. The more information the Expert has about the circumstances surrounding your problem, the more helpful the answer will be.
