new year's resolutions for the relationship folk

I was inspired by 20 LA Wannabe's dating resolutions for the year 2013, that I thought I would make a few of my own for all of us relationship folk.  Cause you never know when you're one wrong turn away from a BLOW OFF.  So, here are a few things I think we should all resolve to do so that we don't ponder how much better the single life might be when we go to bed at night.

Never fight...in public, in front of friends, while intoxicated, right before bed, or in the car on the way to meet friends.  And that also includes snapping at each other.  Basically, I'm only going to pick fights with the sig other in the morning time.

Be romantic.  I know it sounds cheesy, but a lot of times the whole romance thing falls on the guy's plate.  In 2013, I'm going to be super sentimental and cheesy.  I'm going to write little love notes and hide them in my H-bomb's lunch bag.

More public displays of affection.  And I'm only saying this because I've been called "the least gushy person in the world" by friends.  I've always been the anti-PDA, but a little kissing in public never hurt no one.  Who am I kidding, I still get annoyed when I see people make out in public.  Okay, fine.  A little ass grab in public never hurt no one.

Surrender the technology in 2013.  The Sig Other and I are the worst at being on our phones all the time.  Right now, I'm typing this on my laptop, while Nashville plays on the TV, and he sits om the other couch and scrolls through his phone.  Sure, most of the time we are playing Words with Friends together, but lately, I find myself realizing we are THAT couple that's sitting at a restaurant on our phones.  The only way I can really get it to stop is if I stop doing it myself.

Compromise more.  I'm totally not one of those push over girls that never has an opinion, but most of the time I'm so opinionated, I steam roll the H bomb without even realizing I'm doing it.  In 2013, I'm going to try and let go more and not care so much if we go to a restaurant I'm not feeling or seeing a movie I'm not into or buying a piece of furniture I'm not crazy about.  Plus, the guy has great taste. I mean, he did after all want to be with me. How can I not trust his judgement on everything else? 

What are some of your relationship resolutions?  Comment below!
