Having a fight with your loved one isn't fun. It can cause a lot of stress and make you wonder if things can ever get back to the way that they were. However, sometimes making up advances your relationship into new and maybe even better territory. So, how do you start the process of making up after a fight? The answer may be different for everyone, but here are a few suggestions.

1. Schedule a time to talk with your partner.

Find a time where the two of you both have time to communicate without any interruptions. This can help you keep the focus on the conversation and avoid distractions.

2. Talk about your feelings.

Tell your partner how you felt about the situation and ask him or her about his or her feelings. Try to find out why you both felt that way, and if there is any way you two can find common ground.

3. Apologize.

Apologize if you said or did anything hurtful to your significant other and give him or her the chance to apologize as well.

4. Be understanding.

Try to see why your partner might feel the way that he or she does by putting yourself in his or her shoes.

5. Mend the differences.

Move forward with a plan that will benefit the both of you and allow you to move forward.

Fighting is not a fun thing in a relationship, but it is a reality. Therefore, making up should be a reality as well. So, next time you are in a fight with your significant other, try to communicate with your partner and understand his or her point-of-view, and then, find some common ground.
