Who better to ask for drama-free relationship advice than one-half of the steadiest couples we know: Claudia Barretto! Claui has been in a relationship with boyfriend Basti Lorenzo for quite a while now so we made sure to get a few tips from her. Here's what she said: 

  1. Be self-aware.

"It's so important to be self-aware—I think we both are. We know how to control our emotions, we understand our emotions and we're very different people but we don't clash. It's actually better for us. It's an advantage for the two of us."

  1. Keep things private.

"I think the best way is to not share too much about your relationship to everyone. It's nice to keep things private because when you share it with other people, they give you opinions that shouldn't really make a difference in your relationship because it's yours.

My friends know things about my relationship but I don't tell them everything. Because there are some things you just have to keep private."

  1. Be your separate people.

"I can say for a fact that I'm good on my own and he's also good on his own. We're separate people, but we like being together. It's important to be your own individual."
