The beginning of any relationship is all butterflies and cookies. This is what most people refer to it as the ‘honeymoon phase. Even if both the partners are on the same page about their feelings, there are some ways to enhance your relationship.
It is always a good practice not to ignore the red flags in your new and explosive romance. Here are the best and the worst ways to enter a relationship.
Make your dates fun
You can add a great deal of variety to your dates to understand how your partner navigates different situations. Also, monotony leads to the most breakups. So, try not to get stuck in a rut, get more out of the house with your partner, and enjoy great dates in different settings.
Do not blow up their phone
Save your sweet or sob stories for the in-person dates and stop yourself from dialing their number. You do not always have to be the first person to call or text, or initiating plans. Let your partner make an effort to reach out to you.
Sexual health conversations
Find a comfortable way of having an honest conversation about each others’ sexual health before approaching intimacy. You will be able to enjoy it with a little more confidence. Be comfortable and talk freely about what you like or don’t enjoy
Look out for red flags
If your new love is critical of you, flaky, or treats others poorly, they are probably not worth investing your feelings and time into. Such relationships always have a terrible outcome, and seeing only the best in someone is sometimes one of the silliest of the things one can possibly do. Rather than witnessing the devastating demise of your relationship later, it is better to get out before you are knee-deep.
The way you treat yourself sets an example to how your partner must treat you. Set your boundaries and adhere to them. Carry your principles and authenticity close to yourself, even if it requires canceling or rescheduling a date to suit your priorities.
Communicate directly and be considerate when dealing with your partner without insulting, yelling, or judging. It is silly to expect that someone holds the capacity to read your mind. Talk about yourself to uncomplicate the situations, and remember to choose your battles wisely.
It is important to understand that every relationship is unique, and people come with their own sets of emotional baggage. When you find the right partner, mutual respect, trust, and honest will set you off on the path to a healthy relationship.
