Have you just changed your relationship status from being single to in a relationship? Now, being in a relationship is a little bit tricky- exciting yet terrifying. First, be proud for taking the courage to welcome that person into your life. Now, to keep your journey as a couple worthwhile, there are some things you need to keep in mind. Here are some relationship advice and tips for new couples like you. Take things slowly. Speaking of taking things slow, you might not want to be too eager to go to bed together. Others would say that being sexually active as well as being sexually compatible are important in a relationship, and they are right.
However, note that it comes with big responsibilities. Instead of being wild and impulsive, try to talk about the matter. Both of you should be ready whatever the consequences of your actions will be. Both of you should be mature enough when you handle things like this. Besides, you can keep your level of intimacy without doing the thing right away. Lust: 12 Differences You Should Know.
Set your expectations. What do you expect from this relationship? What do you expect from your partner? What are your needs? What do you want and not want your partner to do? Let your partner know about your expectations, so you can immediately talk about some compromises.
Remember that your partner is a different person. He or she is your now, so live in the present. Otherwise, you should have just stayed with your ex or not commit yourself to a new relationship. Communication is key. One of the most effective ways to build a strong relationship is to keep open communication.
Hence, as new couples, make it a habit to open up to each other. If there are specific boundaries to be set, your partner should know. Staying open to each other will not only fix problems right away but will also address any potential problems in the relationship.
Learn from each other. Listen to each other. Your partner may have some values different from yours, but take the time to hear his or her thoughts. Respect his or her own principles in life. Remember that a good relationship is a give and take between the two of you. Hence, allow the relationship to grow by learning from each other. You must have seen something in him or her. However, know that you are not having a relationship with a perfect person. As a partner, give your boyfriend or girlfriend pieces of advice.
Your partner should be able to keep his or her individuality even though he or she is now with you. Your time may now be divided, but the key is balance. Also, your friends might have even played a big role in your love story, so treasure your friends. Be grateful to them. Value and learn from your fights. There will come a time that all the butterflies in the stomach will go away. You will have misunderstandings. You will have fights. You will even cry. However, know that these fights are necessary for your relationship to step up.
These fights, no matter how small they are, will actually strengthen the foundation of your relationship. Rather, learn from those fights.
Take note of the things that will make your partner get mad. Be patient with each other. Because you are still trying to adjust to each other, learn to be more patient. It must not have been easy for him or her to finally decide to commit to a relationship after being single for years. You must be lucky for the opportunity to make your partner believe in love again. Hence, be patient. Understand where your partner is coming from, and be a support system. Notice the little things. You may be longtime friends before you became a couple, but being in a relationship is totally different.
You may say you know your partner already, but you can still be wrong. Hence, pay attention to little things that your partner does. What movie does he or she like? Does your partner like surprises? What annoys your partner the most? What makes him or her feel giddy? Take them into consideration whenever you want to throw your partner a surprise. These sweet little things and gestures will just add spice to the relationship. Be yourself.
For the relationship to grow, you need to be yourself. Be proud of what and who you are. Love yourself. Your partner might just love you more if you are being you. Keep doing your hobbies. You may be enjoying your time with your partner, but you still need to spend some time for yourself. Continue writing. Find some time to still play your favorite video game. Be a cosplayer. Your life is not just about you and your partner, so keep doing the things that you love.
You can be clingy but not too clingy. You can be jealous but not too jealous that it would make your partner feel stifled in the relationship. Be grateful because he or she decided to make you a part of his or her life. Know your place. Focus on today, not tomorrow. Try new things together. Always look for something new to do with your partner. Plan your weekend getaways. Go to the gym together. Visit museums. Learn to play a new instrument together. Keep doing new things together to spice up your relationship.
Remember that many people have been wanting and waiting for that one person to come into their life. Take care of your relationship. Believe in yourself. Believe in your partner. Believe in your love for each other. Thank you so much for these tips! The works of Sheila Wray Gregoire around this book would be a great place to start.
