Here are some relationships that mistake that everyone is guilty of and that should try to be avoided at all time.
1. Being too clingy
This is a common mistake that all guys and girls make. At least one person in a relationship will be overly clingy. If you know you’re the one that is just too clingy, try to take a step back. No one likes to be overly suffocated in a relationship. Space to breathe is a good thing.
2. Not making time for friends
When you get into a relationship, it’s not all about the both of you. Don’t forget about your friends – from both your side, and his side. If you can balance friends while being in a relationship, then that is pretty good and healthy for you both.
3. Getting serious too fast
Some people tend to try to get serious too fast the moment they get into a relationship. But the real key to making it work is to be able to take your time with it. Just because you’re dating, doesn’t mean you should be planning out your wedding already. Take it easy and go with the flow.
4. Don’t just say it, do it
Now here is a common mistake in all relationships… the blank promises. When we’re trying to impress one another, you tend to say/promise things that give the other person a lot of hope. Then majority of the time, it’s never done because it’s either forgotten or you can’t be bothered. When you say something to your partner, try to stick to it. If you promise her random flowers one day, get her those flowers. Or if you tell him he can have a guys night out, let him have it. Don’t just say it, and pretend you never did.
5. Don’t expect too much
Expectations poison any relationship. When you want someone/something to be a certain way, and it doesn’t go as you planned – then that’s when all the fighting and problems start. You can’t expect everyone to be as perfect as you imagine in your head. Everyone has a flaw, and if you can except it and avoid expectations – then it’s fine.
6. Don’t pick at unnecessary issues
Not every problem is your problem. If you can avoid arguing with your partner, then avoid it. Because if you’re going to find fault in everything your partner does, then you’ll both find it hard to be genuinely happy.
7. Don’t ask too many questions
We know an answer is always good, but try not to grind your partner with questions after questions. If he answers one, leave it that way. No one wants to be questioned about their every move. Unless you smell something fishy (which might also just be in your head) then you can as a few questions to get the answers you want. But limit it.
8. Comparing exes
Now this is something that everyone does. Comparing your partner to your ex and also comparing yourself to your partners ex. But the fact is, you should be concentrating on making yourself go above all those lines.
9. Don’t lie in the beginning
It’s never right to start a relationship on a lie. Relationships should always be 100% honest… that’s the only way you know it’ll last.
10. Don’t date to avoid being single
Are you a serial dater? If you are in relationship after relationship – ask yourself, why? Majority of the time it’s because people want to avoid being single. And, that is completely fine – but at the same time, is that what you really want?
