My date and I have just made the official “boyfriend girlfriend” thing last week, so I am the last person to go to advice for relationships, and also because I’ve never been in one before.
However, from what I know and what I’ve seen, here is some advice if you’re in or plan to be in a relationship.
1. Get to know each other.
That way, you know if that person is right for you. And get to know them as much as possible so that you don’t get surprised later down the road.
2. Notice the signs.
Sometimes, there are indicators to tell you if the person really likes you and wants to be with you. If you see them, then they are interested. Also, notice the signs that tell you that they just want to have their way with you. That way, you can leave the scene before more trouble comes.
3. Be yourself.
Sometimes you want to impress, but if you do that all the time, the other person won’t know the real you. And if they are only interested in the fake you, don’t even bother.
4. Don’t do everything for the sake of the relationship.
Sometimes, we go over-the-top for a relationship, and then there are mistakes. And other times, we risk ourselves. Do keep the relationship in tact, but do remember to keep ypur individual life in balance as well.
5. Abuse means trouble.
Any signs of abuse, whether is was meant or not, is leading you toward an abusive relationship. That’s why it is important to get out as fast as you can in that situation.
No respect = no trust = no love = no relationship.
7. Don’t get too attached.
Attachment can also lead to dependence on the person. Once that person is gone, you will be left on your own to deal with grief and a broken heart.
