Having friendship boundaries is something that a couple should discuss when you first commit to a partnership. There has to be an agreeable compromise regarding how often you spend time with other people outside your relationship. What is acceptable and what isn’t?
Knowing what to say and how to respond to someone on a date can leave many people feeling a little nervous or intimidated. They can feel way out of their element, and what confidence they do have, gets buried under everything else taking place.
The difficulty here is that you are sabotaging your own happiness because you keep people from rejecting you, by rejecting them first.
Today’s post may be about what women are looking for in a partner, but both sexes should make these 5 traits a priority when they are looking for their special person. They are the foundation of a great partnership and will maintain the longevity of a reciprocated love connection for years to come.
We can all be our own worst saboteurs without even realizing that we are the culprit. We are not always going to get along with everyone we date, and it is important to walk away from those people quickly when there isn’t a great connection. Some people talk themselves into sticking around even when their gut is sending out big signals to move on.
The first rule of thumb in any partnership is that you need to respect yourself first if you want to be respected by your partner. If you are always giving in to your partner’s needs and sacrificing your own, you will be living in a very unbalanced relationship. Valuing yourself is so important if you want reciprocated love with someone.
