Who decides what’s good or bad in your relationships? Especially when it’s your relationship and only you and your partners know exactly what’s going on between your love life.
Yet society tries to claim to know it all, thinking what’s best and trying possible ways to issue rules on what’s good for relationships and what you shouldn’t do.
You know what lover boy? It’s only you and your partner to know what’s good for you and what makes it stronger.
Here we bring you some of the basic things you should follow and before you know, you are in a forever everlasting relationship;
Do connect every day
When you come home and you behold your loved one, stop what you are doing. Give them a hug, look into their eyes and connect. If even for one moment before you go back to peeling potatoes or responding to a text. Make that a ritual no matter what’s happening in your life.
Sleeping in separate beds
Psychologists admit that if you’re sleeping in separate beds this is a sign that your relationships are in trouble. But when the decision is mutual and for whatever reason you both are happier sleeping in separate beds – then why not? There’s nothing wrong with it and it shouldn’t be a taboo.
Texting all the time
While messaging definitely helps people stay in touch, it can also become a little bit too much. Isn’t it better to wait till you have that special quality time together to discuss everything you want to discuss in private, face to face? Of course, texting can be a pretty romantic part of your relationships, but it is also fine if you and your partner don’t want to distract each other too much during the day. Whatever works for you!
Spend time without your girlfriend
Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you have to be together all the time. In fact, it’s best if you go out with your dudes and just have fun without your loved one. After all, you are two individuals and don’t have to be present in each other’s lives 24/7.
Talk about exes
Things can easily go south when you start talking about yours or her exes, but it can also be a truly revealing process. Those people were part of your lives and made you who you are today, and that’s a good thing.
Talking about exes shouldn’t be a taboo as it shows that you are over those relationships and can easily talk about them.
Do know when to keep your thoughts to yourself
Our minds are chock full of judgements, comparisons and petty criticisms of others. But how important are most of those thoughts that pass through our head? Most of this internal dialogue doesn’t have to see the light of day.
Talk about money
It’s impossible to be together and avoid the financial topic; after all, once you start sharing your life with another person, you also start sharing money, one way or another. Nevertheless, talking about financial issues and money in general became a taboo and a huge source of stress for many couples. But how are you willing to plan your life together if you don’t talk about money? You have to spill everything that’s on your mind!
