These relationship mistake will rip through a relationship like a F5 Tornado.
1. The Boo-Boo: You take your partner for granted
The Problem: Date night used to be special.–now is just the act of ordering takeout and watching reruns of sitcoms on tv. The last time either of you brought flowers, candy etc, was because the one was mad for something you did. You stop calling frequently, etc.You figured they would always be there for you, but in all honestly they left the building a long time ago.
The Solution: Let him or her know you appreciate them. It’s the subtle things that matter. Just stare at them and make nice comments. Show affection, with simple hugs, arm drapes. Dress up nicely for them for know reason. Make the dates feel special again.
2. The Boo-Boo: You judge your partner’s family and friends
The Problem: You have spoken the bad about the love one. :Your’ mom a little odd” “Your friend smells bad” “Your dad tells the same stories over and over” etc.. Even all of these things could be true, and funny, your partner isn’t laughing
The Solution: Always remember blood is thicker and water. There are certain lines that well you just don’t cross. Just hold your tongue and smile. It’ll save you trouble in the long run. Now if your partner brings up a complaint, feel free to take a few shots, but keep it clean.
3. The Boo-Boo:You have trouble finding time for each other
The Problem: Working late, hitting the gym, volunteering with little kids, class, homework, — whatever the reason, what it comes down to, matter of the fact is that you are not spending time with each other.
The Solution: It doesn’t have to be quality time, just spend time. Sometime it’s the casual moments that matter the most sometimes. Meet for lunch, invite your partner to join you on activities; gym, Barnes and Nobles, work on things together etc. Going to bed late one hour later once a week, could be the saving hour of a relationship..1 hour.
Just thought I’d share.. sigh..
