Ahhhh, you’re in a new relationship and all things seem so wonderful!
You may be feeling those butterflies in your stomach, you laugh at all your partner’s jokes, feel warm and tingly inside.
It is extremely important to communicate and be very clear about your relationship goals.If you are not looking for a long-term relationship or you are ONLY interested in a marriage partner and want to have kids and a family right away, you want to make sure that you are on the same page.I’ve heard countless complaints from couples and singles about how their partner changed over time.Well he “used to” open car doors for me and bring me flowers and all of a sudden one day it stopped.This is the time that you truly feel and believe that you may have met the right one!
Maybe he seems to display all the qualities about what women really want in a man. All new relationships feel great, which is why we call it the “Honeymoon” phase. Your relationship evolves over time and you want to get off on the right foot.
If you are going above and beyond and in essence being “phony” just to impress your partner in the early stages, well you’re only making things difficult on yourself because your new beau actually believes that you are sweet and romantic ALL THE TIME.
And the minute that you start to relax and return to your normal average niceness, it will be noticed immediately.
This is not to say that you can’t spend a great amount of time together if you both agree and genuinely enjoy spending time together.
It just means that you should not dismiss friends and family if they want to spend time with you also.
Your family and friends are important and should not be tossed to the side or “ditched” just because you’re in a new relationship.
