A new relationship begins with a beautiful hope and comes with many mysterious boxes that intrigue you to learn more.
A new relationship is like exploring the uncovered territory, and feeling excited about the new relationship is pretty obvious. As the saying goes on- a woman invests her first three months of relationship in just exploring the guy. It is also when you both need to set up some boundaries and standards for the relationship.
You could say ‘first-three months’ are an essential part of a relationship.
Things You Need To Know Before Starting A New Relationship
1. Keep the past in the past:
The biggest mistake a woman makes when dating someone new is with bringing her exes fears, concerns, and negative thoughts to the existing relationship.
Not only this, often you compare your current bond with your past relationship. Also, you can’t stop talking about your exes to your present boyfriend. Honestly, keep your thoughts and conversation about the current relationship only. It would help if you weren’t interrogating them on their past, either.
2. Stay connected with friends and family:
I don’t know how to express this enough, but I have made this mistake and trust me, keeping friends sidelined when getting into a new relationship is not at all desirable option. Though all of us adore wrapping around loving arms, ignoring the dear ones and dropping all the usual activities with friends to see your partner is not sound valuable.
One has to set their priorities and needs to give equal time to friends and family. You need not spend the entire day with your partner.
3. Be honest with your partner:
Honesty is the policy of a happy relationship. I ask every girl out there who’s thinking of getting into a relationship. Make sure, to be honest with your thoughts, and you’re conveying your opinions to your partner in the right manner. Because if you don’t be honest with your views, then your relationship will not last.
It’s good to stay honest with your partner from the start of your relationship. Maybe it sounds hard to you, but I know you can do this. Be true to yourself.
4. Go easy with meeting the parents:
Never rush to ask the guy to meet your parents. Once he is ready, you will get to know as “Actions speak louder than words.” Wait, for the day when the guy wishes to express his desire to meet your family, that would be a win-win situation for both of you. The same advice I would like to give guys also is don’t rush for the things take it slow and especially while asking a girl to meet your family.
5. Be open about sex:
Well, it’s great to talk about sex at the beginning of a new relationship. Be transparent with your partner. Few things which you must have to discuss with your partner a) how to go down on you b) what’s your favorite sex position c) do you like to use sex toys or not?
See, sex matters a lot, be it a new relationship or an old one.
6. Try not to decorate reality or brag:
Ladies, bragging can be a huge turnoff. You need not to continually work hard to impress or convey your true heartfelt feelings. Just be yourself, the guy’s like the girl who is more confident and smart. Trust me; it’s worth it.
7. Abstain from being needy:
A bit of jealousy is considered cute and healthy in a relationship. But, putting restrictions or stopping the partner from doing the usual things they were doing before your date is a red flag. One should also avoid constant calling, texting, and making unreasonable demands to see their significant other; this may stress and make the partner peddle back.
8. Acknowledge space:
It’s true when we get into a relationship; we wish to spend all our time- day and night with that person. Though it’s an adorable thing, space is equally important. Otherwise, you feel suffocated and get irritated with each other easily. So, don’t let this happen. Give each other some space as it’ll show them you respect personal time.
9. Discussion about what the relationship is:
I know how much it hurts when you like that person and want to take things further, but the partner looks at it as another casual hookup. That’s why it’s better to talk to each other on the second or third meeting where you’d like this relationship. If the other person only wants something casual (friends with benefits thing), you don’t invest emotions in the relationship.
10. Stay in the moment:
You have just started a relationship. It’s time to learn and discover something new. So, whenever your mind overthinks, remind yourself to stay in the present moment and enjoy the new lovey-dovey relationship.
The sweet relationship things are happening in front of you, so don’t puzzle up your mind.
