Do you have butterflies on your stomach when you start a new loving relationship? Everything is new in the beginning and we don’t want to screw it all up. That said, here are things you should expect from a new relationship and tips on how to manage it.
The “honeymoon stage” all couples have at the beginning of the relationship is as meaningful as the upcoming moments. Undoubtedly, one of the best periods a couple is sharing together as it comes the feeling of falling in love with each other.
Because you like each other so much and don’t want to sabotage this new relationship, there are some things you can do and expect when starting.
On the first few dates, we tend to try and impress the other person and show them our best qualities, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Eventually, your partner will see some of your other characteristics, so there’s no need to wear a mask. It’s better, to be honest from the get-go rather than being both frustrated with something else later on.
Actions Are More Valuable Than Words
Reading actions are way more important than words. For instance, the person can say whatever they wish and promise many things, but if their actions don’t correspond to what they’re saying, you know which one of these two you should trust.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Vulnerability
Most people are afraid to share and show their vulnerability and are afraid of being judged or hurt by the other person. In fact, being vulnerable shows how much you care, that you are courageous, and you open doors to build trust between you two.
Don’t Give Up Your Alone Time
We know, when we’re in love, especially at the beginning of the relationship, we want to spend as much time as we can with our partner. Putting your partner as a priority in your life isn’t always a good thing. Keep yourself living your life as you were doing before starting the relationship and honor your plans with others.
Avoid comparing your current partner with previous relationships. People are different and unique, that’s why you chose to be in this new relationship. It isn’t fair for you and for them to keep making comparisons, which can especially hurt them.
