Finding out what a person is really made of and how they deal with various obstacles and situations can only happen over a prolonged length of time.
“I can’t ever imagine us arguing, he is the most amazing guy ever.” Sure!
I remember naively thinking things like that in my early twenties, but that’s another story.
How to tell if you’re wasting time in your relationship.
So you’re cruising along in an amicable relationship, and you’re wondering if, at 6 months or a year into it, your man has long-term relationship potential.
Life isn’t so serious all the time – sometimes escapism is necessary. Do you really listen to each other, or are you both simply concerned with being “right.” Do you respect each other’s feelings and differences in a disagreement, or are you hurtful and mean? These are all things you need to ask yourself, and be honest with the answers.
Both partners must always respect each other, and be kind even when you don’t agree. For some, the honeymoon stage lasts well into 6 months to a year, and being inseparable is adorable…at first.
No one should ever feel like they should get their needs met elsewhere, or that their partner doesn’t desire them anymore. Some couples simply forget how to have fun after settling into a relationship.
I don’t care how busy your schedule is, it’s worth it to squeeze in a night of passion to keep your Hot coupledom in check! Remember all those fun dates you used to have in the beginning? If you and your partner never argue, then you haven’t been dating long enough.
Disagreements are inevitable the longer you stay together, but how you argue can make all of the difference in whether or not your relationship is built to last. But if you don’t have any interests, hobbies or other friends outside of each other, then your relationship could crash and burn.
