Thank you for clicking on this article. Everyone has a different perception of love. Some say it is easy to fall in love and others think otherwise. What do you think? We make numerous of mistakes when it comes to this word “love”.
I have gathered some tips to avoid the following mistakes in your relationship.
1. Quick decision about love
Love is a gradual process. Don’t be pressured to fall in love so quickly because all your mates are getting married and you are all alone. Take time to know yourself. Never say that you are 32 years old and you know everything about yourself. There is still more you don’t know and you have to figure that out. Sometimes others claim to fall in love so they can easily forget about their ex, without getting to know the person you want to give your heart to.
2. Sex is not an option:
To my ladies, if a guy out there says that “you should sleep with him, just to prove your love for him”, show him the door because he is not worth being with. There are different ways one can prove their love for their partners without having to involve sex. Who knows maybe he wants to satisfy his dire need for sex and he isn’t looking for someone to settle with. Don’t assume that as time goes on, he would understand you are not interested and would stop. A hungry man would do anything to get his hands on what he wants.
3. Love should be reciprocated:
Never force yourself to be with someone who doesn’t see your worth and is not interested in you. Under no circumstance should you tolerate any disrespect because you love your partner more than he or she loves you. Know your stand and when to leave. You deserve much more than what you are settling for. Don’t enslave yourself in a relationship saying that at the end everything would be alright, when the signs prove otherwise.
4. Don’t mix these two:
Pride and love do not go hand in hand. Never lose someone you love over your pride; instead lose your pride over someone you love. Communicate your feelings and do not think you are above any topic. Talk about anything and clear your mind. Don’t be very difficult and stubborn to ask for forgiveness and to forgive. Make peace with your partner in your relationship
5. Don’t involve any third party:
This is different with a situation when things escalate and you need older people to intervene. When you both are having problems, solve it among you two and identify the points that went wrong or seek an advice of a specialist. My friend was in a weird situation, where she had to be a third party with a couple, because she was a friend to the guy and was always there to comfort him. At the end, she understood the guy better and began to grow fond of him. The girl was very much aware because she would always involve her to talk to him, instead of clearing this up between them.
Thank you for scrolling. Hope these tips helps.
