Long dating before talk
It is not a time to “hide” things from your partner.
If you have certain habits and regular activities such as smoking, or a regular card night with the boys, or going to Church on Sundays then you want to be honest and upfront and share with your partner things that are important to you and anything that is routine in your life.
The following 5 Essential early relationship tips will help guide and nourish your relationship in the early stages with your new partner.
At any stage, it’s important that you are always yourself.
This is a sure way for your relationship to come to an eventual end, and will be looking for advice on relationship problems. If you are thinking long term, you will have lots of time to impress your partner and give them attention and affection and occasional surprises for the length of the relationship.
This is not the time to pretend to be someone that you’re not just because you don’t want to risk losing this person.
If you are not yourself, you will have a very difficult time pretending to be someone that you’re not for the entirety of the relationship.
Too many people at the early stages make the mistake of dropping everything and being totally “on call” for their other half.
I can tell you that this is NOT a good move nor is it very healthy or attractive.You also do not want to give your partner the guilt trip if they want to spend time with their family and friends. You can’t expect to be invited to every function while you are still getting to know one another, and you can’t be disappointed if they don’t want to meet your family and hang out with your friends just yet.
