Wonder why there are so many therapy sessions dedicated to just mending relationships? – Because they are hard. It is human nature to be love and be in a relationship though the meaning and definitions have changed over the years. They also differ in concept from one person to the other, but the bottom line has remained the same, partnering is in our DNA. Maybe that’s why the Amazonians didn’t last nor do the loners make the majority of our population. So why do we face so many problems when we are in a relationship?
There are so many things that men and women find attractive about the opposite sex, and there’s rarely an issue talking about these things, but would you have even thought that there could be some things women find unattractive about men, but don’t go out telling them about it?
When you first started dating, things were awesome. You two clicked right away, had a lot in common, laughed all the time, and were energetic. He didn’t complain about any of your physical issues (you know, the ones you’re constantly focusing too much attention on in private, even though you look amazing), but as the months march on, you might be picking up on some hints that maybe he wants you to lose a few pounds.
If romance wasn’t such a big deal none of us would be so preoccupied with it. It has always been, since our cave days and even though we sometimes forget how important it is for a relationship. Especially at present times when we are more concerned about career than commitment, we tend to ignore the little yearnings. But even the hardcore CEO can be a little romantic at heart and every woman cherishes those little gestures that make them feel special. But they might run into a roadblock when it comes to receiving these gestures from the significant other. Men can be clueless at times even though they are completely dedicated and love you to bits.
Did you ever actually think about the foods you order when you go out? What about on a date? If not, it’s time that you did. After all, your date is thinking about it.
If you don’t you are not alone. In-laws have been a dreaded term for centuries. Though we have no chronicles of it, am sure even the cavemen had major kitchen politics going on, albeit over the fire instead of the dinner table! So don’t worry about it or beat yourself up too much. Look at it this way, if they were all polite and accepting things would have been so dull. So this is just a little drama to spice up things that’s all. Now that’s just me talking because I don’t believe that other people can dictate my happiness. But if you have really landed with a monster-in-law then maybe you really do need help. Whether it’s an overprotective mom, boorish dad, creepy uncle or nasty siblings, they shouldn’t overshadow your relationship.
Are you still hung up on your ex? Do you wish that you could get back together with him? Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night and longing for her to be there next to you?
Ending a relationship isn’t easy for either person and the longer that two people have been together, the more difficult it can be to overcome. Dealing with divorce doesn’t necessarily mean that the breakup will be tougher, but there are certain legal implications that can affect you and your soon to be (or current) ex.
Red flags are generally warnings. They could be found at the beach or a marina and they will tell swimmers and boaters about certain risks that are evident. People can pay attention to them when they want, or they can ignore them at their own peril.
You’ve been dating this guy for over 2 years. During those first months everything was awesome. You couldn’t get enough talking to him on the phone, couldn’t wait for the next date, the next time you could see him, and you drove your girlfriends absolutely crazy talking about him.
Marriage is not easy. No matter what big dreams you may had when you were young or how practical you thought yourself to be, there are bound to be disappointments and heartaches. At times these are too harsh to adjust to but those are extreme circumstances. The course of everyday life you will realize that communication and compromise make the bulwark of a strong relationship. That being said there are some rules attached to these aspects, the compromise cannot be from one party while the other takes advantage forever. You cannot expect things to be right or go as they are without some positive changes.
