Don’t be so naïve. Don’t be so immature. Don’t be the type of person who believes that all they need to make their relationship work is love. You don’t live in a Hollywood movie. Real life is complicated, and relationships take a lot of work. And if you’re not prepared to handle these harsh truths, then chances are you’re not really ready to be in a committed relationship.
When you first meet a person and become romantically interested in them, you get excited. You imagine what a life with this person is going to be like, and you dream up fantasy scenarios in your head. And when you’re just starting to fall in love with someone, it’s always very fun and exciting. It can be such an exhilarating experience when you allow yourself to open up to them, when you allow yourself to really become vulnerable with someone special in your life. And for that first part, it’s always wonderful. You’re going to have a lot of good times together.
However, when you pass the honeymoon stage, you are going to be forced to confront the reality of the situation. You will come to realize that your relationship needs more than love. If you don’t have these three very important things listed below, your relationship will fail.
Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the top three things your relationship needs to be successful. If you’re missing these things, your relationship will eventually fail.
1. Mutual Trust
You are always going to need to trust your partner if you’re going to make your relationship work. You are never going to have a successful relationship if you and your partner don’t trust each other. You can’t be micromanaging each other’s lives 24/7. You need to trust each other enough to make independent decisions as individuals outside of the relationship.
2. Mutual Respect
At the base of any type of relationship – whether romantic or not – is mutual respect. There’s no chance of your relationship working out if you don’t have mutual respect. A lot of times, things can get heated in your relationship, and during those times, you must always be able to maintain your respect for each other. Are you able to talk and come to an agreement without raising your voices and belittling each other?
3. Shared Values
Your relationship will never last if you and your partner don’t share the same values and principles. You and your partner need to be compatible with each other. And compatibility refers to the ability of two individuals to coexist with one another. It’s perfectly possible for two incompatible people to be in love with each other; however, an incompatible relationship is always likely to head for breakup territory. At the end of the day, love will not be enough to make an incompatible relationship work.
Do you and your partner have these three very important things? If not, can you work on them together, or is it impossible and time to call it quits?
