Starting a new relationship is both exciting and scary. You’re eager to impress your new partner but exceptionally nervous about how to do it; after all, you don’t want to run this new relationship into the ground before it even has a chance to develop into something good.
Life is very unpredictable, and sometimes we just have to fail in order to succeed. Nobody likes to have their heart broken. But it happens. It is important to figure out the difference between a lesson and a soul mate.
Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the best rules for a new relationship.
1. Behave properly in public.
Everyone has their own level of comfort when it comes to PDAs. You need to establish yours at the beginning of your relationship so you and your partner are on the same page about holding hands and kissing. You should be honest about your preference to ensure you are both comfortable together.
2. Take time to get to know each other alone.
Many couples meet up with other friends during the early stages of the relationship. This can make it feel less awkward and ease the tension, but it will not help you get to know your partner. Choose a day when you will meet that it will only be the two of you together. This will provide you with the perfect time to get to know each other.
3. Give them space.
Equally, no one wants to start a new relationship and have their new partner live in their back pocket. Space is very important to a new relationship, and you need it in order for the relationship to grow. Be sure you don’t get caught up in the excitement and totally suffocate your new love interest.
4. Focus on the present.
In the early stages of the relationship, you need to focus on what you have right now. The future together can wait, mand mentioning it during the early stages can scare your new partner away. Enjoy what you have now and just be happy without questioning their decisions or criticizing them for every gesture they make.
5. Let their friends be your friends.
If your new relationship is going to work out, you’re likely to see more of your new partner’s friends. You do not need to become their best friends, but it is important that you try to get along with them. Remember that your partner’s friends have a lot of influence over your partner.
6. Don’t neglect your own friends.
It is also important to remember that you have your own group of friends; the people who’ve been by your side for many years and have supported you through thick and thin. If the relationship does not work out, they will be the ones you go to for emotional support.
But beware, because they may not be there for you if you simply ignore them simply because you are in a new relationship. Dividing your time can help you keep your passions and interests alive as the relationship develops. The old saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” is very true.
7. Do not keep secrets from each other.
Most people have a few secrets, and it is not necessarily fun to discuss them. However, you must consider which secrets are better off to share with them now. Something such as you are still friends with your ex should be said; it will save an awkward moment if you run into them with your new partner.
Although it’s very easy to get caught up in the excitement of a new relationship, it’s very important you don’t let your excitement and emotions get the best of you. Follow these seven new relationship rules for success to ensure your relationship is off to a happy and healthy start.
