Relationships are hard work, but they are also very rewarding. I’ve been in three long-term relationships and have been lucky enough to see all three of them through to the end. There’s no doubt that dating someone for an extended period of time is challenging, but it also has its rewards as well. Here are some things you can do as part of your relationship so that it doesn’t turn into one big fight:
1. Not being patient enough
The most important thing you can do is be patient. Patience is a virtue, and it takes time to get to know someone before you can trust them completely. Give the relationship time to develop, but don’t give up on it too soon if things aren’t working out as expected. Relationships take work—they’re not a sprint; they’re a marathon! And some relationships just aren’t meant to last forever (like maybe yours).
When in doubt about whether or not your relationship has reached its endpoint, ask yourself if there’s anything left for both of you after all this time together: Willingness? Chemistry? Mutual attraction? Do those factors still exist between the two of you? If not…then maybe now would be an appropriate moment for ending things amicably instead of dragging them out until everything falls apart at once because we didn’t know how long our love affair was supposed to last anyway!
2. Comparing to past relationships
When it comes to comparing your current relationship to past relationships, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First and foremost, don’t compare your current relationship with anyone else’s. If you’re comparing yourself and your partner against other couples that are happy together, then chances are good that there’s something wrong with their situation—or at least something that could benefit from some attention.
The same goes for comparing your friends’ relationships—especially if they’ve been together for years or even decades! You might be finding reasons why one of them is better than another because of who she is as a person (which shouldn’t matter), but when we compare ourselves against others like this, we’re making assumptions about ourselves based on someone else’s life experiences instead of letting go of those feelings so they can be resolved once again through communication alone.”
3. Not setting boundaries
One of the most important things you can do in any relationship is to set boundaries. What are boundaries? Boundaries are rules and guidelines that help your partner know how they should treat you, as well as what they shouldn’t do.
The best way to understand boundaries is by thinking about how they work with friends or family members. For example:
* I don’t want my friend’s parents treating me like their child when they come over (this would be considered an invasion of privacy).
* My brother doesn’t get too physical with me when we’re around other people because he knows I’m uncomfortable with it (this would not be appropriate behavior).
When setting these types of boundaries, make sure it’s clear what type of behavior will not be tolerated—for example, telling someone “no” may sound harsh but isn’t necessarily something that needs explaining further; however if your partner repeatedly asks for something from you without listening first then this could become abusive behavior and needs addressing before things escalate into violence or abuse (physical or emotional).
4. Not trusting the other person
The second most important thing you can do to build trust in your relationship is not trust the other person.
Trust is a key component of any healthy relationship and it’s definitely something that needs building up over time, but if you don’t trust your partner, then there will be no happiness for either of you.
So how does this relate to dating? Well, let’s say that when we meet someone new for the first time and start talking about our lives, they ask us some questions like: “Do you have any siblings? How old were they when their parents got divorced? Do they live close by or far away?” These kinds of questions may seem insignificant at first but over time these details will add up until they create an image in our mind about who this person really is (or isn’t).
5. Not having a life of your own
You shouldn’t have a life of your own, but you should have one. Your partner is an important part of your life and needs to be involved in some of the things you do on your own. If you don’t want him or her around when it comes time for dinner, go out with friends or stay in instead; if he or she doesn’t want to watch sports games with you, let him/her know before they come over so there aren’t any surprises later on!
Not having a life of your own means being able to see other people without having any responsibilities towards them (like feeding them). This can make dating much easier because it gives both parties more freedom within their relationship—and helps avoid misunderstandings between partners too often caused by a lack of communication about what each person wants out there in “the real world.”
6. Being too clingy
* Don’t smother the other person.
* Don’t be a jealous person.
* Let your partner go out with friends, but don’t expect them to do the same for you—that’s not fair!
* Remember that dating isn’t just about finding someone who likes everything you like (though if it were, wouldn’t that be easy?). It’s also about learning how to compromise and make decisions together, so keep an open mind about what your partner thinks is best for both of you.
7. Making the relationship all about sex and not enough about intimacy
Sex is a big part of a relationship, but it shouldn’t be the only thing.
Sex is about intimacy and pleasure, not just one or the other. You can have sex with someone you’re dating without having anything else in common with them (and vice versa). If you want to make sure that your sex life has enough room for both intimacy and pleasure, ask yourself how much time you spend talking or touching each other during the day outside of bedtime sexual activity. If you’ve been spending five hours sitting next to each other at work every day talking about everything except what happened when we went home last night—then maybe those conversations aren’t helping us grow closer!
8. Relationships are hard work, but they are also very rewarding.
Relationships are hard work, but they are also very rewarding. If you want to have a healthy relationship with someone, then it’s important that you’re willing to put in the effort and time. This can be difficult when things don’t go your way or if there are misunderstandings between the two of you. But if both parties are committed to working out their issues together then they will eventually come around and make things work out for them in the end!
Relationships are hard work, but they are also very rewarding. It’s important to have boundaries in place and make sure that you’re not being too clingy or needy. If you feel like this is happening with someone else then it might be time for some counseling or even take a break from dating for a while if possible.
