When you start dating someone, you are extremely careful because you don’t want to make the same mistakes you made in your previous relationships. You want this relationship to last. It’s good to want it to and strive for it, but at the same time, it’s even more crucial to let things happen and not overthink or overdo it. If you pay attention and follow all the dating and relationship advice given to you, you risk destroying your happy relationship and ending it. You need to be able to distinguish between the advice that needs to go to your head and the advice that you can let go past your ears. We’ve compiled a list of 25 of these tips that you can stop taking seriously without a second thought. Without further ado, let’s check out the article now.
“DON’T BE THE ONE TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE”.
If you’ve had a crush on someone for a while, there’s nothing wrong with asking her out. You can’t keep waiting for her to make the first move. It will make you feel irritated, unsettled and desperate. Have some courage and trust your instincts.
LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH THE SAME HOBBIES”
We’re sure you don’t fall in love with everyone you meet. It is not easy for two people to connect with each other and develop a bond. Imagine how difficult it will be if you already have a list of things you’d like your future partner to like to do in his or her spare time. It’s okay if you both have separate hobbies. This will only allow you to have time to be alone or socialize with others.
“SOUL MATES EXIST”
What exactly are soul mates? And how do you know if someone is or is not your soulmate? The fact is that there is no such thing. Two people meet, they like each other, which turns into love, attention, concern and a strong desire to want that person in your life forever.
“ALWAYS PUT ON MAKEUP BEFORE GOING TO BED.”
It’s never a bad idea to talk and end an argument before going to sleep. It keeps you from being cranky and hermetic the next morning. However, some arguments can wear you down or hurt you so much that you don’t even feel comfortable talking to your partner about it. In this case, just relax and take your time. There’s no rush. If your partner loves you, he or she won’t end the relationship because you didn’t talk to them for a day or two.
“YOU CAN CHANGE HIM/HER”
First of all, no person on this planet is perfect. Everyone has qualities and flaws. When you are truly in love with someone, you love and adore all the good and all the bad in them. Secondly, it’s almost impossible that you’ll ever find someone who looks exactly like the person you thought you’d settle down with. So stop trying to mold your partner into another person. It’s an attempt you’ll never be able to make.
“TIME CAN HEAL ALL WOUNDS”
Not all wounds can be healed by time. If that were the case, then every older couple you come across must be happy and content with their lives. But that is not the case. Is it? Your partner may be making an unforgivable mistake. In this case, you can break up and get on with your life.
“CHILDREN WILL BRING YOU TOGETHER”
If you are in a difficult relationship, the worst thing you can do is bring children into your life. Raising children is no picnic. So until you are both ready and undeniably ready, don’t even think about conceiving a child. It will only make things worse.
“AGE IS NOTHING BUT A NUMBER”
People in this day and age are more tolerant than ever. Therefore, we are not surprised when we see couples with significant age differences giving us major relationship goals. It’s not really a problem if you want to date someone older than you because they seem more mature and understanding. But be prepared to pay the price, because the relationship won’t be as easy as it might have been if she were your age.
“THE BOY HAS TO BE THE ONE TO PAY ALL THE BILLS”.
But why? Why does the guy have to be the one to pay the bills? Why can’t you? You both work, you both make money. Gone are the days when men were the breadwinners and women’s responsibilities were limited to housework. Girls, please, if you don’t want to miss this opportunity, you need to stop being so stingy and start spending some of your own earnings.
“HE WHO EARNS MORE MUST PAY EVERY TIME”
No matter how much money one earns, (with some exceptions), one never feels that it is too much to spend recklessly and lavishly. Everyone loves their hard-earned money and wants to save it. So, even if you are the one who earns the least, always offer to split the bill or pay from time to time.
