Firstly, if you are in any relationship, it is not necessary that it may go well. There are usually 4 stages of a relationship, which are further explained in this article.
It’s not necessary that the one you are dating is your soulmate. Life is unpredictable, sometimes it’s hard to find that one special person and sometimes it’s there, right in front of us and we are not aware of it. Relationships are not meant to be perfect, you experience both good and bad from it. Relationship teaches you the lesson of life.
So let’s start with the basics about relationships and it’s stages.
There are usually 4 stages of a relationship !
Based on which you realize that you and your partner are destined to be together for lifetime or not.
Stage 1: Attraction
Attraction phase or the fairy tail phase.
In which you feel good about everything. There will always be a smile on your face. When you are with your partner, you feel like you’re on cloud nine .
Everything seems so romantic. You find your partner to be the best thing ever happened to you. Everything seems to be so perfect about your partner. You adore your partner.
Things you neglect :
- Ignore each other’s flaws.
New relationship is like a new marriage. Everything seems to be perfect and you tend to be in a fairy tale where you are always happy and ignore one another’s flaws. But this could latter affect your relationship.
- Think that things will always remain the same.
Every person has wrapped their life in layers and people tend to open that layer with the passage of time. So things would definitely change with time and it’s okay. But what is not okay is to think that things will remain as happy as now till forever.
- Try to avoid fights.
Same as we avoid flaws we try to avoid fights and arguments. We tend to agree with other person to avoid silly arguments but this could later affect your relationship as your partner feels they are dominant and can always make you agree with them.
- Try to hide your bad habits.
Most men hide their habits of smoking or drinking so as not to give any bad impression. But sooner or later things would eventually come out.
- Hide about the past.
We all have some dark secrets from the past which we don’t want to share. But there are always some loopholes. So it’s better to share rather than hiding as the basis of any relationship is trust. And when you can’t share with your partner how can you build a trust and further a strong relationship.
- Try to be someone else.
