4) Life is Not A Movie
See above. People are real and flawed and emotional, and no matter how many romantic films you watch, the reality is never going to be like that. Ever.
The scariest part of a relationship is that nothing is ever going to go the way you thought (and hoped) it would. But that’s also part of the fun!
5) You Can Only Get What You Give
Do you want to be with someone who is going to treat you well? Then, treat them well too. If you want your partner to cook for you, then you should cook for them as well. If you want an honest partner, be honest too. I know that things aren’t always so equal. But they should be, right?
6) Things Don’t Turn Out How You Planned
You cannot plan everything in your life. The same applies for relationships. You might feel you have the best relationship in the world, but what happens if someone moves in another place? Not everything is under your control, so you should rest and enjoy each moment while it lasts.
Things are going to go wrong from time to time, and unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about it. So, hold on to your partner and enjoy the ride as much as you can.
7) Say what You Mean, Mean What You Say
If you find yourself angry at your partner, you need to speak up. Your actions speak louder than your words, so try to show your partner how you feel.
Don’t assume anybody knows how you feel about them. Being honest and direct can save your relationship.
