As someone who is in a new relationship, these are a few guidelines that have made navigating new waters successful and exciting.
1. Let the past stay in the past. The only past I care about is where he’s lived, traveled, experienced. The number of partners he’s had, serious relationships, and co-habitations are obsolete. Those all are over and for a reason. He’s with me now and being happy together is all that matters.
2. Guilt trips don’t exist when you communicate. Use your words, folks. If something is upsetting, bothersome, worrisome, you gotta spit it out. If you don’t talk it out, you’ll act it out. You know what that behavior looks like for you: guilt trips, silent treatments, berating, etc. None of those solutions are greater than communication.
3. Get a Hobby! Independence and having hobbies you’re passionate about are a turn on. It shows you have a life outside of your relationship. You occupy your time with leisure pursuits that bring you joy and satisfaction instead of waiting for your other half to entertain you. Also, it gives you both an opportunity to teach and learn each others’ passions.
Everyone’s got rules. What do you think of hers? What are yours?
#1 For the win. I hate when certain people ask about my past, because it’s never just a question.
