★Be friends first before dating.
★Sometimes “thank you,” “I’m sorry,” “I messed up” or “let me know what you think” is more important than “I love you.”
★Don’t be too possessive. Give them space to breathe. Don’t choke them.
★Your personal dreams and developments should always come first before the relationship. Don’t stop working on yourself.
★Never discard your friends for your partner constantly. You’ll end up with no friends once your partner leaves and you’ll have no one to turn to.
★A man who loves you, and I mean really loves you, will give you a title and will profess it publicly. “She is my wife/my girlfriend.” If he doesn’t introduce you to his parents and his closest friends, he is not your man.
★Don’t stay in an abusive or unhealthy marriage for the sake of your children. Plan everything out thoroughly and take your kids with you to a safe home where you can rebuild your family and put things in order.
★Loving someone is a risk, it may or may not work out. Don’t beat yourself up when it doesn’t work out as you planned. There is a lesson in every situation, embrace it and learn.
★Have a separate life beside your partner. Have a social life. Have an office life. Have a personal life like any classes, yoga, going out, sport activities etc.
★Never compare your partner with anyone. If you want him to do anything, convey but don’t compare. Comparison will make him feel negative, as if he is good for nothing. This will make the negativity flow in your relationship.
★View your relationship as a project, something that needs to get worked on overtime to make it perfect later. Never give up on working on it as long as it’s mutual.
