Ways To Keep Your Love Strong – Don’t let commitment freak you out. You’ve just made the huge step of moving in together or getting married. Congratulations! Now, what’s next? The dream of hot sex whenever you want it, love that never dies, and effortlessly splitting the finances 50/50? The possibilities are endless.
Then, reality sets in: You had no idea that your partner was a neat freak. You no longer have time for friends, and you feel like you and your partner don’t know one another anymore. As far a sex, maybe you have it once a month, and that’s if there’s nothing better on T.V.
When you’re angry at your partner, there’s nowhere to hide. You will actually have to talk about your problems.
You realize that the only people who have the perfect relationship are in the movies.
Hopefully, you realize you don’t have to have the perfect relationship. Instead, strive for the good enough relationship.
Here are 10 helpful tips to help keep you sane in your relationship after you take a major life step together:
1. Think before you take another next big step.
For a lot of couples, moving in together just happens. They don’t usually weigh out the pros and cons or make plans in advance. Maybe, it just felt right or it was convenient. No more arguing of where you will stay or having to bring an overnight bag. For some, it may be a test for the future. For others, they just may be trying it out.
Either way, it’s important to have an honest conversation about what moving in means to each of you. If you’re not on the same page and you move in together, you’re inevitably going to have conflict over it.
