For Couples: 5 Things You Should Not Do In A Relationship

Nothing can be compared to the excitement of a new relationship. Yes, a new relationship's honeymoon time is always great and colorful until you ultimately wake up to reality and discover you've changed. You start to wonder why you're so different. This is not a far-fetched scenario; it is the result of your unintended actions throughout the early stages of your relationship.

Never pretend to enjoy something you don't.

When you're in a new relationship, it's important to always stay loyal to yourself. It doesn't help you or your partner to like something you hate just because your partner enjoys it. So, whether it's a song, an unusual food, or adventure activity, don't claim to like it just to please your spouse or make them think of you in a certain way.

Be bold to ask for your space.

If you need a little time to yourself, ask for it. You don't have to hang out with your partner all the time or engage them in your activities. If you want to spend the day alone, watching your favorite TV show or reading a nice book, go ahead. After all, even if you're in a relationship, you need some time to yourself.

Don’t stop hanging out with your friends.

Now this one’s really important. It's wonderful to have a new partner, but don't forget to keep your old ones close as well. While it may be tempting to spend every waking moment with your new lover, make time for your friends as well. They are, after all, the ones who are always there for you, in good times and bad.

Always speak up.

Do you have something on your mind that you've been wanting to say for days? Inform your partner. Explain how you feel about a certain scenario, event, or concept. You have nothing to lose by talking about how you feel. It's pointless to keep your partner in the dark about events. The more they learn about you at the beginning of your relationship, the better.

Don’t change your appearance.

You don't have to change your hairstyle or anything else. The same may be said for how you dress and apply your makeup. It's important to keep oneself happy at the end of the day; there's no point in changing and being unhappy only to impress someone. Someone who is truly suited for you will appreciate you exactly as you are.
