7 early relationship mistakes to avoid
There’s such a thing called TMI too early in a relationship.
You’ve finally found a person who you can see a long future with, you are no longer hung up on your ex and excited to see how fun this new relationship is going to be. While beginning of a new relationship is super fun, it is also easy to commit mistakes that can throw your partner off or spell trouble for the longevity of the relationship. Certain things (let’s call them mistakes) that you do early on in a relationship can disengage your partner from you or sabotage the relationship.
We understand that being in a healthy relationship means we have to give it all and your partner should know everything about you. But hold on: spilling too much too early in a relationship is not a great. Also, ignoring red flags, moving too fast, meeting your partner’s friends too early, relying on physical attraction too much can all spell doom. Here’s some common mistakes to avoid early in the relationship.
Spilling TMI too soon
It feels great to share everything with the person you like, but they do not need to know right away. There are certain things that you shouldn’t blabber about in the first few months – stuff like your relationship with your family, why is your sister not married yet and other serious stuff.
Trying way too hard
Putting effort into a relationship is a great way to show that you are invested in the relationship. But trying hard to plan dates, always look great, always say yes to dates, never arguing to avoid conflict won’t play well in the future. You want them to like you as you are.
Ready to post on social media
Soft launching your new relationship is cool. Talk it out before you do a face reveal of your partner on social media. Overusing social media to broadcast your relationship or liking every photo on their feed will do no good.
Getting offended if your partner has plans without you
Like seriously, don’t. You are starting out on a new relationship. Expecting your partner to show effort in the relationship by ignoring his life is never going to spell out good for the relationship.
Showing signs of mistrust
Trust is something that is build on gradually in a relationship. Sending texts demanding why you didn’t get a reply at 4 AM is a sign of mistrust. And more than that, it kinda makes you look insecure, desperate and crazy.
Ignoring grounds of major disagreement
If the core values in a relationship don’t match, how do you think the relationship is going to thrive? Ignoring major differences about important matters just for passion will create more disagreements in the future.
