Relationship Traps: How To Avoid It

I had this post on my other blog, but I had to delete that blog because I'm trying to merge its content with this blog. If you want your love life to be successful, here are some relationships don't to keep in mind.

1. Don't try to change your partner. People who say, "If he/she loves me, then he/she will change" will soon find out how destructive this is in a relationship. If you love someone, you have to accept them - flaws and all.

2. Don't reject your partner to protect yourself. Those who feel the need to protect themselves by rejecting someone they love out of fear of being rejected need to sort out personal issues. If they feel they can't hold on to their partner, they have to first learn to accept themselves.

3. Don't expect your partner to be a mind reader. Communication is the lifeblood of relationship. A woman who thinks her man should know her needs is putting unrealistic burdens on him. Know what you want, ask for it clearly, and be ready to accept a yeas or no.

4. Don't think that it's your partner's role to make you happy. Your happiness is your responsibility.

5. Don't accuse your man of refusing to talk. Men will talk when they feel safe under the right circumstances. Don't coerce them into a dialogue if they're not ready.
