For most couples, the first months of a relationship are a breath of wind. Every day, there is something new to learn about your partner, and romance is at its peak.
This wonderful stage of life has the potential to be the best days of your relationship.
The real challenge begins when you must work hard to keep that spark alive and fall in love with your partner after discovering a few reasons to dislike him or her.
Don’t be alarmed if you encounter any difficulties or reservations! Everyone has felt this way at some point in their lives.
It all comes down to getting to know your partner and allowing that person to understand your requirements.
Let’s look at these early problems that couples face in the beginning phase of the relationship.
- Setting boundaries with exes
Boundary issues with ex-partners can arise at various points in a relationship, especially currently with social media and everything. Setting guidelines early and upfront is the best way to approach this. Transparency is essential, don’t give your current partner the impression that you’re hiding something or sneaking around.
- Different approaches to spending money and savings
Money is one of the most common reasons couples fight. Don’t be surprised if it becomes a go-to argument once you’re an established couple and must deal with bills, rent, and other major financial decisions.
A childhood of financial scarcity and indebtedness can cause a person to become overly sparing and determined to save as much as possible. When partnered with someone who had a financially secure childhood, conflict can arise.
- Introducing your partner in your friend circle
Incorporating your new partner into your long-term friend group can be difficult because you want to remain a loyal friend who doesn’t bail on plans to be with bae, but you also want to ensure your new partner has a good time with your friends.
Some people are an acquired taste and trying too hard usually backfires. These things take time, and it’s up to you and your friends to figure out your own dynamic. They are not action figures; you have no control over them.
- When to say ‘I LOVE YOU’
This is another struggle for which there is no perfect solution. Just make sure that when you say you love someone, you truly mean it. Never, ever, ever say it back just to be polite. And don’t say it first because it seems like the natural next step. Declare those words when you truly believe them in your heart.
To make a relationship work, you must put in consistent effort, dedication, devotion, and, of course, love. Those who are determined to hold each other’s hands in every circumstance will be able to keep their boat afloat.
