Please stop trying to couple up your single friends (unless they are asking) and learn valuable lessons that will improve your relationship.
When you're single, you just want to be in a couple. But, once you find your person, something is missing, and that's not your single life. It's all the lessons you learned during living on your own.
It's essential to have different types of friends because we all are a little lost, and we can help each other in various life stages.
Here are some of the best advice you can learn from your single friends, to improve your relationship.
Don't forget your friends
Keeping your close circle of friends will help you keep the part that makes you unique.
There's a reason why your partner fell for you, and one of many reasons is your loyalty to people. If you stop hanging out with your friends and start spending all the time with your other half, it's not just rude. It can backfire unexpectedly.
It's good to have your "me" time
Couples who do everything together are amusing, as well as annoying. Yes, you mean the world to each other, but your work, friends, workouts, belong to you.
Dragging your partner along everywhere can make you codependent or turn exciting into a broken relationship.
Being alone is right for your mind while hanging out with your friends feeds your soul. A partner is the one who will make everything brighter, shinier, and smoother.
Don't compromise your priorities and goals
Relationships should allow you to grow. If you feel restricted, either you're not communicating well, or you're in an unhealthy partnership.
A supportive partner will try their best to make your priorities as vital to them as they are to you. You're building a life together, so it's only to be expected to have someone supportive that wants you to achieve your dreams.
There's no easy way to argue
There are two types of people in relationships: the ones who will start a fight over the smallest things, and the others, who will wait until they explode.
The key to a lasting relationship is in accepting the other person and communicating. If at times, that doesn't work, there is a time and place for a good argument.
It doesn't mean you need to yell and shout: instead, let's say it's a passionate discussion over important issues. You're looking for solutions, not additional problems.
You might want to keep your privacy
You just got together, and you're already sharing Facebook and email passwords? That was not fast. That was stupid.
Complete transparency doesn't exist. You have to learn to trust a person and vice versa. If you're not comfortable with shaving your legs while your partner is showering, don't do it.
There are different kinds of privacy, but the only rule is that you should feel comfortable with the part you're sharing.
The majority of people still lose themselves once they start dating. Your single friends can remind you of all the things which will make you a better partner, and teach you how to be your true self, while in a happy relationship.
