Fighting is normal in a relationship. You have two distinct personalities which will not always agree or get along. Compromise is key to handling problems without destroying your relationship. Make-up sex allows a couple to bond by closing the distance caused by fighting. The energy and adrenaline it takes to fight, can actually lead to arousal. You can’t stay angry with your man if he just made sweet love to you. Make-up sex is exciting, but it doesn’t resolve any underlying issues between couples. It’s just a temporary fix.
In relationships where couples never fight, one of them are holding back their true feelings in order to please the other person. That person would rather keep quiet to keep the peace in order to avoid conflict altogether. Somewhere down the line, resentment will build up. This is not a healthy relationship. Both parties must be able to communicate to resolve problems in their relationship. When there are domestic abuse issues, it’s time to get out of the relationship and seek protection.
Couples will have misunderstandings, but as long as you can argue in a respectful manner and are able to let the power struggle end, and you can meet somewhere in the middle, fighting is a normal part of a relationship. Tackle the problem, not the person. There’s no better way to say you’re sorry, than make-up sex. LOL
When you’re in a relationship with a man who has a child, sometimes you can be subjected to “baby mama” drama. If your relationship is new, you should avoid spending time with your man when he has his child present. Here are a few tips on how to handle the drama if you’re in a serious, committed relationship or marriage:
- Stay out of it and let the baby daddy handle all of the drama.
- Be careful not to trash talk the baby mama in front of the child.
- Follow the routine the parents set for the child, and don’t change anything.
- All decisions regarding the child should be made by the parents only.
- Remember a child’s loyalty will always be to their parents, not you.
If a baby mama still has feelings for her ex and she hasn’t moved on, she may have a problem accepting another woman being apart of her ex’s life as well as her child’s life. Usually it’s jealousy that will cause the drama between all of you. The child is often used as a pawn to get back at the other parent, but in reality it’s the child that suffers the most.
If you decide to stay in the relationship and deal with the baby mama drama, just know that it won’t be easy but if your love is strong, your relationship will survive. Remember, the motive of the baby mama may just be to ruin your relationship with her ex. Remain supportive and united and don’t let her know she is getting under your skin, or she will push harder. Try to get along with her if possible because she will be part of your lives for many years to come. Usually once she sees you aren’t going anywhere, she will often end the drama and accept that the three of you must coexist for the sake of the child.
Being too available for a man is a big mistake that many women make early on in their relationship. It can lead to being taken for granted and you may become his back-up plan. Some men will see a woman who waits for his call and is always available as being needy or desperate. It’s not an attractive trait to a man. It’s best not to always respond immediately to his text messages or phone calls. You may appear to be waiting with the phone in your lap.
Having your own friends and interests and having an active life aside from a man will make you more interesting, less predictable and will keep his attention. Don’t put your plans with friends on hold, hoping to hear from a man. Never cancel your plans for a man who calls at the last-minute. Pretend to be busy, even if you aren’t. (LOL) It’s best to let a man know he has to confirm plans with you in advance, or you may not be available. After all, you do have a life!
Every once in a while you meet a man whom you are physically attracted to and instantly connect with, but he doesn’t quite meet all of your criteria. Instead of dismissing him stop and ask yourself, does he have potential?
Some men need a strong woman to support and encourage them. He may be the laid back type and appear to be less ambitious, but he may need a push.
You’ve heard the saying, “Behind every great man is a strong woman.” It may take some men longer to mature or to settle on a career path, but that doesn’t mean he won’t get his act together, if that’s what he has to do to be with a woman who places that expectation upon him.
As long as the pros, out-weigh the cons and there’s chemistry and compatibility the rest can fall into place. There’s not a perfect man or woman out there, but there may be one that is perfect for you if you give it a chance to develop into its full potential.
