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 meeting someone for the first time you should try to be a good listener. Sometimes a man or woman will show signs of being controlling or some other negative behavior. Another red flag is a person who constantly talks about their ex. This is an indication that they aren’t over them.
You can judge a person’s character by how they treat others; waiters, etc. Being rude to other people is a sign that they’re not a nice person.
If a man is late to a date, and he hasn’t called or texted you to let you know and to apologize for his lateness, this is a sign that he doesn’t value your time, he’s inconsiderate and this will only worsen if you continue to date him.
Having confidence and self-esteem go hand-in-hand with loving yourself. Self-love is necessary in order for a person to feel they deserve to be loved, and to put themselves first, before others. When a woman loves a man more than she loves herself, she will sacrifice her wants and needs for his to please her man.
Confidence and self-love are attractive qualities in a mate. I think it may be hard for someone to truly love a person who doesn’t love themself. It’s ironic though, that not loving yourself doesn’t prevent a person from being able to love someone else. The problem is when you love someone more than you love yourself, they’ll probably love you less and may take your love for granted.
Whether it’s the man or the woman, communication is the first thing to go downhill in a relationship that’s in trouble. Intimacy is often affected as well. The lack of interest in lovemaking is a sure sign that there’s trouble in paradise. Sex may become routine, but no longer passionate or romantic. If the couple isn’t married or living together, one of them will start to spend less time with the other. A man will detach himself emotionally as well as physically when he wants out of the relationship.
A man will no longer have concern about your feelings or your interests. He will alter his regular routine with you. The things he used to do with you, or for you, he will no longer do. Men will try to put space between the two of you, when he’s contemplating ending the relationship. Men don’t like talking about how they feel so they’ll usually remain distant. Most men will give obvious signals that he is losing his feeling for you. He will hope that you get the message.
Just about everyone has some emotional baggage, but too much can ruin any relationship. People sometimes sabotage their new relationships because of the baggage they carry with them into the new relationship. If you had prior trust or jealousy issues stemming from an ex boyfriend who cheated on you, or have abandonment issues from your childhood or any other past hurts, you must try to overcome your emotional insecurities so they don’t continue to follow you into future relationships. It’s not fair to a new love to have to suffer through your insecurities, that they didn’t cause.
It’s best to take time for yourself after a breakup and not rush into a rebound relationship. You need that time to heal and lose your baggage from past painful events. You need to be emotionally healthy in order to give a new relationship a chance at working. It’s not fair for someone else to have to pay for the emotional scars from your past. The types of emotional baggage that can threaten a relationship are from; childhood trauma from dysfunctional parents or neglect or abuse, or from past lovers, especially if you aren’t emotionally detached from them. These types of baggage can affect a new relationship in a very negative way.
Perhaps the solution is to learn how to effectively manage your baggage in a healthy way, or better yet, if you are able to lose it all together. If all else fails, try to limit the amount of baggage that you carry around. I’m not a therapist, but maybe being able to forgive, would also help a person to let go. You must try to bury past hurts in order to move forward to a positive outcome in the future.
A little jealousy in a relationship is harmless. As long as it doesn’t cause you to feel uncomfortable. Being jealous is a sign of insecurity.
There is harmless jealousy and potentially dangerous jealousy. Harmless jealousy can just be, being protective or not wanting to share your love’s time and attention with others. It can be flattering, knowing someone loves you and is feeling insecure. If there aren’t any threats or accusations, then it is probably nothing to worry about. If they trust you, that’s a good indication whether the jealousy is harmless or dangerous.
Being suspicious and accusing someone of cheating will cause a major problem in any relationship. Sometimes it will cause the person being accused to cheat. Being jealous can be a sign of a possessive individual.
