It is very important to note one thing in life – You shouldn’t always depend on your partner once you get into a relationship.
Relationships – the best part of our lives, or the worst part of our lives. When it comes to relationships there are some common flaws that can break them.
It’s important to recognize which of these are common in your relationship. Here are the 7 most common flaws in a relationship.
1. Committing too quickly
When you like someone you only want to be with them. You want to see them every day, you feel the need to text them 20 times a day, you want to know what they’re up to, and whether they are thinking about you.
It means that you are falling for them too quickly. How do you know that they can be trusted? How do you know that they are the right one for you? Putting all your eggs in one basket can be a little risky. Do you even know that person? Committing to a guy too quickly will most likely make you oversee any bad signs about them.
2. Committing too slow
While committing too quickly to a guy may be a mistake, committing too slow could also harm the relationship. It’s a fine balance between the two! If you like a guy and you want to be with him, you want to be exclusive and you are done seeing others, it’s important that he knows that.
But if you like to keep your options open, if you’re not quite ready to settle in with him, or simply not too sure about him, then you may be in danger of missing out on a great guy, just because you’re not ready to commit yet.
3. Letting people interfere with your relationship
One of the most common flaws in a relationship is letting others have a say in it. Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors, nobody can be the judge of your relationship, or tell you what you should or shouldn’t do.
If you tend to overshare, ensuring that all your friends and family know everything there is to know about your relationship, then don’t be surprised if they start making comments about it.
4. Not talking about money
A major flaw in a relationship could simply be not establishing where you both stand in terms of money. That means anything from shared budget and bank account, what you spend on, your attitude towards saving and investment, your goals, and aspirations.
There is a saying that there are two things that could break a relationship – cheating or money. Make sure that your relationship with money doesn’t interfere with your actual romantic relationship.
5. Trying to control the other person
You should know by now that trying to control another person is never a good sign in a loving relationship. Our romantic partners are not our possession. Our relationship is a partnership, a constant dance between compromise, commitment, and communication.
If you have the constant need to control your partner, to tell them what they can or cannot do, who they can or cannot hang out with, somehow shaping their life and entire personality, then you need to have a serious talk with yourself.
6. Losing the romance
If you don’t make time for romance in your relationship, then why are you even in a relationship? Losing the romance and intimacy in a romantic relationship is a sure-fire way to break up.
Making time to simply sit with each other, to hold hands, to cuddle, to kiss regularly, to have sex – is essential in a long-lasting relationship.
7. Having unrealistic expectations
Want a happy relationship? Then lower your expectations! It doesn’t mean lowering your standards or not valuing your needs in a relationship.
On the contrary, it means accepting that no relationship or partner is perfect, it means acknowledging that some things will go wrong, there will be ups and downs, and it’s the right partner that will stick by your side when things go wrong who truly deserves your love.
