There are everyday habits that could ruin your relationship.
You must stop those bad habits for the sake of your
relationship. It’s normal to get to that stage in your
relationship where you feel completely at ease with each
other. When you get so comfortable that you neglect your
friends, your manners and your hygiene though, things can
start going downhill. Below are most common everyday habits
that you must avoid for the sake of your relationship.
1: Letting yourself go:
The more time we spend with our partner, the more
comfortable we feel around each other. When we first met
them, we strutted around looking gorgeous and acting like
butter wouldn’t melt until suddenly, we became comfortable
with each other and boom – we look like we’ve just stepped
off the set of The Walking Dead and our manners are nowhere
to be seen. Sound familiar? While your manners and
appearance can inevitably become a little less controlled when
you’re spending a large amount of time with that one special
person, it’s important to make a conscious effort to still
impress your partner every now and again. You don’t have to
walk around looking like a perfectly preened superstar and
speaking like a queen, but making an effort to scrub up and
watching your manners can go a long way in keeping the
spice in your relationship.
2: Being overly lovey-dovey:
It’s not a good sign when you’re constantly texting your other
half saying “I love you” (just in case they forgot about when
you said it ten minutes ago), or you won’t leave each other’s
side because “you’re in love” (oh please, this is getting cringe-
worthy now), and when you’re kissing passionately around the
family dinner table…. eww, stop this! This kind of behaviour
makes your friends and family squirm and can also be
detrimental to your relationship. Yes schmudgy wudgy cuddle
bum, I’m talking to you. All of that lovey-dovey-ness may feel
great to start with, but too much of it can lead to these
special gestures becoming less special and then we face the
dilemma of expressing our love when our partner is used to
lots of passion and confessions of love in their everyday life.
3: Forgetting your friends:
Have you ever had a friend who has suddenly partnered up
with the guy/girl they’ve been raving about for the past few
weeks and then you don’t see them again for months? Maybe
that “friend” is actually you? We’ve all probably been guilty of
this at some point in our lives. Are you still with this partner
now? Probably not (if you are, we’ve got to hand it to you for
making it work.) No matter how much we love spending time
with our other half, it’s important to keep in regular contact
with our friends for the sake of our own sanity. Our pals
remind us that there are other things going on in the world
aside from romance, and they keep our feet firmly on the
ground when we start getting swept off into romantic dream
land. Spending all of your time with your other half usually
ends up with you getting bored of each other pretty soon into
the relationship and this is a recipe for disaster.
4: Over-spending:
Whether you’re a shopaholic who can’t cure your addiction to
save for a new rug for the living room floor or you’re an avid
gambler up to your eyes in debt and unable to pay your bills,
both of these scenarios may eventually wear your relationship
down. Maybe it’s your partner who has the spending problem?
If your other half can afford to go out and buy a new car,
despite having a perfectly functioning Ferrari on the drive, but
then has to borrow money off you to buy food for the rest of
the month it probably makes you feel pretty grim. Unless you
nip it in the bud from the start, things will only get worse.
Someone who isn’t grown up enough to be sensible with their
own finances doesn’t rate highly on the list of favourable
traits in a partner, as it can cause all sorts of stress and put a
huge amount of pressure on the relationship in the future.
5: Bad-mouthing your partner:
The negative attitude that “men are all the same” or “women
just can’t do anything right” does a pretty good job of
embedding itself into our minds and ultimately ruining our
relationships. Indeed, both men and women are often guilty of
tarnishing their partner with the same gender stereotyped
brush, particularly during heated heart-to-hearts with their
friends. These kinds of conversations embed a negative
attitude in your head”, which may subconsciously permeate
your attitude towards your partner in day-to-day life. In
certain situations we have to accept that men are from Mars
and women are from Venus so we can stop moaning about
them and live together in harmony.
Some of these points might sound funny, but looking closely
at them open our eyes and throw more light into them.
