Even though there’s nothing wrong with having expectations in a relationship, unrealistic expectations can really do a number on your love life. Nobody’s perfect, we all have flaws and we all make mistakes; we’re human, after all. So don’t expect to have a perfect relationship that can live up to your high expectations or hopes because such a thing is not possible. Even though when you look at people’s Facebook pictures, they all seem always happy and in love, just keep in mind that you are only seeing the happy aspects of their relationship. Don’t worry about the fact that everyone else seems way happier in their relationship than you; you are just seeing it from one filtered angle. Here are a few unrealistic expectations that can ruin your love life:

1. In a Good Relationship, Conflicts Don’t Occur

This is one of the most popular unrealistic expectations that people have regarding their relationship.

The important thing is to learn how to fight fair to solve those arguments in a more productive way.

Your Partner Should Always Understand Your Feelings

We are taught that relationships if with the right person should be effortless. I agree that healthy relationships are hard work and you've got to invest in them. The fairytales only show you how they got together, they didn't show us whether they stayed together.

The last one reminds me of something my grandma always said, "If you never argue, you must never be talking. Either that or your scared sh**less to have a different opinion." Lol!
