You love your boyfriend, so you want things to work out between the two of you. There are so many couples that think they'll last, but end up breaking up before their first anniversary. In order to avoid being like them, you need to treat your partner with the utmost respect. Here are the most important morals you need for a successful relationship:
You can't date someone who constantly lies to you. If you know your boyfriend fibs about who he hangs out with and how much he loves you, then there's no way your relationship will last. You need to be completely honest with each other if you want things to last. The truth can hurt your heart, but it'll only help your relationship.
You have to be willing to compromise with each other. If he always lets you get your way, that's great for now, but he's going to end up resenting you. That's why you need to find a just solution to your problems. You can't get your way all the time, and he can't get his way all the time. You need to learn to compromise, so that you're both happy at the end of the day.
You can't cheat on your boyfriend. You can't flirt with other men, either. If you agree to date someone, then you can't choose when you want to be loyal and when you want to have some fun on the side. In order to be a good girlfriend, you have to avoid acting on your sexual desires, unless they concern your boyfriend.
You have to keep the promises that you make to your boyfriend. If you tell him you'll attend his hockey game, don't back out at the last second. If he calls you when he's angry, don't tell him you're too busy to talk. He needs to know that you'll be there for him whenever he needs you.
You need to stay humble. Even though your boyfriend always compliments you on your beauty, you can't let it go to your head. If you do, then you'll start acting like you're better than he is. That's a recipe for disaster, so try to remember that you two are equals.
You shouldn't date someone that you don't respect. You should see the value in the other person and be thankful that they've chosen to spend their precious time with you. If you don't respect them, then you'll find yourself talking down to them and treating them like they're worthless. Once that happens, your relationship is as good as over.
It's important to have self-control for a few reasons. You don't want to end up impulsively kissing a stranger when your man trusts you to be loyal. You don't want to impulsively yell at your man about how horrible he is when he didn't do anything wrong, either. You need to be able to control your impulses.
These qualities are important to possess if you want your relationship to last. Even if they're not important to you, they're probably important to your mate, which means you need to recognize their value. Is it important for your boyfriend to have these qualities or do they not matter to you?
