There are some things to not do in a relationship that you might not be aware of. Relationships are delicate and believe it or not, they can break really easily if you let them. That's why I've come up with a list of the top 7 things to not do in a relationship, that way you can make sure that you don't mess it up at all! Some of the things not to do in a relationship are common sense, but read on, you might not know about them!
1. No Cheating
I know that this seems like a common sense thing not to do in a relationship, but don't cheat. Cheating hurts everyone and no matter how open your relationship is, if you need to have sex with someone who is not your boyfriend or girlfriend, you should probably end it with them. Truthfully, cheating is also dangerous because of STDs, so don't do it!
2. Never Ignore
One of the biggest pet peeves of the Better Half and I is when a text message goes unanswered or I don't answer my phone. I'm not saying that you constantly need to be glued to your phone, but you shouldn't ignore your partner. Whether it is out in public, in front of your friends or via electronic devices. Pay attention to your girlfriend and she'll pay attention to you!
3. Don’t Bottle up Emotions
So, this is a habit of mine. I tend to bottle up every single emotion that I am feeling and then have a huge exploding fight to get everything out. Isn't it easier to just deal with the issues as they come up? I promise, when you bottle up emotions, it is going to end up in a huge fight that you'll say things that you regret!
4. Don’t Stay Unhappy
I can't stress this one enough. If you are unhappy in your relationship, make sure that you end it. There is no reason for either one of you to be unhappy, a relationship should be all about happiness. This is by far one of the most important things not to do in a relationship!
5. Don’t Get Jealous over His Friends
A guy is going to have friends that he wants to hang out with. Sometimes, he's going to want to hang out with his friends without you. Don't get jealous! You can go off and have a girls night without him!
6. Don’t Expect Change
Thinking that a guy is going to change just because he is with you isn't possible. Typically, when you are with a guy that doesn't shower every single morning, you aren't going to change that about him. In fact, you should just accept him the way that he is, after all, that's why you fell in love with him in the beginning right?
7. Never Hold a Grudge
Finally ladies, the very last thing not to do in a relationship is to hold a grudge. Why would you want to hold a grudge? Yes, you can get mad at him sometimes, but truthfully, you don't want to stay mad for too long, you never know what could happen.
Sometimes, when you are in a relationship, it's easy to take things for granted and that your man will be there all the time. There are lines and boundaries that you shouldn't cross though. There are things not to do in a relationship and these are just a few of them! What other things not to do in a relationship can you think of? Any to share?
