10 Tips For Building Healthy Relationships
Get your next romance of on the right foot by following these 10 tips for building healthy relationships. Building healthy relationships with women can be difficult, especially if you are unsure what constitutes a healthy relationship. If you want a relationship that lasts, the key is to find a woman you would be friends with and with whom you feel comfortable and safe.
- Look at her character. Don't be distracted by how beautiful a woman is or how successful she is financially or in her career. Looks fade and a person can lose her job or money quickly, but her character usually endures. Building healthy relationships means looking beyond the surface. If she is a nice person who genuinely cares about people and other things, it will be easier for you to establish a good relationship with her.
- Be friends first, lovers later. Part of building healthy relationships is getting to know someone before you rush to sleep with her. A healthy relationship builds slowly over time. Don't feel pressured to jump into anything too quickly.
- Respect each other. If you can't respect the one you supposedly love, you probably can't respect anyone. Respecting your partner involves listening to her, giving her space when she needs it and not forcing her into doing things she doesn't want to. She should also respect you.
- Know what you are getting into. Many people are up front about what they expect from a relationship while some aren't. Building healthy relationships involves being forthright and honest with the other person, though. Ask at the beginning about her expectations and be willing to share yours as well.
- Recognize that you are not the same person. People are usually attracted to others who share similar beliefs. You need to recognize though, that you and your lover will not always agree on everything and that as long as it's not something directly impacts your relationship, it's okay to disagree about things sometimes.
- Fight fair. No matter how happy or healthy your relationship is, you will get into arguments with your partner from time to time. The key to surviving those arguments is to keep above the level of personal attacks. Don't call her names, insult her tastes and never, ever, resort to physical violence.
- Ask questions. If you feel confused by something your partner said, ask her to clarify. Asking questions about another person's beliefs or feelings is a key way to develop understanding between the two of you and establish healthy relationships.
- Be flexible and willing to negotiate. In a healthy and balanced relationship, one partner should not get her way all the time. Be willing to compromise about a wide range of things, such as where to go on a date to how much you'll spend on rent to who will do the dishes every night.
- Keep things open and exciting in bed. Sex is a major part of healthy relationships. Be willing to please your partner and try new things together. You should also feel comfortable discussing any concerns you have about your sex life.
- Take risks together. Trust is a key part of healthy relationships. Try new things together as a couple that you wouldn't otherwise attempt. Be willing to take the lead sometimes and be willing to rely on and trust your partner other times.
