Sometimes it does get hard to know about what you should expect from any relationship. Look at here now about what things bother most couple. Whether one should return back to the very text that is sent or should your partner necessarily take out time to spend with you in the weekends? Also, what about the monthly expenses, should you divide it into a half and half?
Here is what you should expect from every relationship. This is your right in any romantic relationship.
It is important that your partner shows affection towards you. This could be some simple physical affection like kissing and hugging or just holding hands. Your partner should trust you and respect you as a person and demonstrate that there should be some physical touch and intimacy between the two of you.
Your partner should listen and not judge you when you are in pain. They may not feel the same as you but because you are sad they should feel bad for you and be with you in the difficult times.
A good partner should be able to show respect even if he disagrees with you in many stances. There should be no name calling. You know your partner is respectful when he is able to admire your strengths and accepts your weakness.
Your partner should always think about which of his behavior may affect you. That doesn’t mean that they should give you everything that you want but they should be able to see things from your viewpoint as well. If your partner does not do so then all that he sees you is as a rock and does not care about your feelings or your needs.
In addition, it is important that for any relationship to survive you invest time in the relationship. But if your partner does not have time for you or keeps reminding you about how much time they spend with you then it is time to start thinking whether it is worth pursuing this relationship any further. Understand dating, sex, commitment and self worth. Each assignment will include homework, resources and actionable steps. Let’s move beyond the surface to experience the true love and intimacy we deserve. Are you in? “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
