When you are new to relationships, things can go south extremely quick. There are some common issues that arise in any relationship and we are to help you identify and help you through it. Here at gagimedia we know that our readers are going to be struggling with their relationships early in life. Thus, here are some common relationship problems and how to try to fix them.
1. Lack of Communication
Like any relationship, whether it be physical or a friendship, the key is to keep open lines of communication. As we start to get comfortable in our relationships we often forget to talk and this can lead to huge problems. You have to realize that people change all the time, and you are going to need to trust your significant other. With this trust comes communication, try talking to them and seeing what they are feeling. It will help you through the rough spots and let your proper in the high times.
Trust is not given, it is earned. First, do you trust your partner enough to let them go out to dinner with someone else? If you do not, you are either extremely insecure or your relationship is already starting to break. Secondly, do you trust your partners decisions? When it comes down to it, if you do not trust your partner with making a small decision, how are you going to be able to trust them making a life altering decision. If you are looking for a long term relationship, this is not a good sign.
When your relationship consists of two insecure people, you are going to forever be stuck in a cycle of jealousy and anger. It is not helping your partner that you are jealous of what they are accomplishing, you are a team act like it. You are going to have stop letting negativity build your relationship, and rather build from each other’s successes. Be proud of your partner, you are a team, and their successes are also yours as well.
4. The issue with Love at First Sight
We have all heard the saying about rose colored glasses, and this saying is very true. Sometimes, people are just not meant to be, and the faster you realise this the faster you will not get attached. If you are dating someone that does not have anything in common with you it might be time to look at a new partner, or try to find something you both can get into. If not, it might be time to leave before you get ridiculously frustrated.
5. Sex drive lacking?
It happens, it is bound to happen and you are going to have to be prepared for it. At the beginning you guys will be going at it like rabbits. But, while time passes, sex becomes more of a chore than a fun loving activity. Look to change it up in the bedroom and see what happens. Try something new and you guys may be going at it like some frisk bunnies sooner than you think.
It is the number one issue that married couples fight about, and for good reason. If you are making the money, you are going to be full of love and happiness. While if you see your friends making all the money you are going to be frustrated and wondering about your self-worth. If you are having issues with money, look at it this way. Be happy, no matter your financial standing. If you are happy now, just think of how happy you guys will be when one or both of your start making the big bucks.
7. Change in Priorities
As an individual we generally are full of change, but you are in a relationship… this is where the problem starts. You are not the person who you were last year, and in a year you are going to be different as well. You are both going to go throw growing pains in your relationship, and you are going to have to evolve. To evolve together make sure to talk about your beliefs, and interests, thus this will help you grow and become a strong couple in the future.
Time is money as they say, and it is tough for some couples to come up with enough time to spend with each other over the course of a day. When you start spending large amounts of time away from your partner you start to question do I really need this partner in my life anymore? Try not to drift away, and spend ways to spend short bursts over the week to see each other. A quick coffee date, or quick lunch are great ways to keep connected. These make for great conversations and allow you two to be closer than ever.
9. Space and Growth
These are not something you are going to have to worry about when first starting off but, are important features to think about for the future. Spending time together in a relationship is extremely important but, so is spending time apart. You need your alone time, and so does your significant other. When you smoother your partner, they are subconsciously going to feel isolated from the rest of the world. Thus, they are going to crave attention from others… and I think we both know where that normally ends up.
10. The Madness that is Love
Falling in love can be done at the drop of a hat but, staying in love is the real challenge. You are in a balancing act between dependency and passion and they sometimes butt heads. Important questions to ask yourself are: How much do you need this partner? How much do you love and want your partner? Sex alone is not going to keep a relationship afloat, you are going to need compatibility and patience. Love is not easy, but if you are willing to put in some effort the benefits outweigh the costs.
