Dating go with the flow
In the early stages you want to make sure that you have very open communication.If you are always clear about your goals, your likes, your dislikes and your feelings, you will always know where you stand in that relationship.
Well he “used to” open car doors for me and bring me flowers and all of a sudden one day it stopped.If you are going above and beyond and in essence being “phony” just to impress your partner in the early stages, well you’re only making things difficult on yourself because your new beau actually believes that you are sweet and romantic ALL THE TIME.And the minute that you start to relax and return to your normal average niceness, it will be noticed immediately.Too many people at the early stages make the mistake of dropping everything and being totally “on call” for their other half.I can tell you that this is NOT a good move nor is it very healthy or attractive.You will come across as phony and also confuse your partner when you stop with the charade.
If your goal is to be in a long-term relationship, then you would want to know that your new partner really likes you for who you truly are and accepts you as is.
Your family and friends are important and should not be tossed to the side or “ditched” just because you’re in a new relationship.
In fact, you can be inclusive with your partner, at a comfortable pace, but do not suffocate your partner with demands of spending time together and being joined at the hip.
This is not the time to pretend to be someone that you’re not just because you don’t want to risk losing this person.
If you are not yourself, you will have a very difficult time pretending to be someone that you’re not for the entirety of the relationship.
An example of that would be if you said that you LIKED to travel when you are afraid of flying!
