Things every individual should be aware of during relationships.

Maybe you’re not planning to get married in the future, but who knows? Things people tend to say usually turns the other way around! Just a heads up, we’ve compiled a list of things both partners should have knowledge of before propelling a relationship to reach a sense of compromise between individuals.


  1. I’m independent and nothing can change that- Please respect and value my space and trust me to value yours. You have no rights to control anyone, certainly not me!


  1. I’ll be your greatest supporter and a true critic- Take on something new or even get a promotion and I’ll be the first one to pop a bottle of champagne and celebrate. But at the same time, I will also be the one to give you a real, honest feedback because you deserve it.


  1. I’m short-tempered. Deal with it- I am going to throw tantrums at the smallest of reasons and probably break a few items of china but bear with me.If you do love me truly, you’ll stay and support me throughout my highest highs and lowest lows.


  1. I’ll never ask you to choose me over your friends– Your friends are as important to you as mine are to me. So if a football match is on and your friends call you, I’ll never say no unless I really need you.


  1. The way to my heart is through my stomach– Treat me with great food and it doesn’t have to be ordered, even home-cooked is great. They say “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. That holds good for this woman too.


  1. One vacation a year however busy we are- Life’s tough and so are we. But this vacation is time for us irrespective of however old or busy we get.


  1. My family and your family= our familia- I will love and cherish your family as fiercely as I love mine (and expect you will do the same).


  1. I prefer nights in more than out– nights in allows us to get to know each other on a deeper level and to understand each other better.


  1. Cuddle- The emotional connection will always be as important as the physical connection.


  1. Trust me with your secrets and guard mine– I’m not always open to sharing but if I do, please guard my secrets and trust me with yours.
