Okay, admit it, ladies – we’ve all been there. You just started a new relationship and you’re already letting your crazy show. Guys don’t know how to deal with the crazy – especially before they’ve created a real emotional bond with you. So, my plea to all the ladies out there is to just try to take a breath and relax!
If you put too much pressure on a relationship right out of the gates, you could likely scare your man off. No guy wants to go out with a girl and realize after a couple dates that he’s got a bonafide stage 5 clinger on his hands. Don’t play games, but don’t let him think he already owns the whole farm! If he doesn’t have to work for it, he’s not going to respect you. And without respect, this relationship is going nowhere, fast.
As for letting your jealous side come out to play, I would highly suggest that you don’t. Honestly, you can’t watch your man 24/7 and you can’t stop him from straying. Trust your gut – if you thought he was nice enough to date, then don’t just assume that he’s cheating on you every chance he gets.
Last, but not least, don’t ever assume you can change a man. I wouldn’t expect any of you to let a man come into your life and change everything that makes you, you – so why shouldn’t it go the other way, too? Healthy relationships are about compromise and accepting someone not just for their great qualities, but for their flaws as well.
