15 Harsh Realities We Ignore At The Start Of A Relationship That We Regret Later
Every relationship has a rocky start but there are certain things we tend to ignore that we end up regretting later. There are many things we ignore about our new partner and also about ourselves while trying to impress them. These can be small issues but as we keep dating we might begin to get annoyed by these issues.
Sooner or later we won’t be able to tolerate them or our relationship will come to a screeching halt. When this happens, we regret not saying anything earlier but now it is too late. Here are some red flags you should not ignore in a new relationship.
1Not wanting to marry
This is something that you will not talk about immediately but should discuss. If you want a committed relationship then you need to know what you want from your relationship as well as what your partner wants. If they don’t want or ‘believe in’ marriage then this is a red flag that needs to be resolved. Where do you and they see this relationship heading?
2Having high expectations
When you get into a relationship you will obviously have expectations from your partner. You will want them to do certain things which are natural. But you cannot have high, unreal expectations from them. And also they should not have these for you. If you notice this you need to be vocal about it or it will lead to arguments later.
3Questioning you about your past
This one is for women. If your man constantly questions you about your past and how many guys you dated you need to be crystal clear with your intentions for him. Men can be quite insecure but will not be vocal about it but can behave like a nagging grandmother about the issue. Clear things up at the start to avoid issues later.
4Not communicating properly
This is a major red flag that most of the time goes unnoticed. This is because people often feel a bit shy when in a new relationship. It is a lot like testing out the water before diving in. You are a bit hesitant which is natural. But, the issue arises when you have been together for some time and they still don’t communicate properly.
5You not being over your ex
Before you enter a relationship you need to ask yourself one question. Are you over your previous relationship? This is important because you cannot make someone believe that you are into them if you are still not over your previous relationship and partner. This will be a big issue later on if you don’t resolve it and move on now.
