Nowadays, the dating game is a dynamic, constantly-evolving thing that requires you to be on your A-game at all times, lest you mess up! Of course, every relationship is unique and has its own equation, but there are still some basic rules that apply to every relationship. Make sure to avoid these mistakes so you can be happy with your beau.
Taking them for granted
With our busy lives and social schedules, it's easy to take your S.O. for granted at times. Just make sure to not make a habit of it. Prioritise them just the way you'd prioritise work and friends to keep the spark alive.
Being too clingy
This is the opposite of the first one, but equally common. Although it's healthy and normal to rely on your S.O. for support and to make them a part of your daily life, it's also important to give each other space and have lives away from each other.
Going too fast
Even if you feel early on that this person could be the one you spend the rest of your life with, don't let your infatuation trick you into going too fast and making permanent decisions too early. So, don't meet each other's parents within a week or get married in two months. If you're indeed meant to spend your lives together, you have plenty of time!
Everyone is taught to be selfish nowadays, but a relationship can't last without mutual compromise. No two people are 100% alike, which means that you and your partner are bound to have differences of opinion about something or the other. Just learn to compromise, and you'll be a whole lot happier with each other.
Not including each other in your social lives
This doesn't strike most people as a mistake, but integrating your S.O. into your friend circle to at least some extent is quite important. Not doing so can lead to a feeling of distance between your friends and partner, and who wants that? Your friends don't need to be besties with your partner, but make sure they at least have drinks together from time to time.
