People are not solitary creatures and that’s the reason relationships make the world go round.
Will tell you that they’re fun, but they will need quite a lot of work. Because such a thing doesn’t exist we will never come up with the equation that will help us have the perfect relationship, but some people do come pretty damn close.
We’ve talked about the hints your lover rocks in a previous article and now it is time to talk about 10 relationship myths debunked, because we all need a little help in life and especially in love.
10. PARTNERS SHOULD STICK TO THEIR ROLES IN THE RELATIONSHIP
That’s the biggest myth and the biggest mistake you could do in a relationship. While everyone does have a role in a connection, it doesn’t mean that one must keep that role for eternity while in that relationship. You’re the person who takes the initiative and your significant other has to be convinced to do things, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Work together to change things!
9. HAPPY LIFE, HAPPY WIFE
This is probably how marriage is viewed by a big chunk of the population: that a husband is responsible for the happiness of his wife and that men in general have a hard time making their wives happy. This belief is as old as time and it should start its decline now. Learn how to bring happiness if you want a happy life.
8. CASUAL SEX ALWAYS SUCKS
No it doesn’t! This is exactly what people in relationships are telling them to feel better. To tell the truth, great sex is good sex and bad sex is bad sex and casual sexual can be both.
Good sex isn’t only loving and meaningful, it can be casual and without any shred of meaning. You need to accept that sex is out of the question if you decide to maintain a committed relationship where you and your partner are monogamous then. Do not be all sour grapes and all!
7. WOMEN ARE THE IRRATIONAL ONES IN A RELATIONSHIP
Oh, come on, you must be a misogynist if you still believe this crap! Back in the ’50 for every time a woman would begin acting irrational the hormones were to blame. Now, it’s absolutely the same thing. Don’t you believe it’s time to own up to your actions and ask yourself why your girl is unhappy with you, rather than calling her irrational?
6. YOU SHOULD TRY TO CHANGE THE OTHER
Actually, you should try to change your significant other! If there is something wrong with them, do everything you can to change them. I’m all for accepting people the way they are, but a connection is filled with compromises and that is a fantastic thing.
There should be a lot of things that are good you can learn from your significant other. If there aren’t, then maybe you’re not with the ideal person. Allow yourself to learn from them, to alter you think you will need to change, but never compromise on principles.
5. IT’S OK TO BADMOUTH YOUR PARTNER FROM TIME TO TIME
This is a myth that has lived long enough. Your partner has done something that has annoyed 19, don’t go running to mother or your buddies. Don’t tell your guy friends that she is a nag and do not tell your lady friends that he is a jerk.
Be a grownup and manage your feelings in a grownup way. If you don’t enjoy them anymore, simply break up, it is that simple!
4. EVERYBODY FIGHTS
This is just another one those relationship myths debunked; although it’s partly true because everyone does really fight, you have to ask yourself how often you guys fight. If it is all the time, then maybe (just maybe), then there is something wrong with your connection that needs fixing.
3. YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING A SINGLE PERSON CAN
You know couples that are extremely open-minded cool and allow their spouses to do things that normally would be somewhat iffy, life going out drinking with the girls or the boys and return in the wee hours of the morning. That is nice, but do not think that since you can do that, you are able to do everything a single person can!
2. RELATIONSHIPS ARE HARD WORK
This is true, but only to an extent. It is work to reside with or be around someone for a long time period, but it shouldn’t be, or at least you shouldn’t think about it hard work. Nothing good is simple in this world and the same is true for relationships. You need to spend spirit and time in a relationship to find something good back.
1. SEX FADES
OK, this one’s not a cold reality, although a fantasy, but it doesn’t really have to be like this all of the time. Almost all couples go through this so or after the first year of relationship, but it is really up to you if you continue with a sexless relationship or not.
If you are OK with little if any sex, then kudos to you, but your significant other and then you should discuss it and do something about it if you’re not!
