After much effort and consistent dedication, you’re finally in a relationship. Firstly, congratulations 🥳 as you’re among the lucky ones. Why do we say that? Because people in the US think that dating has become harder in the past 10 years. So, great job on coming this far.
But like Spiderman’s aunt said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” So once you have it, use it wisely, instead of messing up like Peter Parker. Confused? Don’t worry, we’ll explain.
You might’ve found the (potential) special someone through online dating and matchmaking platforms, but now the real test begins.
During this critical make-or-break stage, couples usually fall apart.
Would you like to be in on the secrets of building a solid relationship? If so, you’re in luck.
Get ready to delight your partner and spend a happy life with the simple yet often-forgotten tips by our expert matchmakers.
Let’s dig in.
Acceptance and Compromise
If one is perfect, I’m nobody.
That’s the most common misconception among people.
If only it was a fictional world, where we could travel through time (like the flash) to rectify our past and improve our future. Even though there aren’t many certainties, we can assure you that you and your partner won’t have these powers.
However, you would have the power to leave your ego aside and accept when you’re wrong. Admit your mistakes instead of being stubborn. That’s sure to defuse many intense situations between you and your partner.
Having said that, remember one thing – emotions aren’t like a power switch that you can switch on and off at will. In situations when your partner is enraged, you may even consider taking a step back and compromise.
Even though you know you’re right, look (as Gellert Grindelwald said) for the greater good, which is a sustainable relationship.
Express Your Emotions
Life is not fair.
It’ll consistently throw challenges and obstacles your way. Add to that your relationship commitments – safe to say that you’ll have your hands full. With so much going on, having a barrage of fluctuating emotions is natural.
Usually, people think if they express too much, it’ll be a burden on their partner. However, our matchmakers at MIMA disagree.
We believe that higher transparency is better for the relationship.
So, if you’re feeling depressed about something, share it with your partner. Even if you’ve had an achievement (doesn’t matter how insignificant it might be), let your partner know and celebrate together.
Respect Their Privacy
You’d be thinking, “Wait a minute, didn’t you just say to share emotions?”
We sure did, and this point isn’t a contradiction. However, in all the sharing and openness, there needs to be a level of privacy. In other words, ‘Me Time’ for your partner.
How much privacy your partner expects isn’t constant. Everyone has different preferences. That’s where communication and cooperation are important. A wise man once said, “Assumption is the mother of all failures.”
So, you’d not want assumption to trigger a failed relation, right? That’s why you should understand each other to set the privacy perimeters.
Learn and Move On
What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
That’s more than just a song. It’s a vital life lesson. A relationship without ups-down is similar to not having a sickness in your body for a long time. Traditionally, it would seem like the best thing that could happen to your relationship, but in reality, it’s not.
According to medical research, getting sick improves your immunity. Same is the case with relationships. If it’s all perfect, you might not know how to deal with tricky situations when things go south.
These unfavorable situations are good to strengthen your relationship for the future, as now you have a not-to-do list. Take it in, keep a cool head, and move on. Don’t keep letting it haunt you or define your relationship.
