You are in a new relationship, which is great. But you don't know exactly how to handle it, which isn’t so great. What do you say? What do you do? How do you act? Don’t panic. You can handle a new relationship if you simply get to know each other, communicate, and take your time.
1. Be yourself.
Allow your prospective spouse the opportunity to learn more about you and the wonderful qualities that he or she will like in you. Don't alter your personality to suit their tastes and desires. Just remember that if they didn't like you for who you really are, they wouldn't be in a romantic relationship with you. Be open and honest about the things you enjoy and dislike, as well as the things you disagree with. For example, if you despise basketball, don't pretend to be enthusiastic about the NCAA March Madness tournament. If you enjoy sketching, you might want to show some of your sketches to your significant other.
2. Talk to each other.
Despite the fact that you know enough about your partner to be in a relationship with them, there is a lot about them that you don't know, and there is a lot about you that they don't know. It is true that the more you learn about one another, the more you will understand one another and the stronger your relationship will be. Talk about the things that happen every day, such as how your day went, funny things that your friends did, and your plans for the weekend. Discuss your dreams and goals with your significant other to gain a better understanding of their aspirations. They'll appreciate it if you share your aims and aspirations with them. Talk about your anxieties, problems, and even your blunders with your friends and family. Sharing these experiences will help you two develop a stronger bond.
3. Pay attention to small things.
You will learn a great deal about your mate by talking to them, but you will also learn a great deal about them by studying them and paying attention to other signals about them that are there. Take note of the types of music, movies, and television shows that they enjoy. What kinds of scenarios make them chuckle? What is it that makes them so enraged? Exactly what kinds of items do they enjoy or comment on on the internet?
4. Try new things.
For the reason that you and your spouse are people, you and your partner will share some likes and beliefs while also having some differences. Be open to doing things their way every once in a while; you could find that you enjoy it or that you learn something new as a result. Allow them to expose you to their hobbies and show you how to participate in them. (Everyone enjoys the sensation of being an expert.) You can also teach kids to participate in some of your favorite pastimes. Pay attention to what they have to say about where to go, what to do, how to do things, and other topics. Don't feel obligated to do anything you don't want to do because someone else wants you to. You can experiment with different things without compromising your morals, values, or convictions.
5. Spend time together.
Spending time together is the most effective approach to get to know one another. It's important to interact with one another in a variety of contexts so that you may get a sense of the diverse sides of one another. Spending one-on-one time with your partner allows you to focus on each other without being distracted by other things. Observing how people interact with one another as they accomplish activities in a group context is a valuable learning tool. Don't simply look at how good they look; pay attention to what makes them feel comfortable or uncomfortable, what types of activities and environments they prefer, and so on.
6. Talk about the serious and important things face-to-face.
When something is genuinely upsetting you, it's important to express yourself about it. It's best to speak up when something initially irritates you rather than for it to fester and grow into a major problem later on in life. Keep in mind that the relationship is still in its early stages and that your partner may not be aware of all of your boundaries. In private, express yourself gently and without using an accusatory tone about whatever is on your mind. Say, for example, that you don't want to yell, "You're being so insensitive!" In the midst of the mall, they shouted, "We're expanding our business to everyone!" As an alternative, you could wait until you and your partner are alone and say something like "Hey, darling, it makes me uncomfortable to talk to complete strangers about personal stuff." "Can we keep our personal information between the two of us?"
7. Talk about the relationship future.
Have a realistic and honest conversation about where you see the relationship heading. Making sure you are both thinking the same about the future of the relationship will make it easier for you the two to build your new relationship.
