Tools for a Successful Relationship
Lay Out Expectations in the Beginning
If you don’t have the expectations out in front, your partner can never deliver them to you. Always be straightforward and honest because when you’re going to enter into a relationship with somebody, whether that’s a friend or someone who’s going to be a lover, you have to always be setting up the expectations. The sooner you get those expectations out and open, the more the other person can start to understand you.
Listen More Than You Speak
Often, we’re saying the same thing, but the other person doesn’t hear it because we’re not using the right language for them. So you have to remember when you talk to your partner, you’re not talking for you; you’re talking so that they can understand. You have to be in a space where you’re listening to them because they will give you the words you need to say back. Listen to your partner. The idea that you can continuously talk and be in a relationship is crazy. You have to spend so much more time listening to get a feel for where things are for your partner.
Update the Rules
Don’t wait until things go wrong to talk to your partner about what you want, need, and dream of. Every single week, check-in with each other and update the rules. Ask questions that are important to your partner’s wellbeing and happiness. Is there anything you need more of or less of? Have we been over-scheduled and too busy? How’s our sex life? How’s the food we’ve been eating? Have we been spending too much money? By updating the rules every single week, you avoid resentment and the build-up of a big fight by addressing any concerns right away.
