3 steps towards building a new and healthy relationship

When starting a new relationship, it’s always a good idea to start off slowly. No matter how much you want to rush into things, just take each day at a time.

Remember, you have all the time in the world and the slower the pace, the longer you’ll last.

Step 1: Stay rational
In the early stages of a new relationship, we have unrealistic expectations. We think we know everything about our lover and we imagine qualities in them that mightn’t even exist.

Tip: Think with your head as well as your heart.

Step 2: Set the standards
Sometimes we tend to turn a blind eye to the behaviors we don’t like in a man because we are scared to speak up.

Tip: If you don’t like something, let him know from the get go.

Step 3: Build a friendship
The foundation of a healthy relationship is built on friendship. So it’s important to spend time outside the bedroom so you can get to know each other.

Tip: Go for walks, cook together, hang out – it’s endless really.
