Whether you like to admit it or not, we all go into relationships with a set of expectations. Some relationship expectations are too high , and some are not. But according to experts, one of the biggest and most reasonable expectations you should have in a relationship is to be with a partner who genuinely enjoys doing certain basic things with you.
If not, your relationship may not be the right one for you. Every relationship is different. So as Frances Metzman , relationship expert and author of The Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way tells Bustle, "The types of activities your partner should genuinely enjoy doing with you is very subjective. For instance, if spending time with your family is a top priority for you but your partner prefers socializing with friends, compromise is key. But even after you've worked things out, it's one thing for your partner to genuinely like spending time with your family and it's another if you have to drag them out every gathering.
How can you enjoy spending time with your loved ones if the one you love is pouting in the corner because they don't want to be there? If this is the case, no amount of compromise can change how they truly feel. Your values just might be incompatible. So according to experts, if your partner doesn't genuinely enjoy doing the following things with you, it's probably not meant to be. This may seem like an obvious one. But if you've been together forever, boredom can hit and you may find yourself wanting to spend time with other people. At that point, spending time with your partner may start to feel more like a chore than something you actually want to do.
So if your partner is truly "The One," relationship coaches, Diana and Todd Mitchem , tell Bustle, it's important to genuinely like each other's company. One really great question to ask is, "Where do you see out relationship five years from now? This is a very telling when you're in the early stages of dating. If you're looking for something long-term and living with your partner is something you want to do, you should genuinely enjoy spending the night and just sleeping together.
But if they constantly make excuses to not stay the night, Pretty says, it's another of disconnect in the relationship. Again, while this can mean your partner isn't super invested just yet, that isn't always the case. If your relationship is going to last, your partner should genuinely enjoy being with you sexually, and that includes being open with their fantasies and desires.
So start talking, find what you like and what works for the both of you, and get to it. Let's face it, you're not going to love every single thing your partner loves. At the same time, they may not completely understand why some things are important to you. But if your relationship is going to work, d psychologist Dr. Danielle Forshee tells Bustle, your partner should recognize your feelings for something and be supportive.
In short, they should enjoy doing it because they know it means a lot to you. If they don't or flat out refuse, Dr. Forshee says it may al that your partner has difficulty with empathy or compromise which are important characteristics for a successful relationship.
When you get to a more solid and committed stage in your relationship, you're going to meet each other's friends and family. But as Pretty says, "If your partner is still not happy to meet with your loved ones by the six month mark, it is worth considering if they are the type of person you have a future with and your ideal fit. If you're struggling with your partner's lack of follow-through or commitment, she suggests tuning into your own guidance system to de-stress. Meditation will allow you to make a good choice as to whether you are in the right relationship or not.
When you get into a relationship, there are certain decisions you will have to make. For instance, choosing a holiday weekend away with your ificant other or a holiday weekend away with your group of friends. In order to build a healthy and connected relationship, your partner should be happy to make time in their schedule for you and be consistent with it, she says.
If you find that your partner can't seem to sacrifice quality time with their friend for quality time with you, the best thing you can do is to focus on yourself. This is actually a reflection of them, not you and we often forget this. Every relationship has ups and downs, but what you and your partner do when your relationship is in less-than-perfect shape is what matters most. So they suggest to weigh how you feel in the relationship and then decide if this is someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with. So if you and your partner are meant to be, they will appreciate everything that you do for them.
You'll know because they'll tell you. It's no surprise that communication is the key to fixing a lot of relationship issues. But communicating shouldn't only be used to solve problems. If your partner is meant for you, the Mitchems say, talking to you about anything and everything should come effortlessly for them. However, if your partner struggles with opening up or you just end up having conversations that lead to arguments, chances are they aren't meant for you. So before you even think about taking your relationship to the next level or start thinking your partner is "it," you should be on the same about things that really matter to you.
In all probability, you will not change your partner. Sometimes patience won't pay off and other times it will. If you get the sense that your partner doesn't genuinely like doing basic everyday things together, they may not be the one for you.
If you do decide to move on, you can find a partner who will. By Kristine Fellizar.Activity partner friend lover
