There isn’t anything better than a new relationship. However, it is important you sort through the important things to do in a new relationship. In this post I am going to share some things I have learnt and a bit about the start of my new relationship.

A new relationship is exciting and exhilarating and our minds don’t always function properly because we are so pumped with hormones but it’s important to enter a serious relationship with a clear head and a direction.
Know what you want
Knowing the type of relationship you want is one of the most important things. You need to know what you are looking for before thinking about getting into a new romance so the likelihood of one of you getting hurt is lowered. Also, talk about what you want from each other. By being open with each other about your expectations, you can go into it together on the same page.
Don’t be shy talking about your likes and dislikes
One of the toughest things for me was talking about my likes and dislikes. I always found it so awkward but if I don’t tell him, how will he know. Remember, no one is a mind reader! You won’t get what you want from him if you don’t tell him. I had a tendency to shy away from this one in the past, but when you find someone you are comfortable with, it’s not awkward at all and I love that about my boyfriend right now. I don’t feel uncomfortable to tell him anything now, even if it was awkward to start off with. All they want to do is make you happy and be happy with you so communicate these things and you will learn quickly how much better your relationship will be.
Side note, I’m not only talking about the bedroom stuff… I mean everything!!!
Communication is key!!
Watching other relationships, including some of my own, fall apart due to lack of communication has taught me this one. As I said in the previous point, we are not mind readers. Talk, talk, talk… Don’t think I need to say more on this point.
Don’t jump in without thinking first
I have been a big time culprit of this one in the past. That’s what you get for being a hopeless romantic. Entering a new relationship, and a serious one at that, is a big thing. You are choosing to share yourself with another person and doing that without being level headed can be detrimental and hurt like hell. ‘Don’t run before you can walk’ was something my mum always said to me and it has helped me enter serious things a little more carefully. Guard your heart and be as sure as you can be that you are giving it to someone who is worthy of it.
Don’t forget to have fun
Relationships are about having fun together, so don’t forget to be goofy and do crazy things that make you laugh. One of the things I did with my boyfriend was go and play mini golf. To be honest we both suck at it but after kicking his butt we laughed so much about it. Serious times are important and need to be there but sometimes we can get caught up in being serious and forget how to let your hair down and have a blast.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and these tips help you when entering a new relationship. I’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
Until next time…
