5. Go into It Knowing It’s Hard
So many people slip into a relationship with their opposite type thinking that it is going to be easy – it isn’t. It is going to be hard and you’ve got to understand that. You’ve got to realize that any relationship you get into is going to be worth fighting for – and while you might end up fighting a lot in the beginning, it’s all growing pains.
6. Don’t Take Each Other for Granted
The biggest problems in a lot of relationships is that you get comfortable and you just start to take for granted that your boy or girlfriend is going to stick around, no matter what. You can’t expect your difficult relationship to improve unless you put in the work and nobody is going to stay in a relationship where they aren’t happy – keep that in mind!
