Now that Valentine’s Day has come and gone – maybe you DID find the man or woman of your dreams. Here are some very useful tips from SHI Symbol’s Guest Poster, Liberty Kontranowski as you start to get to know one another a bit more…
Congratulations – it’s finally happened – after proudly proclaiming you’re single, happy and interested, you’ve found that perfect match.
Now the real fun begins. As you get to know each other better and take your relationship to the next level, there are some important matters to consider. Here are four quick tips for making the transition from a couple of singles to a couple of lovebirds as painless and easy-going as possible.
- Take your time – There’s no rush here. Getting to know someone takes time and yes, it takes work. Be prepared to be patient – some people are hard to loosen up, especially in those oh-so-cautious early days of a new relationship. Go into your budding romance with your eyes wide open (though it goes without saying they’ll be somewhat blinded by that heart-thumping potential new-love phenomenon) and consider whether this is a person you want to share your time – and possibly the rest of your life – with. If the answer is “Heck, yeah!” then keep reading. If not, put your SHISymbol back on and give it another go!
- Put it all out there – Okay, so maybe you won’t share everything (do you really need to explain your irrational fear of hamsters from the get-go? Probably not.), but there are plenty of things you’ll want to lay on the table early on. What are your values? What kind of work do you do? What are your goals? What would make you most happy in life? Exploring these topics with a potential mate can draw you closer and make your bond even more intimate.
- And speaking of intimacy…One of the best benefits of going from friends to lovers is hitting the sheets. However, it’s incredibly important to be very frank with each other about your sexual past. You’ll want to discuss any STDs you may have and ask your partner to do the same. If unsure, undergo testing to screen for diseases and seek medical treatment if necessary. If erectile dysfunction is an issue, there are plenty of safe and effective options, including online pharmacies where you can buy Cialis and other personal ED medications from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
- Enjoy the process – There’s no denying that being single is sometimes easier than being part of a couple. But there’s nothing quite like the feeling of belonging that a committed relationship brings, and soon all your hard work to strengthen your bond will prove completely worthwhile. Working through any issues as soon as they crop up is key as are the core elements of honesty, trust, passion and fun. Remember to value each other and listen more than you talk.
It’s such a great feeling to find “the one” and following these tips will set you on the path to ever-lasting happiness – right where you belong!
