Things all girls should know about their first relationship
Getting into a serious relationship for the first time can be extremely daunting, especially when you have no prior relationship experience. Fear not, we are here to give you a heads up on what you need to know before getting involved in your first serious relationship.
- Clinginess is not attractive
You might think it’s great that you always want to see them and be with them, but what if they want time away from the relationship? Don’t freak out, it doesn’t mean they don’t want to be with you anymore, just that they need some personal space too.
- You don’t gave to fall madly in love straight away.
Do you have feelings for them? Do you want to spend a lot of time with them? Are they the only person you want to be with right now? If so, you’re in the right relationship. It doesn’t have to be deep, passionate love at the start. If you guys are attracted to each other and enjoy each other’s company, go forth and be a couple.
- Four minutes of waiting isn’t a good enough reason to text again.
This is another sign that you’re being too clingy. I know you’re excited to hear from them, but you need to tone it down a level if you want them to think you’re not a fucking psycho. Sending five texts in a row in less than ten minutes is never, ever okay. Never.
- Your friends still exist, you know.
Right now your relationship is the most important thing to you, and all you want to do is spend time with your lover. However, you can’t just abandon your friendships because you think you’ve found something better. If your relationship doesn’t work out you’re going to need a shoulder to cry on, but if you haven’t seen your friends in the last two months, it aint gonna be their shoulders.
- You probably won’t end up getting married.
I know, I know. You fully believe they’re ‘’the one’’, and you’ve already started naming the four children you’re going to have together. Sadly, most teenage relationships don’t have a happily ever after. But don’t get worked up about that right now. Go out, enjoy the present and live in the moment.
- Respect goes both ways.
You guys may be smothered in love that you didn’t get a chance to come up for air, and now you’re in the middle of your first heated argument with no idea what to do. Take a breath, calm down and think carefully about what you’re going to say. Lashing out isn’t going to help the situation and nobody wants to be disrespected. Get your thoughts together and put your point across in a way that isn’t disrespecting what they’re saying. The key is to listen, always listen.
- Confidence is key.
Don’t be afraid to strut your stuff when your lover is around. Confidence is sexy and says a lot about the type of person you are, I’m not saying you need to walk around like Kim Kardashian or anything, just let your partner know how damn lucky they are to have you.
