Not all advice is good advice. Especially when it comes to relationship. Here is some advice that you should never follow.
1. Find someone who can take care of you
The only gain you should seek in a relationship is emotional gain. Find someone who can make you happy, not wealthy.
2. You should win every argument
In a relationship, conflict is inevitable, but you should always find a way to compromise. The aim is not to win every argument, but to make your relationship work through mutual understanding and respect.
3. Don’t rock the boat
On the other hand, you should not sweep conflict under the rug, fearing that your partner might leave you if you express your concerns.
4. There’s no privacy in a relationship
Sharing your secrets with your partner should be a choice, not a given. Invading someone’s privacy is a breach of trust that can seriously damage your relationship.
5. Lower your standards
If you are in your 30’s and single, people probably tell you that you should lower your standards. You shouldn’t. It’s better to stay single than be with someone who is wrong for you. You’re the only one who knows what’s best for you.
People giving you this kind of advice might have the best intentions, but this doesn’t mean you have to listen. The only rules you should follow are the ones that work for you and your partner. Please, share this!
