A new relationship is so beautiful because now you feel like you have finally met your special made; you see everything as perfect; you get the attention, care, and almost everything you want. Many relationships started well, but only a few ended well.
The expectation of many of us is to have a partner who will always be there for us when we need them the most. If you just get yourself into a fresh or new relationship, try these tips to nurture it.
1. TAKE IT SLOW.
A new relationship will make you feel like “we are getting married next week,” but my dear, don’t rush; take it slow. Build trust, gain trust, and build love first.
What you feel at the early stage of a relationship is not actually love but “infatuation,” but if you can take it slow, you will definitely nurture that infatuation into genuine love.
“Relationships never reach 48 hours; you don pack your clothes and go dey sleep inside his house, performing the role of a wife, my dear, take it slow perhaps if you want to be respected.”
2. SOCIAL MEDIA.
It is very okay to showcase your partner to the world, but in the case of a new relationship, give it time. Don’t litter your WhatsApp status and Facebook with videos and pictures of you having a cool time with your significant other. People can change at any time, so understand him or her first before broadcasting to the world.
3. UNNECESSARY REQUEST.
There is nothing wrong with making a request of your partner, but in the situation of a new relationship, you should know what to ask for. For instance, demanding sex in a relationship that is still at the infatuation stage or asking your man for financial assistance. Although there is nothing totally wrong with this, it could give you a bad impression of your partner as the relationship is still new. “Hey babe, my gas has finished, I don’t have data, and I need this, I need that urgently.” A relationship is not a loan app, nor is it a hookup business where you trade your body in exchange for money.
Moreso, sex is a product of love and should not be used as evidence of love, so give out sex only when you think the relationship is worth it and not as quickly as when the love journey has just begun.
People are entirely different, so don’t judge your past by your present. All men are not the same, and likewise, all women are not the same as you think. If you taste a sour orange, that doesn’t mean all oranges are sour; you were just unlucky to taste the sweet ones, so in this new relationship, don’t be tempted to make a comparison. Instead, focus on loving, building trust, intimacy, and productivity in the relationship.
