15. To Commit Right Off The Bat
If you start dating a guy and expect him to propose by the end of three months into the relationship, then you have been watching one too many episodes of The Bachelor. Or The Bachelorette. Or whatever stupid reality TV show that entails someone proposing after the season is over. Did you ever stop and that that these relationships that we see on TV are not real? These shows have high ratings and make a fortune because they capitalize on the ideas of women have of romance. These are ideas that are founded in fantasy, and rarely in reality.
A guy needs to get to know you for a long period of time first before he decides that is he is going to spend the rest of his life with you. Relationships that build gradually over time are usually the ones with the best longevity. Typically, the bitter divorces happen when people get married too soon before they even know what they are signing up for. Don’t let your romantic emotions cloud your judgement.
14. To Have The Ability To Read Your Mind
Not being direct with what is bothering you causes a huge miscommunication that can prove damaging in relationships. This is a form of disengagement when you withdraw from a conflict but then secretly build resentment and just hoping that it will blow over. The truth of the matter is that he will probably repeat the same type of behavior that pisses you off and the cycle of you becoming upset will keep happening all over again.
Passive immobility is when you expect your partner to read your mind and makes it impossible for couples to resolve conflict. Sometimes people just need to be reminded when they are acting like jerks. Of course, he owes you the same courtesy when you start acting out in ways that he does not like.
