Love your time alone.
Enjoying your alone time is key, whether you are single or happily coupled. It gives us time to clear our heads, get work done and practice self-care.
Keep jealousy at bay.
Jealousy can lead to possessiveness in a relationship. There is no need to compare yourself to other people, hold your head high.
Manage your finances well.
Having an idea of what your spending limits are, is extremely helpful when planning dates. In fact, some of the best dates cost no money at all.
Finding healthy ways to cope with stress is important in all aspects of life. This will help prevent you from snapping at your partner.
Master using time effectively.
Putting things off to a later date because you have made plans with your significant will bite you in the back.
Pursue your passions.
Whatever you were passionate about before you entered your relationship must still be there. If your partner can’t support your dreams and passions, they are not worth your time.
Check your baggage
Maybe you are still in the healing process of the previous relationship. Being aware of the baggage your carry with you can help in fostering a healthy relationship.
Improve your communication skills.
Being able to communicate your wants, needs and what can be improved on are the building blocks of a healthy, lasting relationship.
Being yourself from the start of a relationship will help you avoid wasting your time with the wrong partner.
