From dating to relationship
But getting too far into the nitty gritty of ensuring everything is equal can actually cause more trouble than it’s worth. “It’s like saying, ‘I’m willing to accept some disappointment and pain as long as the person I love most in this world suffers, too,'” she says.“Whether it’s the emotional work of a relationship or those awful chores, no couple can split them fairly,” Newbold says. People in love give generously, not because they’re told to, but because it feels good. Instead, you should be looking for “third alternatives.” “That’s when you each let go of your first idea and look together for a third option that makes both of you at least as happy as your first one made you,” she says.“Don’t ever go into a long-term relationship, especially marriage, thinking you are going to change them,” Hunt advises.
“The dating world is competitive and few people have the time to constantly pursue someone who is not demonstrating any interest,” says Anderson.So, proceed with caution if it seems too good to be true.“The brain plays interesting tricks on us, sending love glitter through our brain and body, which then convinces us that this person is ‘the one,'” Hunter says.“I have worked with many couples that made forgiving each other way more difficult than it already is because of the forgetting clause in the statement.‘Forgive and let go’ is better advice.” While it does take time to get over being hurt, even hours, days, months, and years cannot necessarily guarantee that you will be OK.
