When we begin a relationship, we all seek advice from our friends or family. We know we have no idea what we are doing but we must understand that love is not planned. We have to solve things ourselves since relations are very different and each problem is unique and therefore has a different solution.
But it is true that there are times when we are led to believe myths about how the perfect couple is . We created expectations which are then impossible to fulfill since they are false. Let's try to clarify some.
5 Myths about relationships that are false and that create expectations
1- Happy couples have the same interests
Each person has fun in a way and has their own interests. Do not try to make your partner like the same as you, or think that because they have different interests you will not have anything to talk about. In fact, this difference will make you more attractive to your partner.
2- Happy couples love each other's friends
You can not demand that your partner adore your friends and family. Just try to make sure no one feels offended.
3- In the beginning there must be passion
Relationships not They always start with a crazy crush. Apart from passion, you have to give importance to feel comfortable and safe with your partner. In a strong relationship it is more important to be able to laugh together and trust each other than passion.
4- Happy couples never quarrel
Fights arise when something matters to you so, usually, couples who do not have them are often destined to fail. It is not about insults, but about small fights that teach you to understand.
5- They are always together
Couples do not spend all day together. Everyone needs to spend some time alone and needs personal space. You should not blame yourself because it does not mean you do not want your partner. On the contrary, this time will only help you maintain your feelings.
In the movies and advertisements, they show us couples that seem perfect and that meet the characteristics mentioned above but do not be fooled. These couples are nothing like reality. Perfection does not exist and small defects are what make our love real.
