So, you have a new romantic partner. It is an exciting time, right? You are happy with your choice of other half and, frankly, you could not wait for them to ask you out (or that could even be vice versa!). You are eager to make the relationship work, and you want to do lots of exciting things with them and enable the both of you to outwardly show the world how happy you are together. It has even crossed your mind how cool your Instagram is going to look with all the different pictures you are going to upload of the things you are doing.
With a new partner comes exciting times, but it is also a time when you may be wary of stepping too far into the other person’s personal life. It is easy to get drawn into their past and ask about previous partners, but a lot of people tend to feel uncomfortable when questions into their past relationships are asked. This can either be because the relationship ended badly or that your new partner is keen for a new slate and to move on from their past.
If your relationship evolves to such a level that you decide to move in together, then when questions about their past and previous partners are brought up on a consistent basis, there is a good chance that arguments will ensue, making your relationship weaker and prone to the pair of you fighting about past aspects in each other’s lives. To move in with your partner you really need to think about whether you are both compatible enough to share the same things, live in the same house and practically do a lot of things with each other. Another aspect of moving in together is that you will have to take all of your belongings to your new home, and to remove any potential stress and worries you can get in touch with moving companies who can help you alleviate any pressure.
With a new partner, you will also meet their friends and family so remember that first impressions do count for a lot of what people think of you. When meeting people close to your other half for the first time, you should take the time to dress well, make decent conversation and show how right you are for your partner. After all, as these people are likely to be extremely close to your other half, you want them to think well of you.
When deciding to get into a relationship, it is important not to rush into a decision. You should get to know your potential partner on a fairly close level before deciding if a relationship is the best thing for you. This is especially true if you have recently come out of a long term relationship as it is likely you will want some space and time to get your life back on track after what could have been a stressful and unpleasant time for you.
