Let’s call them “the firsts.” Before getting into a real relationship with someone, you’ll typically spend the first few dates in public settings, either at restaurants or bars or bowling alleys.
So deciding to invite them into your home can be nerve-racking, not because they’re going to rob you—hopefully you have a better judge of character than that—but because your home can say a about you. If your floors look like they haven’t been vacuumed in five years, it might come as a red flag, especially if you’ve only lived there for six months.
When you first start dating someone, there's an overwhelming sensation of “new” in the air.Actually listening to my boyfriend's words and accepting his compliments have brought me a new sense of joy that friends and co-workers just aren't able to provide.I stand a bit taller and my steps are bolder, not because I didn't have any self-confidence before, but because the moment I realized someone saw the exact value in me that I see in myself, I felt special.It’s brand new, which means nothing is set in stone yet.If you want to make it to the next thirty days, there are some things you’ll need to be prepared for.
It is this type of thinking that can literally kill a relationship before it even has a chance to get started.
