Time between dating and relationship
A friend in another city invited you to visit for a weekend? It's tempting to invite your partner to come along, but realize that you don't need to experience these things with him or her, especially if it's something you've been wanting to do since long before you met.
1) Spend time with friends -- without your partner.
You genuinely like striving to be the perfect partner. But while you're submerging yourself in the life of this other person, you may not be making your own the priority it should be.
How do you find the balance between giving to your partner and holding onto yourself in the process?
If he or she walks when you do express yourself, better that than losing yourself to someone unwilling to hear you and meet you halfway.
4) Map out plans for your future irrespective of your significant other.
A good relationship will definitely withstand you taking the time to honor commitments to people outside it. 8) Go immediately from one relationship to another.
