Don’t become isolated
When you are dating, remember not to become so isolated to the person that you exclude your friends and family. Unfortunately, it is very easy to do become attached to your honey because a new romance brings excitement, fun, hope and a lot emotional energy that you have been lacking. Most people find that they want to spend all their time with their new interest even if it means forgoing others. However, you have to find balance between love and life. If the relationship doesn’t work out, you will need your friends and families for support so do not isolate yourself at the exclusion of others that are important to you.
Listen to friends
Often when we hook up in a relationship we become starry-eyed and have a bit of trouble distinguishing reality, especially, if you have been dating for awhile. Listen to your friends and family and trust their input on your relationship. Most of the time, they can see things that you cannot and they can help you see straight. If they tell you some things about the person you are dating that are unfavorable, don’t immediately discount them. You do not have to agree wholeheartedly but try to find out if there is any truth to what they are saying. Remember, your friends are not going to try to sabotage your relationship so knowing that, try to see if there may be any truth in their concerns.
Confident but not Arrogant
There is a big difference between confidence and arrogance and the main difference is confidence is an attractive train, and arrogance is ugly. There is no mystery why men and women seek a confident partner; confidence is an attractive characteristic. Walking with your head held high and feeling good about yourself is attractive and people tend to be drawn towards that charisma. Confidence is good, and a great quality to have but don’t confuse confidence with arrogance. Arrogance sends the message that you are above others. Arrogant people are often rude, curt, and unfriendly, and all of those characteristics are unattractive. Nobody is too good, too attractive or too anything and having that mentality is a turnoff.
