8 Mistakes A Woman Must Not Make In A Relationship

Common mistakes a woman should not make that would ruin their happy relationship.

‘I am so loyal to him. Still, he ignores me.’
‘I have every quality to become his wife. Still, he doesn’t want to marry and keeps on telling me he needs time.’

I have to hear many questions like this from my students. It’s not that I spend a lot of time with them even after class; it’s because they feel comfortable to talk to me, to open their heart out to me. Within a decade of tenure, I have seen my students falling in love, suffering from heartbreak and then moving on with someone else.

Breakups have become pretty common and this trend is unhealthy for our society. Failing in a relationship or seeing their peers suffering from a broken relationship, a lot of people are becoming commitment-phobic these days.

This is hampering their physiological and psychological health too. In turn, it decreases their productivity. To be honest, a relationship doesn’t depend on how much loyal you are to your partner or how much good you are to be a spouse.

These are the base, upon which a relationship is based. But maintaining a relationship is a completely different ball game. Yes, you might be loyal to your partner but if he is ignoring you, there must be some other reasons.

You might be nagging or too nosy or something which irritates him. If he needs time to marry, that means he is having issues living with you or he is having some issues of his own too, which he is probably scared to discuss with you. Communication is necessary.

Both the partners should understand each other. Yes, in a relationship, both the partners can make mistakes. Some people say it to their partners, some don’t.

In this article, I will be talking about the common mistakes a woman makes in a relationship which eventually causes such bitterness that the relationship finally withers away.

Here are 8 mistakes which every woman should be cautious about if she wants to maintain her relationship.

(1) Being a Drama-Queen:

No matter how much a man might enjoy watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S or The Big Bang Theory, he hates drama in his personal life.

Don’t act like a ‘Drama-Queen.’ If you do not like something, tell him openly. If you are scared of something, just say it; don’t scream as if the world is ending right at this moment.

If you are upset, explain it to your partner. To err is human. So it’s okay for your partner to make some mistake. Don’t make a huge issue out of it. Sit together and discuss it.

This will save a lot of your time and energy too and things will be sorted. Don’t ward off your partner by making a scene out of everything.

He will get scared and eventually might leave you because nobody wants to stay in a relationship where one cannot get peace of mind.

(2) Trying to change him:

Didn’t he like the shirt you bought for him? It’s okay. It’s his choice. You want him to keep a long beard but he is not comfortable with it?

Leave it. You fell in love with him like that. So, why do you try to change him? You two fell in love and got committed after knowing each other.

We all have flaws. We are not perfect. I am not. He is not. You are not, either. There might be a couple of things you don’t like about him.

Tell him that and come to a conclusion. If he doesn’t want to change, leave it. Focus on the things which made you fall in love with him. If you try to change him, he is bound to run away. Imagine if he does the same thing with you. Will you not leave too?

(3) Not being confident:

Don’t suffer from the lack of confidence. Men love smart and confident women. You don’t need to be told always how good you look or how intelligent you are.

You are beautiful and intelligent. This is the reason he loves you. Isn’t this enough?

(4) Needing him everywhere:

We all love our partners. But that doesn’t mean they should be with us everywhere. Be strong and independent. Give him his space too.

If you are too clingy or too nagging, he will feel suffocated and I wouldn’t blame him if he calls it a quit. Don’t make him your doormat. Stand with him.

(5) Lying: Men hate liars.

It’s not just about being an infidel. Do not lie to him ever, be it regarding buying a dress or meeting a friend.

If you know he doesn’t like something, then explain it to him; it’s your life. He will understand. You might not tell him but don’t lie.

(6) Bothering your man when he’s with his friends:

People know that you are his beloved. So, don’t keep on calling him when he’s hanging out with his friends. You don’t need to establish your presence there by disturbing him.

If he spends a day with them, let him be. He needs that. Loving doesn’t mean spending each and every moment together. Let him be on his own and he will love you more.

(7) Forcing him to bond with your peers:

We are different. All of us are. We might not like some people. Just because he loves you, that doesn’t mean he will love all your peers. He might dislike some.

Yes, he should be polite but don’t expect him to bond with each and every people in your family and friend circle. Give him that liberty to choose the kind of people he wants to interact with. He will feel comfortable.

(8) Not pampering him but expecting him to do the same:

8 Mistakes A Woman Must Not Make In A Relationship

You love the way he showers you with gifts or buys you ice cream when you are down. He needs some pampering too. He too has his issues and he needs you; a little pampering won’t be a problem.

Perhaps you can make him a good dinner or get him the jersey of his favorite team. He is a human being and he deserves to be pampered too.

It’s easy to get into a relationship but it’s hard to sustain it. Don’t make these mistakes. Then you will see, things are going just fine. Have faith in yourself and in your partner. Just remember these little things and keep loving.

How To Not Be Clingy In A Relationship: 5 Tips To Manage Neediness

How Not Be Clingy In Relationship

When you try to hold on to the one you love, do they slip away like grains of sand? Maybe you need to loosen your grip a little bit more and learn how to not be clingy in a relationship.

We know how much it hurts to be called clingy or needy, just because one cares too deeply about another person and wants to be a part of their lives. With all the atrocious things humans inflict upon each other, does the need for love and care pose that big a problem?

Sadly, according to a study, clinginess and lack of personal space are the top relationship turn-offs. So, when does it go from sweet and nurturing to overbearing and smothering? And how can you manage your need for reassurance so that it doesn’t push your loved one away?

Does love mean letting go of the one you love or holding on to them for dear life? Does love mean the little things you do together or the big dramatic gestures? What love means to you exactly?

As we all are different, so are our convictions, thoughts, and principles. Even when it comes to love, the great equalizer, our perspectives vary. For some, love means holding hands and taking selfies together while making weird faces, and for some, love might mean deep conversations about life and relationships.

However, as long as you and your partner are on the same page regarding what love means to you as a couple, you are golden.

And as the zodiac signs influence our personality and behavioral traits, they are a sure shot-shot way to know what love means to you and someone else. This way, you can understand yo

What Is A Throuple Relationship

Intimacy might not look the same for everyone, as intimacy is not really a black and white concept. What defines intimacy for you, might not have the same appeal for someone else. Society is changing as we know it, and it's becoming more and more accepting of every sort of relationship and love today. Amongst all the types of relationships, throuple relationships are one of them.

The spectrum of romantic relationships is gradually widening, and people are slowly beginning to recognize and respect throuple relationships, instead of ridiculing them or dismissing them as immoral and dirty. Even though we have come a long way, we still have a long way to go.

So, what is a throuple relationship, what it is like to be in a throuple, and how does a throuple relationship work?

Love. The one thing everyone wants. The one thing everyone seeks. Love is the closest thing to magic in our dull, dreary, gray hued lives. Love lights up the darkness in our hearts and makes us feel warm in the chilly weather of loneliness. No wonder most of us are so desperate to love and be loved. We frantically run around looking for the one, but we need to stop looking for love and let it find us. 

We need to stop being so afraid of being left alone. We need to stop being afraid of being strong. We need to stop being driven by fear and pain. You need to stop looking for love and let it find you. I know the lump in the throat and the heaviness in the heart is becoming unbearable. I know how badly you want to be loved. I know how much you deserve to be loved…unconditionally. And that is exactly why I am telling you, you need

Why We Hurt The Ones We Love The Most: 19 Harsh Reasons

hurting someone you love

Love hurts. No, not like those cheesy Hollywood movies or romance novels. Real love is a lot messier, filthy, and painful. No matter how much you may love someone, you either get hurt or end up hurting someone you love.

As the old saying goes, we hurt the ones we love the most. Yes, it sounds terrible, but there is actually some science to it. When we love someone, whether it’s romantic or platonic, we let our guards down and become honest, open, and vulnerable with each other. While this should make our relationship stronger, in reality, it creates the ground where we hurt the ones we love, whether intentionally or unintentionally. 

We fight. 
We argue. 
We shout. 
We ignore them. 
We blame them for our mistakes.
