Don’t sabotage a new relationship
If you’re caught up in the glow of a new affair, avoid these five potential pitfalls to keep the love bright:
Don’t start a new relationship while still mourning an old one. If you’re still pining for a former love, you won’t be fully open to experiencing now.
Don’t focus on someone’s potential; instead, be more concerned with the reality of who he or she is. Bringing up attitudes about commitment or children in the first three dates could spell disaster.
Don’t get stuck in the high of early courtship for too long. If you wait too long for a proper commitment, the relationship could lose its way.
Don’t hold back your true self. Hiding your personality sends your potential partner mixed messages.
Don’t try to commit to a relationship when you’re not really ready to settle down.
