Relationships nowadays are like clothes people change everyday and it has become a norm in recent times. There is the freedom to love and move on if things are not working out but how do you ensure that in your next relationship you do not get your time wasted again.
I have put together tips that can help you understand a person before starting a relationship with him/her.
1. Understand yourself. When you know yourself, you understand what motivates you to resist bad habits and develop good ones. You'll have the insight to know which values and goals activate your willpower, tolerance, and understanding of others. Your awareness of your own foibles and struggles can help you empathize with others. (Ref: psychology today).
2. Never accept or give excuses for things you did not accept in your previous relationship because at the end of the day those things will end up ending the relationship in the long run.
3. Be you. Being another person is more taxing. Be you and let that person see you for you.
4. Be open to every conversation. This is one of the best ways of knowing people's beliefs, way of life, and thinking. This will help you see if there is a need to even take a step further to end it right there. Be patient during the conservation, do not force your opinion on anyone, be calm and accept anything the person says because that is what he/she beliefs and so it is better to allow them to air their views and beliefs to the fullest.
5. Bring up false relationship scenarios to hear what they have to say about life situations.
6. Ask about family background.
7. Ask about religious background and beliefs. As you know we all have where we want to fit in religiously so asking about it is very important.
8. Ask briefly about their previous relationships. The way you do it matters, be polite and hit the question were needed. This will give you an insight into the previous love life of that person. Some may lie but it is part of the process.
9. Do not be quick to fall in love again. Remember you don't want what happened in your previous relationship happening again.
10. Pray about it and be open-minded to not investing so much time in the beginning. Do not force anything.
