1. Too much dependence
Never depend too much on your partner for anything. This is a sign of low self esteem and insecurity. You don’t need his/her approval for each and everything. The more independent you are, the more interesting you seem. Have your own life.
2. Lack of compromise
Learn to compromise. It’s alright if you don’t get the final say once in while. You can’t always put your needs before your partner’s. There needs to be a compromise in every relationship. Selfishness will only lead to trouble.
3. Too much jealousy
This not an attractive quality at all. Try to be cool. Jealousy is a sign of insecurity. Don’t accuse your partner just for talking to another girl/boy. Even if you are jealous, don’t show it.
4. Trying too much
Don’t ever forego your happiness just for the sake of pleasing your partner. He/She might be grateful at first, but slowly your partner will start ignoring your efforts and will take you for granted.
5. Lack of time
Set aside some time just for your partner. Go on dates at least once a week. Call them everyday when you are away. Even if you are at work, send him/her texts in between just to show your partner that you care.
6. Lack of trust
Without trust, being in a relationship is useless. Be open towards each other. Keep constant communication. Find out why you don’t trust your partner and try to clarify it with him.
7. Difference in goals
The two of you might have different goals. One of you might be serious and the other casual. One of you might be more interested in your career than your relationship, while the other has relationship as a main priority. When this happens, try to find a balance. You can’t just force it upon your partner. You need to be cool. If he is too casual, then you need to cut down on some of the stuff that you do for them. Let then know that they can’t have everything if they are not serious. But you need to be cool about this.
8. Lack of communication
Communication is very important in every relationship. You need to communicate your feelings, emotions, expectations etc. Only then will you be able to know how the other person is. So no matter what, you need to have constant communication with your partner. This is one of the most important rules that you need to follow.
