Whether you are in a new relationship or trying to maintain and improve an existing one, it is important to note that it takes just a few mistakes to completely ruin the love that you have with a partner. Some of the worst things you can do to the health of your relationship are the following: not keeping enough eye contact, not being trusting enough, having jealousy issues, trying to fix problems by shouting instead of talking and a few other things that are going to be listed in this article.
Not Making Eye Contact
Eye contact is one of the most important things in every relationship. Eye contact means that you trust your partner and you believe in the future of your relationship. Without having proper eye contact, you are going to slowly kill your relationship.
Bringing Bad Experiences from Past Relationships
As human beings, we are all different in our unique way, which means that if you had some bad experiences from your past relationship there is a chance that you could bring your past to your current relationship. Try to leave your past behind and enjoy the present with your lover.
No Trusting Your Partner
Trust is also one of the most important things in any relationship; therefore, it means that without it you are much closer to breaking up than you might think. Your relationship doesn't have a future if you can't learn to trust your partner.
No one likes to hear complaints all the time, and neither does your lover. It is okay to complain about something occasionally, but if you repeat the same things over and over again, that can place your relationship in jeopardy.
Not Celebrating Special Occasions
Every couple has their own special and important dates, such as their anniversary or his or her birthday. If your partner is constantly forgetting these special dates, you should defiantly talk to him about that before it is too late.
Try to Be More Interested In Your Partner
Everyone is narcissistic to a certain degree, but if your lover only ever talks about himself, that could be a red flag. You should try to analyze your partner and try to determine whether they are the right fit for you.
Improve Your Sex Life
Sex is a really important thing in every relationship and not having a healthy (and frequent) sex life could be a problem. Don't use sex as a punishment or reward, use it because you want to enjoy it with your partner.
Don't Try to Change Your Partner
As a partner, you should know that it is okay to tell your lover what is good for him or how to improve himself. However, you shouldn't try to change him even if it's the right thing for him. Give your partner space and he will do it on his own.
Having Fights in Public
The worst thing that could happen to any couple is to have a fight or argument in public. It is embarrassing for you and for those around you in that moment. Leave the discussion for later when you will be at home.
Being a Pushover
Just as fighting in public is bad, not having a discussion at all could also bring troubles in your relationship. Disagreeing with your partner is a normal thing, and that is why setting boundaries is a requirement to having a healthy and fulfilling relationship.
What About Forgiving?
We all make mistakes from time to time, but the key to a happy relationship is to forgive your lover. Do note that some mistakes are not worth forgiving (such as cheating), but most of them are and you should always keep that in mind.
If you are too jealous or controlling towards your partner that means that you got a huge problem. You cannot expect that you own your partner. They are an individual just like you are, and they need their own space and privacy.
Acting Like You Are Single
One of the worst things you can do in your relationship is to act like you are single (while still having a partner). If you are in that kind of relationship, you should definitely talk to your partner about how to remedy this problem.
Having No Interests or Hobbies
If you have this type of problem where your partner has no interests at all, you should seriously talk with him or her, and in some cases, you could visit a therapist (in case your partner is depressed). Try to find out what is going on with your partner so that you can help them.
You Can Always Improve Your Relationship
The best thing about all of the things written above is that you can easily improve your relationship by working on these negative behaviors. You should always talk to your partner about everything and together you can find a solution for anything.
