Got Butterflies? 3 Rules For Your New Relationship [EXPERT]
Be careful what you do in the first few weeks!

If you are yourself, you are comfortable and natural and this goes a lot further than pretending to be someone you're not. You will come across as phony and also confuse your partner when you stop with the charade. If your goal is to be in a long-term relationship, then you would want to know that your new partner really likes you for who you truly are and accepts you as is ...

2. Be clear. In the early stages you want to make sure that you have very open communication. If you are always clear about your goals, your likes, your dislikes, and your feelings, you will always know where you stand in that relationship. It is not a time to "hide" things from your partner.

If you have certain habits and regular activities such as smoking, or a regular card night with the boys, or going to Church on Sundays, then you want to be honest and upfront and share with your partner things that are important to you and anything that is routine in your life. It is extremely important to communicate and be very clear about your relationship goals. 3 Ways 'Love' Benefits Your Health

If you are not looking for a long-term relationship or you are only interested in a marriage partner and want to have kids and a family right away, you want to make sure that you are on the same page. This doesn't mean that you scare this person off by sharing popular baby names for boys or looking in the Real Estate section of your newspaper asking what your partner thinks of the new house you'd like to move into.

It just means that before you start to invest time, feelings and financial resources on your partner, make sure that you agree on the important things and that you share core values.

3. Go with the flow. Communication and trust are the foundations of any successful relationship. You can read all about the do's and don'ts and read all the rules out there about dating and still be completely lost or feel that it may not apply to your situation. Everyone's views on relationships vary slightly, or greatly, so the best advice I can share with you is to go with the flow and also listen to your gut. What's The Relationship Between The Brain & Porn?

You should always be in tune with how this person makes you feel. What does your gut say? What are your thoughts about this person and what are your thoughts about relationships in general? If you've been hurt in the past, do not make the mistake of stereotyping your partner as a cheater, or treating them as if they're guilty because you lack trust.

Learn from your past experiences and don't repeat them. You are in a new situation with a totally different person, so playing the comparison game is not good. Remember to always have fun and take things lightly. This is an exciting time, so enjoy every moment and don't forget these essential tips to help you through this amazing time!
