Do You Stick To Your Relationship Dealbreakers?

By

Do You Stick To Your Relationship Dealbreakers?
What characteristics are important to you in a life partner?
Know your deal breakers and learn how to follow through with them.

6. Draw your lines. Unless you draw a line in the sand, your partner will not have the opportunity to respond, change and transform. Therefore, the relationship you share will not have the opportunity to respond, change, and transform. There are no guarantees that the relationship can be saved, but without honoring your dealbreakers, I promise you that the relationship is doomed. Many people rise to the occasion. Many relationships become stronger and more intimate.

7. Know when to move on. And finally, if the relationship cannot be saved, then you will have moved on with more dignity, personal power and a commitment to yourself. Remember, your most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. Don't ever sacrifice that — you live with you forever!

Usually, I'm a bit of a scrooge when it comes to V-day. I reject the commercialism and pressure that this holiday puts on couples and singles alike. I encourage people to simply enjoy a day that celebrates love without caving in to the pressures to buy expensive flowers or go to expensive restaurants. For some reason, this year I feel differently.  I ... Read more
