Bad things to do in a relationship

This is what usually happens when you get too comfortable with someone — you simply stop trying. You stop putting time and thought into birthdays, anniversaries, and romantic dates. You stop trying to impress them or make them feel good or show that you love them. Relationships take work, so even if just one person stops trying it will inevitably crash and burn.

Taking shots at each other is a horrible thing to do in any form of a relationship. In so many relationships, people lose who they are. No matter how in love you may be with a person, you should still always have yourself and cherish your independence. You meet someone new and you enter the puppy love stage where you always want to see them, talk to them, or be talking about them. But you should never, ever forget about your friends.

Your friends were there first. Always make time for the other important people in your life. There should be a balance. We all get sidetracked, we all have friends and family we make time for, we all have jobs that demand our attention. We may be out at the bar with our ificant other but spend majority of the time talking to other people. We might be out somewhere and forget to answer their text.

But nothing hurts more in a relationship than being forgotten about, and worse, ignored. If they voice a concern, listen. Hear the issue from their point of view and try to come up together with a resolution. When you love someone, that person is usually and should be a priority in your life.

Just as you become an important priority in theirs. You expect the ificance of one another to be reciprocated. But it can be hard watching this important person put other things in front of you. When they hear of something exciting, they call their best friend first. When they find a cool place to go out, they tell their brother. When a crazy story happens to them, they text it in their group chat. We all do it. But snooping can only lead to problems. Either accept them or leave. So you just have to accept them or keep walking. After a long time being with someone, this can easily happen.

You take shots below the belt during minor arguments. Your sensitivity for them and their feelings dissipates. And that will never work well in a relationship. This is a major NO-NO in an argument. In a relationship, you should only be focusing on the present. No matter how brutal a fight might get, you should never bring up an event from the past. You have to leave it behind. If your boyfriend cheated on you, if your girlfriend did something fucked up that hurt you at one point, you have absolutely no right to bring it up again and use it as ammunition.

You have to leave the past where it belongs. If you forgive them for something and you both decide to move on, that means no bringing it back up, no matter how well it might work in your favor at the moment. Another thing similar to bringing up the past is holding grudges against each other. Someone in a couple might feel justified to do something immoral just because their boyfriend did something similar before.

There is no such thing as keeping score in a relationship. You cannot base your actions and decisions on past occurrences. You should never shoot down their dreams or goals, no matter how far-fetched they may be. You should always be there for them, even if they make a stupid decision, to help pick them up and dust them off after. You should always be their rock, their unwavering support system, no matter what.
