Is a Dream Relationship

When people are in love, too often they think about making the relationship last for a long time. This is especially true for those who are not yet married but serious in their commitment to each other. It’s natural to do this because getting in and out of one relationship to another can also be quite tiring.

So if you ask whether a person can have the relationship of his or her dreams, the answer is yes, it is always possible. But there are certain factors to consider in order to achieve this. Remember that people have different personalities and it’s only when you get a better understanding of your partner’s character traits that you’ll be able to decide if you’re meant to be together.

A major consideration is to determine the type of behavior you will allow and not allow in your life. In this case, you will have to envision yourself in various situations and learn how to deal with reactions of your partner.

Express yourself. This is one area where many people find difficult to be honest due to certain fears. But this is a mistake because how would your partner know and understand your message if you’re not being honest to yourself and most especially to him or her.

Don’t worry about the negative reaction you will get once you say what you want to say. Just as long as you’re conveying your message across and you’re honest with your thoughts and feelings, there’s nothing to be stressful about.

Another area where you should set boundaries is tolerance. Okay, so you’ve been told to be more tolerant of your partner and accept him or her wholeheartedly. But it won’t hurt as well if you tell him or her that you’re done with the unbearable behavior. Sometimes, it helps that you simply tell your partner that you’re not tolerating a certain trait although you have different values. This is one of the best ways to let you keep your dignity and sanity and earn the respect of the person you love and care about.

Setting boundaries also mean deciding that you’re not going to let another person mess up your life. If, for instance, you’ve been dating someone who’s constantly late or doesn’t show up making you look like a fool, it’s a sign that you’re not being respected. For women, this is most crucial and emotionally stressful but then again, you have to learn to say no. It’s easy for men sometimes to apologize and promise not to repeat the blunder but if they see that you’re lax and not bothered by their behavior, they’re likely to do it again.
