#5 Don’t get possessive Possessiveness is never a good trait in a relationship.
Possessiveness is a sign of insecurity and jealousy, and these are usually big red flags in any relationship, new or old.
#7 You don’t have to say I-Love-You Just because you’re in a relationship with your new lover, it doesn’t mean you have to start saying those “three magical words” to each other as soon as you decide to go out with each other.
By saying it out first, you’re subtly coercing your partner into saying it back.
[Read: How to deal with relationship insecurity] Remember that you’re still in a new relationship and can’t order or even request your mate to avoid people or avoid going out by themselves.
Even if you do feel jealous about your lover’s partying habits or the amount of time they spend with a group of friends, learn to suck it up and hold it in.
Right now, you’re only a small part of each other’s lives, so don’t give yourself more importance than you deserve.
If you find your new lover incompatible, end the relationship instead of suffering a nervous breakdown due to frustrations or insecurities.
And whether your new love says it back or not, it’s only going to lead to awkwardness in the air because it’s all happening so fast.
Take it slow and wait a while, maybe a month or so before you say it out loud.
But don’t try booking a hotel room or ask your new lover to slide over to the back seat for some heavy petting unless it happens without any preplanning.
It could make your partner think you’re just in it for the sex and lead to loss of trust.
