Expectations Can Help Or Hurt Your Relationship

We’ve said it many times that it’s unreasonable to expect your partner to be a mind reader. Having a connection is one thing….but thinking they’ve got a crystal ball in their back pocket is something totally different. Far to often couples are unsuccessful in their relationship because they don’t have a good grasp on expectations.

Expectations can lead either to huge disappointment and frustration or to deeper connection between a couple. Here, we will discuss four guidelines for handling expectations well. Successful couples usually do a pretty good job on all 4.

    Great job fam,

    One of the biggest phenomenon that I find as it relates to Expectation (and you touch it a tad bit Aiyana) is, oftentimes folk have no idea what they want, yet they expect for their mates to understand and achieve what it is that they don't even know that they want.

    Y'alll ain't play – just pushin.

    I said this once and i will keep saying this. When people meet one another, it is very important that you spend time just courting, without the none sense of (Getting Some) Hey! I do not know you!, ya'll feelin me.

    This way the two are able learn about one another ways and talk about things of ones self, but slowly as you get to know this person. Take your time if he or she is someone that you want to continue with longterm.

    But keep it real about who you are and what you are willing to give in return in the future and stay true to your word throughout the (COURTSHIP) and just maybe something more can grow from this foundation that will carry you through life's situations.

    If we choose to ignore the courtship stage. Most of the time you will not make it to a meaningful relationship, this is a fact. Only lies, a waist of time and effort.

    Swagger and cuteness fades away after that thrill is gone.
    Real love sustains the test of time.
