Setting Records Straight- Relationships
I am still wondering why we are having confusion all over, when all we need is some truth though it hurts. When you meet someone, you can to tell whether you like him/her or not. You can also know almost immediately, if you can accommodate the person’s personality or not. When you go on a date, you understand yourselves fully whether you have been healed from the wounds of previous relationship or not. Issues like suicide as a result of cheating or being jilted by a lover should never occur. Depression because a lover left suddenly without any signals or reasons for ending a relationship should be a thing of the past. Assumption of sex to be loved and vice versa should stop.
If you want a lasting relationship, make it clear. Having a perfect understanding of the term ‘relationship’ as a commitment to one partner and pulling all the efforts to make it end in marriage is a good start, though, not all relationship ends in marriage. There are challenges you know, but it doesn’t mean it should kill a relationship instead, it should strengthen it. Just like how temptations strengthen our faith.
If sex is what you want, just make it clear from the beginning. It is accepted that many of the people in relationships are young with plenty of restless hormones, which are sexually active. For some reasons here and there people are found alone and dejected without a partner. All you have to ensure is to use protection should the other person consent to the fact that you are in for sex only. Unless of course, if u have approached a prostitute where you will have to part with some cents.
If you just need to talk to someone when your partner is acting up, just make that point clear. So the other person stops building castles in the air about how blissful your relationship will be. This will also flatten any hopes that had been elevated and help the other person concentrate on how to make you happy. It won’t hurt because he/she will be prepared psychologically that you will be there for only a moment.
If you want him/her for money and not love just make it clear. The other person might decide to sort you out anyway. They might even surprise you with both the fish and fishing net. All will depend on your honesty, a virtue that may get you the money and the person. Should the response be a negative one, do not lose hope. Keep on keeping on. Your lucky day may be around the corner.
Do not complicate others life, deception leads to complication. At the beginning of any relationship, let your partner understand your motive and intention. If you are interested in him/her as your future partner, then move on but if other wise, make it clear to avoid breaking innocent hearts.
