1. Wait for the Call Instead of Calling Him
No matter how attractive he is and how much you miss him, just don’t call him after the first date. Neither are text messages. If you do so, congratulations — you have come closer to making them lose interest in you. That, sadly, is the truth about men: they would like to be the hunter more than the prey.
2. Don’t Rush to Have Intimate Acts
The golden rule: leaving one or two months before intimacy is greater than holding hands and kissing as soon as you meet, no matter if you are a virgin or not. A serious relationship takes time. Only after getting to know the person very well can you make sure whether you are a good match. Of course, you can ignore the advice if you are seeking a casual relationship.
3. Keep Independent Thinking
You may have difficulty in making decisions. You may be too lazy to work out a solution in the midst of a crisis. And you may be used to turning to others for help, especially your lover. But the above behaviors are not allowed in new relationships. Nobody can put himself in your shoes, including your parents. You have to figure out the method by yourself. In addition, if you always rely on your partner for help and advice on everything, one day you may lose yourself. So it is necessary to maintain independent thinking.
4. Play to Your Strengths
Playing to your strengths while bypassing your drawbacks proves a wise strategy in socializing, which applies to relationships as well. From appearance to fashion taste, from sense to versatility, and from character to personality, you have a range of things to show in your box. Everybody has strengths and weaknesses. There is no need to feel guilty about playing to your strengths and hiding your shortcomings when you start a new relationship.
