Basically, a relationship is a connection between two or more partners. In our lives, we have many different kinds of relationships with our family, our friends, our teachers and our neighbours. A romantic or sexual relationship is a bit different from other relationships and it can be wonderful, fulfilling and fun, but it can also be stressful or complicated.
A romantic relationship usually involves an emotional, intellectual and/or sexual connection with another individual or individuals. Everyone has their own unique expectation of romantic or sexual relationships. It’s okay if your expectations for romantic or sexual relationships differ from your parents and even from your friends: check out the few points below:
To be understanding of your partner means knowing what they mean and what their intentions are without asking them about it. It is subconscious knowledge that one develops about their partner’s behavioural patterns and thoughts.
Tolerance allows you to tell your partner that there is something you don’t like about him or her, but you are going to deal with it because you generally love him or her. Tolerance doesn’t mean losing. Like everything else in this world, tolerance has its place in life. You must understand when you should apply it.
Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they’re different from you or you don’t agree with them. Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and well-being. Respect doesn’t have to come naturally – it is something you learn.
