1. Learn to be trusting, but don’t be gullible.
There are people who think that they can always get away with their mischief by sweet talking their way out. It also happens to most couples, so as a woman you have to learn the art of balancing trust and vigilance. Trust your partner’s actions and decisions, but at the same time know your ground.
By being able to balance your trust, it would be easier for you to manage problems that arise in your relationship, as you know when to fill in for your partner’s shortcomings or how to accept faults as you both go along the way.
2. Speak your mind, but use kind words.
Most women say a lot of things that they don’t mean. These words, however, can be very hurtful to their partner, even if they’re half-meant. Hence, as a woman, you may want to practice speaking your mind and meaning what you say, but at the same time use kind words especially when your message doesn’t require too much emotional drama. Men always appreciate women who are honest and grounded, and you should remember that.
3. Accept your partner’s flaws and shortcomings.
During courtship, your suitor would always be putting his best foot forward, until you say yes to his proposal to become his girlfriend. It is only later on when you realize that he has a lot of flaws and weakness that you didn’t expect, and these can put a big strain on your relationship.
Thus, it is important that you learn to accept one’s imperfections. Do not set overly ideal standards for your partner to meet because these will only leave you frustrated.
