3 relationship truths

28 September 2015, 18:01 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  I think that most people do not really know there partners. I think that most people just went into a relationship just for the sake of being in one.  They do not know what they are getting into with that other person.

I also think that at times you look at your partner and you think, ‘what the hell was I thinking?’ But now you cannot take it back and have to make it work. You look at them and they are so into you and what you ‘have’ and your legs are busy trying to get to the other side of the fence.

You have to know what you want from a relationship, and then choose your partner.

If you have no idea, then obviously you are going to keep making bad decisions where the latter is concerned. That is the only way you will ever make it work.  Know what you want from a relationship and choose a partner that will give you that. That way, you do not pin your issues onto someone else.

Be realistic with your wants and needs.

Do not fall into the trap of societal expectations, you will always loose. You like dating older people, then date older people because they give you what you want and stop worrying what people will think. You are materialistic, or like money then go after someone that can support that lifestyle and do not put it on someone that is struggling to make it work for themselves. You are hindering them because now they are struggling for your minuscule needs and losing their bigger picture. You become less fulfilled because no matter how hard they try they are not giving you what you want. You like attention, go for a partner who will give you that. Independence is good but we are all not made that way, so stop pretending and making someone else feel miserable about it.

You need to both know where you want it to go

After a while, you are hopefully open enough with your partner. Some of you want to get married, others don’t. Some want one child others do not want any at all. Some already have someone else in the picture and they are yet to let you know. Just keep your partner in the loop you will find it much easier to deal with the aftermath because you were open with them.
