5 ways to ensure your new relationship succeeds

30 October 2014, 14:04 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Getting into a new relationship can be exciting, intense, fulfilling or just another day in someone’s life. It is new so you do not want to ruin it with your expectations or wants. You are afraid of outlining what you expect the whole thing to be about. But maybe you should because at times closing your eyes and taking it as it comes can land you in hot water. Especially if it is a sexual relationship.

Knowing each other’s limits

This will just save very one a lot of heartache especially if the other person wants to try something new. No one suffers any anxiety when they hear experiment because you were both clever enough to sit down and discuss how far each of you was willing to go.

About exclusivity

Never assume things that is just one of the worst things you can ever do. Assume you are in a relationship when the other person does not even know that they are in it with you. At times is better to just ask and get the harsh answer even though it was not what you wanted to hear. Assuming that this person is only sleeping with you just opens you up to a lot of risks. Better safe than sorry.

Precautionary Measures

As much as there are a lot of condom advertisements all over our screens am sure the number of sales made are not the same as the number that should be made. People do not like talking about sex, just doing it and they do not want to accept that anyone can get an STD even them. If you are in a new sexual relationship get it out there, that is what adults do.  If you are afraid or worried to do so then maybe you should not be doing it.

Any sexual problems/dysfunctions

This is a sensitive topic; say it before you do it then the other person may hightail it and not want to deal with your issues. Do not say it then you still run the risk of the same happening. That is why many avoid talking about their positive status. It is like a lose-lose situation. But best thing is to just get it out of the way and move on. If they do not accept you for your honesty then they were probably not worth it.

Planning and feedback

Plan sex and it removes the sensationality that surrounds it. Get into a rut then you probably need to start planning.  It’s like you cannot win, it just gets too technical. But be one with good instincts, have a viable feedback system with your partner that when something feels off you act on it.
