Sure, you might have loved your single life all this time. Singlehood came with a unrestrained liberty and you intend to have it the same way throughout. But once you fall for Mr. Right, you might have to let go off a few things that are surely not worth holding to in a relationship.
Here are a few things you could actually think of changing with the right person:
Taking work breaks during the weekends
Yeah, being independent got you a strong career. You love your work and are passionate about it. You love working even during the weekends and never have had the thought of taking your weekends off. But for the right man who you are willing to spend the rest of your life with you could be able to adjust your schedule. For making the relationship work really well, you need to invest your time into it. Hence, making the most of your weekends is the best way to strengthen your bond. This could be a movie date, shopping or even dinner.
Globetrotting isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Even if you aren’t entirely repelled by the idea, it might not attract you as well. However, understand that travelling is an enriching experience. You can learn about your partner in ways that you could never within the confines of your own city or comfort zone. Wouldn’t you want to visit the best places with him and make memories? You’ll surely miss out on a lot of fun in case you trash the idea.
Curbing your TV addiction
A lot of us addicted to the TV. We seem to forget the world around when our favourite shows are on air. Even worst, we get all too selfish about the kind of shows we would want to watch without taking into account what the other person is interested in. However, with the right man, you should choose to adjust to the kind of entertainment that he loves too. Of course, both of you should be willing to prioritise each other’s wishes. Trust me, there are better things to talk about and utilise your time for rather than fighting over meagre things like TV shows. Plus, you can always have your shows recorded and watch them when your partner isn’t around.
No matter how long you have been single, everyone does have an idea of the kind of compromises and adjustments that come with a relationship. Everyone has their own idea of what a relationship is supposed to be like since everyone has a different perspective of love and life. You may be absolutely clueless about the kind of life you will have in future and how things are supposed to unfold for you. So, it’s best you keep all your expectations to yourself instead of pressurising someone to do everything singlehandedly for making the relationship work.
Your obsessive tendency
You need to stop obsessing over everything that comes into your life. Just let things be at times. Let go of your obsession for the right man. With the right one, you won’t need to or rather shouldn’t worry about every single thing constantly. You needn’t go crazy about every little issue but rather concentrate on enjoying every moment you spend together.
If you have been single for a very long time, certain changes might appear intimidating. However, you should be ready to make certain adjustments here and there without compromising on your core values. Surely, the man must be worth the effort here.
