If you are looking for true love, there are some conversations that you need to have early in the relationship. A heads up: some of these topics are taboo. So what are the types of conversations that you need to be having at the start of your relationship? Some of these topics are uncomfortable, but to ensure a successful relationship, you need to get them out of the way early on.
Here are the crucial conversations that you must have with your new partner if you are looking for a long-lasting relationship:
This is an important thing to bring up early in the relationship. You need to present it in a way that will highlight three specific things about yourself: who you were when you were with your ex, what went wrong, and what you want moving forward. The thing is you need to talk about your ex in a way that appears confident, but also vulnerable. You should not look sad, wistful, or angry while talking about your ex. You don't want to just trash-talk your ex, because that will seem like you are juvenile and have not moved on. Talk about your ex with a positive vibe, but emphasizing why your relationship did not work. Be mature when disclosing your previous relationship details. Explain why it ended and what you're now looking for in a future partner.
If political beliefs and preferences are essential to you, you need to address them right away. You might have certain beliefs that you are adamant about and a partner who does not share those same beliefs may be a deal-breaker. If you cannot be with someone who has drastically different political views, you need to get your beliefs out on the table as soon as possible so that neither of you wastes their time.
Do you want to be in a relationship just to have fun? Are you looking for something serious? You date according to your preferences. If you are looking for a genuine, long-term relationship, you need to reveal that to your date. By telling your date that you are ready to be in a real relationship that could lead to marriage and kids, you should make this known early on. Conversations about the future are important because they let both partners know what the other's expectations are. If those expectations don't match. both partners can walk away from the relationship before it gets serious.
4. “What are we?”
Usually, guys dread asking this question. Imagine you have been dating a woman for several weeks or months. You have met her family and friends, made love to her, and you start to refer to hear as your girlfriend. Meanwhile, your so-called “girlfriend” has no clue and she’s still dating other guys. This doesn’t necessarily mean she’s a player or unfaithful; it’s because you didn't have the “What are we?” talk with her. Communication creates clarity in relationships. Don't assume that you and your partner are exclusive until you have this conversation.
