Treat your Partner Well
A common theme we find in forum posts is that Mary and Jack are having problems. Jack starts treating Mary poorly - and Mary leaves. Then Jack is upset and distraught for years and years afterward, wishing he had Mary back! As the saying goes, "you don't know what you've got until it's gone."
If you're having trouble in your relationship, work on it. Take even little steps to make it better. If you're really stuck, call in an expert to help out - a minister, a therapist, even a friend! Everything worth having in life takes some effort. Put the effort into your relationship to make sure it stays solid.
The big day of romance is coming! If you've got a partner, do you know what you'll be doing? If you're not with a partner and want one, do you have some ideas for flirting and breaking the ice? Come by our forums and we'll give you a hand, no matter what your situation is! Just let us know your current challenge, and we'll brainstorm a solution!
You Don't Have to Be Right
I know this one was a challenging one for me to personally learn. I enjoy being right! But sometimes it does not MATTER if you are right. So your partner is convinced birds fly clockwise north of the border and counter-clockwise south of the border. So what if he is absolutely, idiotically wrong. Smile and let it go. We all make mistakes in life. They aren't going to kill us. Of course if your partner insists that lighting the fireworks in the house would be great fun, it's time to redirect his energies. But if it's something small and meaningless, let it go. Part of working in a society is knowing which battles to fight, and which ones to merrily ignore. Think of it as a valuable life skill to hone!
