What kind of relationship are you looking for?
The problem: We jump into a relationship for reasons quite different from why the other person did only to later find out what we were looking for turns out to be completely different from what the relationship is or where it’s going.
Unfortunately, we find this out quite late in the game which results in frustration, confusion, and broken hearts.
The solution is simple.
Whether you’re looking just looking friends with benefits or a long term relationship, it’s important to know and understanding exactly what you’re looking for in a relationship and be very clear about your intentions with the other person your dating or even married to.
It doesn’t have to be a super complex conversation, but it does have to be discussed and shared to make sure you’re on the same page.
Here a few pointers to help lead the conversion and get on the same page.
