If you have a problem, don’t immediately point the finger, but instead approach your partner with compassion and understanding.
Be comfortable in the fact that neither of you is fully “right” or “wrong.” The true answer lies somewhere in the middle.
Avoid the temptation to snoop your partner’s phone, Facebook messages, or email account.
While this could temporarily calm your nerves when you see nothing afoul, it is also a behavior that could quickly become addictive, not to mention damaging for relationship trust when they find out Big Brother is watching.
This is difficult to defend against, because after all, you are a man.
We’re always checking women out, but unless you’re a complete douche, you’re probably not drooling with your eyes popping out of your head, and that’s basically what she’s accusing you of.
While conflict is stressful for your relationship in the short-term, it will build the strength of your relationship in the long-term.
Facing your problems without fear will help you grow closer to your partner.
Just because a boy and girl (or boy and boy, or girl and girl) are friends doesn’t mean there is more to the story.
Let go of any left-over hurtful feelings that might be lingering and realize that your new relationship is a new opportunity to put all of that behind you.
The lovely thing about life: you can re-start as many times as you need to!
Like I mentioned, it’s flattering when someone thinks you’re the shit, but don’t believe the hype. Most of us can tell when we’re being flirted with, but an insecure woman assumes every conversation you have with someone of the opposite sex is going to lead to you dumping her for an upgrade, so she always swoops in to intervene.
A little is fine and perfectly normal, but you should be able to tell when she’s moving into bunny-boiler territory.
