Are you in a new relationship? That’s great! However, not knowing how to handle it is not so great. What should you say? What should you do? How should you act? Do not panic. You can handle a new relationship if you start by knowing each other, communicating and taking your time.
Start to know each other
Be yourself. Let your new partner have the opportunity to know more about you and your virtues. Do not change just to please their tastes and desires. Remember that if you did not like what you really are, I would not be with you.
- Be honest about the things that you like and dislike, as well as about the things you agree with.
- For example, if you do not like basketball, do not pretend that you are excited about the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
- If you like to draw, show some of your drawings.
Converse Even if you know enough about your partner to be in a relationship, there are many things you do not know about her and vice versa. The more you know your partner, the better they can understand each other and their relationship will be even stronger.
- Talk about everyday things, for example, about how your day was, funny things your friends did or your plans for the weekend.
- Talk to your partner to find out more about their dreams and goals. Share your hopes and aspirations with her.
- Talk about your fears, worries and even about your mistakes. Sharing these things will form a bond between you.
Pay attention to the small details. You will learn a lot about your partner by listening to them, but you will learn a lot more by observing them and paying attention to other details about them. Realize what kind of music, movies and TV shows you like. What things make her laugh? What things make her angry? What things do you like or comment on online?
Do new things. Because your partner and you are two different people, they will have things in common, but they will also have different interests, opinions, among others. You should be willing to do things your way from time to time and maybe you could discover something that you like or learn something new.
- Let me tell you about your hobbies and teach you how to do them, as we all love to feel expert in something. You can also teach him how to perform your favorite activities.
- Listen and consider your opinion about the place you want to go, the activities you want to do, how to do certain things, among others.
- Do not feel pressured to do something you do not want. You can try to do new things without leaving aside your ethics, values and beliefs.
Spend time together. The best way to get to know each other is to spend time together. Try to interact in different environments so that you can experience its different facets. 
- Spending time alone will give them the opportunity to be able to pay attention to each other without distractions.
- Carrying out group activities will allow you to observe how you interact with other people.
- Not only pay attention to things that seem great, but also to the things that make her feel comfortable or uncomfortable, the type of activities or environments that she likes, among other things.
Spend a separate time. Although you probably want to spend all your time together, it’s also a good idea to spend time apart. Doing so will allow them to have things to talk about when they are together. Also, this will give you time to reflect on your partner and their relationship.
- Do activities and go to different places without your partner. Remember that before you started your relationship you had certain interests. Do not abandon them.
- Give yourself time for your friends and family. Remember that, although you are in a relationship, there are also people in your life who need to spend time with you and who want to spend time with you.
- Make sure you give yourself time to take care of your responsibilities (clean your room, finish your homework, feed your fish, among other things).
Learn to communicate
Speak and listen to her. Maintaining good communication will help you improve your new relationship and allow you to get to know each other better. It will also help them reduce misunderstandings and confusions. However, remember that communication is reciprocal. Make sure you listen to your partner as much as you talk.
- Even if it’s just a text message that says “good morning” or an afternoon call, communicate frequently. Everyone likes to feel that someone thinks about them.
- Give yourself time to sit down and talk. Talk about your day, your goals, your fears, your friends, among other things.
- Listen to what I have to say and share with you. Use your c
