It is extremely important to communicate and be very clear about your relationship goals.

If you are not looking for a long-term relationship or you are ONLY interested in a marriage partner and want to have kids and a family right away, you want to make sure that you are on the same page.

This is not to say that you can’t spend a great amount of time together if you both agree and genuinely enjoy spending time together.

It just means that you should not dismiss friends and family if they want to spend time with you also.

The following 5 Essential early relationship tips will help guide and nourish your relationship in the early stages with your new partner.

At any stage, it’s important that you are always yourself.

It is not a time to “hide” things from your partner.

If you have certain habits and regular activities such as smoking, or a regular card night with the boys, or going to Church on Sundays then you want to be honest and upfront and share with your partner things that are important to you and anything that is routine in your life.

If you are going above and beyond and in essence being “phony” just to impress your partner in the early stages, well you’re only making things difficult on yourself because your new beau actually believes that you are sweet and romantic ALL THE TIME.

And the minute that you start to relax and return to your normal average niceness, it will be noticed immediately.

Your family and friends are important and should not be tossed to the side or “ditched” just because you’re in a new relationship.
