Creating a Good Relationship From The Start
Relationships of all kinds are often perceived as very delicate things, that require extra effort to maintain. However, a relationship can also be something that can provide security and can also be long lasting despite many trials.
Good relationships needs open communication, this doesn’t mean sharing everything. It’s Ok to have secrets, the rhetoric of ” no secrets” might work when you are 20 but not at 60. Your mystery can be attractive and alluring so don’t bare all, unfold who you are as time goes on and if the opportunity arises.
Respect is the key to relationship. We can show respect by listening sincerely and not being too quick to form judgements and prejudice. Your partner may be only willing to share their story over time.
Respect is the very foundation for a great relationship. This also means respecting yourself and respecting others.
Another key area in forming an effective relationship is to recognise differences. At 60 you’ll know quicly if a difference is tolerable or not. If you know a win-win is not going to work, with online dating its is easier to say “Thanks but, No Thanks”.
Just be honest. It’s much better to be honest early on than to go out with someone just to be nice. We’re relatively sure that you wouldn’t want someone to go out with you just to be nice. Why waste the time.
