Stop Blaming Yourself When Relationships Go Wrong

Stop Blaming Yourself When Relationships Go Wrong appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Stop blaming yourself when your relationships go wrong. There is some accountability you should take for the relationship going wrong. Perhaps you enabled bad behavior. You may not be good at creating and establishing boundaries. You may have seen a boatload of red flags you chose to ignore. You might have known they were not single when you got involved with them. You may even have known it was too soon for them to start something with you because they recently got out of a relationship.

Okay, those things are on you but don’t waste your time blaming yourself and beating yourself up about that. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and learn from your mistakes so you do not repeat them. Make better choices going forward. Pay attention to red flags and don’t be afraid to end a relationship before you get burned. Why wait? Don’t give someone too ma..

Minimizing Drama in Your Relationships

Minimizing Drama in Your Relationships appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Drama is not something we hope will be a major part of our relationships. Who, other than a Drama Queen or King would want that? Surprisingly enough, too many people find themselves dealing with more relationship drama than they want to. They want a more peaceful, healthy relationship but don’t know how to minimize the drama in order to get that.

So what are some ways of minimizing drama in your relationship? Let’s start with a real obvious one: Don’t get involved with Drama Queens or Drama Kings. Drama comes with the territory with people like that. Whether it is a partner, friend, or family member, these people are draining to deal with. If you want to know how to deal with a Drama Queen or King, read the article here .

If a relationship is new, and you see signs of dramatic behavior early on, it might be wise to bow out while it’s still early. You can a..

On-Off Relationships

On-Off Relationships appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Have you found yourself in an on-off relationship and wonder how it came to this? Does your relationship status constantly change so often no one takes it seriously? When you tell your closest friends and family members they never take your break ups seriously because they think you are going to get back together at some point?

On-off relationships are embarrassing to say the least. Adults are supposed to have mature relationships, and on-off relationships are far from mature. They are full of drama, have no stability, and one member of the couple is suffering horribly (sometimes both). One of them may actually thrive on this kind of relationship. Most people don’t understand on-off relationships and wouldn’t want one in the first place. Your friends and family wind up seriously disliking the one you love, and you really can’t blame them for it. You can’t blame them for gett..

He Made Contact After Ghosting Me, Now What?

He Made Contact After Ghosting Me, Now What? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

He made contact after ghosting you, so now what do you do? When he suddenly dropped off the face of the earth you went through every emotion imaginable. You worried that maybe you said something wrong and rack you brain wondering what it was. You go over every conversation you had again and again wondering what you could have said that made him not speak to you again.

You get angry that they have not answered when you called and won’t answer your texts. It hurt your feelings when they blocked you on social media. You lost sleep wondering what the hell happened. You could barely think of anything else because him ghosting you made no sense and was not fair at all. You wish he would tell you why instead of being so silent. You feel you deserve an explanation for treating you like dirt. You didn’t know when or if you could move on because you didn’t know..

If You’re Not Interested in Him, Here’s What To Do

If You’re Not Interested in Him, Here’s What To Do appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

What should you do when you are not interested someone? Depending on the situation, there are right ways and wrong ways of handling it. If someone is expressing an interest in dating you but you are not interested in them you can try to give them hints before they make their move. You bring up things like “I am not ready to date anyone right now” or “I am happy being single” in conversation. You can also pretend to be in a relationship with someone.

But what if they ask you out anyway? Well, if they didn’t take the hint still try to let them down gently, but firmly. No one really wants to hurt someones feelings and some people have a hard time rejecting someone for fear of doing just that. It is worse to lead them on or give them false hope. If you don’t want to hurt their feelings just tell them it is not about them. You could say you are not r..

Why Does He Keep Coming Back Only to Leave Again?

Why Does He Keep Coming Back Only to Leave Again? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Why does he keep coming back only to leave again? When you broke up, you were devastated. You didn’t know how to handle it, and wondered how you would move on. You tried to think of ways you could have prevented the break up and/or were frustrated that your ex didn’t do all they could to save your relationship.

You missed him every day, and found it very hard to get through your day. You couldn’t think straight, you couldn’t function properly, and forget about getting a good nights sleep. You truly grieved the ending of your relationship and tried to move on. (Even if you didn’t want to.)

But then your ex came back. He may have contacted you with an attempt to reconcile or just used a stupid reason to break the ice. You don’t care what method he used to come back, you are just glad he did. You feel as though you learned some things, and you hope..

Are You Too Passive in Your Relationship?

Are You Too Passive in Your Relationship? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Are you too passive in your relationship? Many people wind up being too passive in their relationships for several reasons. One reason is because they are afraid to speak up for them selves, and another because they do not like what they feel is confrontation. Some people are too passive because they choose to be the peacemaker. Regardless of the reason, if you are too passive in your relationship you are not going to wind up happy with the relationship you are creating. Many people do not realize they are being too passive in their relationships so we created a list of signs to help you recognize if you are too passive with your romantic partner?

Signs of Being Too Passive
1. You no longer do the things that were important or fun for you. If you have given up, for instance, going to the gym because your partner discourages you going or you chose to in o..

Top 10 Relationship Myths

Top 10 Relationship Myths appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

There are many relationship myths that can cause people to have unrealistic views of relationships. These can lead to unrealistic expectations as well. We have complied a list of many of the top relationship myths to help end the confusion.

1. Everyone, at some point, will be willing to settle down when they are ready and meet the right person. This is simply false. Not everyone will. It is not just a matter of waiting someone out until they do. Some people will never settle down.

2. Living together leads to marriage. In the past that was more common, but nowadays? No. Living together does not mean at some point your relationship will lead to marriage. Especially if you moved in together way too quickly.

3. Fighting or disagreeing is not a part of a healthy relationship. That is false. There is nothing wrong with an occasional argument or disagreement of opinion or be..

How Much Proof Do You Need?

How Much Proof Do You Need? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

How much proof do you need when it comes to the one you love? Why do so many people ignore the truth about the person they love and remain in denial? The truth about the person you love is based on facts, not feelings.

Your feelings are what create excuses for the one you love to get away with whatever it is they are doing or saying. Your creative narrative about them pretty much ignores the proof so that you can justify either not ending the relationship or not changing it. The proof is right there, no need to hide it. The only reason to hide it is that you don’t want other people to know the truth about your relationship and how bad it really is.

Isn’t that proof right there that there is something dysfunctional going on? I am not saying you have to immediately end your relationship this second (although some of you should). I am saying you need to deal with the tr..

Setting Boundaries in Relationships

Setting Boundaries in Relationships appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Setting boundaries in relationships is a great way to have a healthy relationship. Many people feel setting boundaries in relationships is not necessary. They believe that if someone loves them they should know what their expectations are and what their boundaries are. Wrong. Your partner is not a mind reader, so you both need to be clear about your expectations of the relationship and each other.

It is important to be as specific as possible, so don’t be afraid to express yourself freely. When you and the one you love give yourselves the freedom to express yourselves you build better communication. This also leaves little room for misunderstandings or miscommunication. Without boundaries in a relationship it is not possible for the relationship to be healthy because there is no respect. Each person in the relationship has the responsibility of letting the oth..

Getting Mixed Signals From the One You Love?

Getting Mixed Signals From the One You Love? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

Getting mixed signals from the one you love? When you are in a relationship with someone who is sending you mixed signals you may not know how to feel or what to think. Just when you believe the one you love is on the same page as you, they turn around and make you believe you may not even be on the same planet.

It is very hard to gain any real sense of stability in the relationship when they keep pulling the rug out from under you all the time. One day they can be talking and behaving as though a relationship with you is what they want. Then, suddenly, they behave and speak as though being in a relationship with you is the last thing on earth they want. So what are you supposed to think? Which of their signals is the one you should believe and have faith in?

Of course you want to believe they care about you, love you, and want to be with you. But ..

Open Relationship: He Wants One But You Don’t

Open Relationship: He Wants One But You Don’t appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise

He wants an open relationship and you don’t. What are you supposed to do now? You more than likely didn’t see this conversation coming. He probably blindsided you with this out of nowhere and threw you for a loop. You don’t want the relationship to end, but you never considered having an open relationship either.

So should you walk away, or take some time to see if you can handle having an open relationship? That is for you to decide, and you should take the time you need to honestly assess if an open relationship is right for you. The first thing you need to understand and discuss with your loved one is what an open relationship actually is. An open relationship means that the both of you have the options to have a sexual and/or emotional relationships with other people on the side. Monogamy is no longer a part of your relationship.
