There are a few aspects and characteristics that are important to consider in dating relationships. These include faith and values, money, activities you do, and family. These are just some of the things that will affect your dating relationship in either a positive or negative way, depending on how you treat them.
Faith and values is one of the most important things in dating relationships. This is because people’s true selves come out when the hard times come around. Let’s suppose a financial difficulty comes around. If your faith and values allows you to continue onward and weather the storm while your partner’s values cause them to get scared and run, then that could be a telltale sign of a bad long term relationship. You should want someone who is going to stick with you in rich times and poor times. Faith and values also means discipline as well. So, when it comes to finances, and it turns out that you are the one who manages money poorly, then you should seek to improve yourself at every effort.
It is said that money is the root of all evil. The fact is that the love of money is the root of all evil. If you are in dating relationships and all you can think about is how you are going to make your next dollar, then you are essentially neglecting your partner. Money is not a person, but your partner is. And your partner needs as much, if not more attention than your money gets. Of course, you might say that you have to think about your business and how you are going to make your money, but the fact is that if you are going to be in a long term relationship, then you are going to have to devote the vast majority of you r attention to your partner.
Family should be one of the pillars of your dating relationships. They should understand that you are going to date different people in your lifetime. So, when they are there for you when you are down, be sure to be there for them as well. You can go to some of your trusted family members for advice and even confide in them if you are hurting. They should be there for you both in good times and bad. They should serve as a good enough of an example for you so that when you and your partner have your own family, you can either model it after your own, or you can improve upon the mistakes they have made.
