Welcome to the office of love dr. Chelsea! If you watched my YouTube vid, then you know it is all about my love life (of lack thereof). Well, since I am such an expert on love (okay, maybe not an expert) I thought that I would give you all some friendly relationship advice. Relationships are tough, so a little advice wouldn’t hurt!
- Stay independent. When you are in a relationship, it is really easy to want to spend every waking minute with that person. Resist that temptation! I am not saying that it is bad to spend time with them, but everyone knows that girl that blows off all of her friends for her boyfriend, and that is totally not healthy! Doing your own thing every once in a while leads to a healthier relationship.
- Don’t try to be perfect, just be honest. Just be yourself when you are with your man candy! He knows that you aren’t perfect, so don’t try to be! Trying to be perfect for him can be exhausting, and it doesn’t show him who you really are.
- Don’t take yourself too seriously. This kind of goes with the last one, but I thought it deserved its own category. If you try and take yourself too seriously, then you keep yourself from having fun! Joke around, have tickle fights, just do fun stuff! But also, when the time is right, you can be serious. Joking around can be great, but sometimes you have to take things seriously.
- Keep your boundaries clear. When you are up front about your boundaries and morals, it makes dating much easier because they know exactly what you are about! Keep it Christ centered J
The picture I used in this article shows you how joking around can be fun. Love can be a blast, you just gotta have some tips on how to navigate through the waters. Hang on ladies, it can be a bumpy ride!
