Expecting Someone to Change?

It’s amazing how we sometimes long to be in a relationship and finally it happens and all of a sudden we expect our partners to change so that they can fit in the way we envisioned it to happen.

Unfortunately, things have so much changed in the dating world. Some lie to get what they want, others become friends with benefits just to keep up, some give in to casual sex which is no different from booty calls and some just don’t care anymore!

Truth is no one will stick around when you try to change them. You either have to learn to blend or step aside. There’s the need to compromise on a positive note without disrupting your set standards and as long as you’re not ready to do that, you’ll keep getting dumped. 

Being clingy is also not needed anymore. You’ve got to be independent and respect each other’s space and time. Quit checking on his or her phone to see who called or sent a text message, snooping around will also make you lose that good man or woman. 

Learn to love that partner and take some “me” time where you don’t choke each other up. Love us about respect, trust, honesty, loyalty and excellent communication amongst other things. If that partner isn’t meant to be, the relationship cannot be forced. 

If anyone really needs to change, always start with yourself. Learn to wait for the right one knowing you can’t change anyone but you can love them for who they really are!
