    Recently i started dating a great guy and wanted to know if you had any good relationship tips. My previous dating experiences have been less than great. I had to get a restraining order on the first one and the second one left me for a 17 year old. So in this endevor i have stived to present the authentic me with all my idosynchases. I really like this guy and feel that it is going well but i am a more research oriented person so give me your stories of success or helpful hints to make relationships more than just a short term excursion.

    thanks in advance

    The only hint i can give you is be yourself it is corny but it works. Also do not stalk them. No one likes a stalker.

    Don't come across as too "klingy" or needy (even if you are)

    Fisrt off Phillip your 25. Your perspectives of the world are going to change so much over the years. I remember being your age and thinking life was so intense and it really wasn't. I met a great guy right around the time I turned 30, I thought I would spend the rest of my life with him. We were together for about 8yrs, we are still friends and will always be apart of eachother. We grew apart but still loved eachother. I'm saying all this to say there is no formula for a great relationship. Relationships are like anything else they have a life span and a season. Just be honest with eachother and try to keep your expectations to a minimum. One more thing, remember after the honeymoon phase and the mist clears ask yourself, can I live with this guy and his issues, can he live with mine.

    Thanks for your responses. I can understand what your saying. Things in life are less intense the more cognitive connections one places on any subject of there life.

    "SwiftJock" & "Musclebucket" Youre both exactly right! One exercise that I think we all can do is to evaluate ourselves as our own boyfriend. It may sound weird, but ask yourself that if you were him, would you be a good canidate for the job? You will learn more about yourself and what you truly want in a realationship. I could be wrong but it works for me :^)
