Most people might say the first year of a romantic relationship is the easier one. Everything goes smoothly because the passion is at the maximum level, sort of like the honeymoon phase. But that’s a wrong statement.
If you think about it, the first year is the year of adaptation. Yes, you might love the other person, but you’re also dating them for the first time, problems will arise, and they’ll test your relationship to the core.
Some people are just not meant to be together or find out they aren’t ready to be in a relationship with anyone but themselves, and these are things you realize in the first year.
So no, the first year is not easy. Maybe the first month because everything is new, but once things start settling in, that’s when the real adventure begins.
If you’re currently in your first year with your new romantic partner, and you’re worried about turning this new relationship into a long term relationship, then keep reading, and you’ll find out how to make a relationship last.
