All of the above, possibly apart from the last (an excellent list!). Plus one or two othere that probably overlap to some degree


Remember how I was at the beginning and try to remain that way

Don't forget about other people

Continue to work on myself

Learn ways of communicating

Learn to share a common dream

I'm not single, but I am going to list the things I am doing differently in my current relationship that I had to work on since my last one (which is why this one is lasting way longer, 1.5 years).



-Realizing which expectations of mine are rational or irrational

-Thinking about long term compatibility instead of short term

-Not blowing up when something bothers me...being more compassionate about his situations

-Being more carefree and having fun more

-Letting the relationship take its own course, not forcing it
