After meeting the person of your dreams you are likely to do as so many others and jump into a relationship. After all, it seems like a fairytale and you are expecting all things to work out as planned.
But before you get too caught up in fantasizing about all your dreams coming true you should learn as much as you can about your partner. Keep in mind that the two of you are only humans and you live in the real world where things do not always happen as you would like.
Unfortunately we all have our own issues to deal with and when we bring another person into our life that can complicate things even further. Eventually the air will clear and so will your mind. What I mean is the initial infatuation will become a real love and you will begin to see things as they really are.
But in the meantime problems of some sort may creep into your world. It is good to keep in mind that during the initial times that you are together both of you are likely to be on your best behavior. But as time goes on the side of you that you only show to family and chosen friends will begin to shine. The same will likely be true of your partner.
This is perfectly normal. After all, we do not always act the same around one person as we do around another. The relationship you have with your professional friends is certainly different than the one you have with your close friends. Because of that difference you are likely to behave a little differently depending on whom it is that you are with.
If you are involved in a relationship that requires that you spend lots of time with the other person you are more likely to be yourself around that person. I mean really, it is difficult to try to be on your best behavior for extended periods of time.
Once you and your partner let your guard down it is possible that you will find personality quirks or traits that you do not particularly like. Or your partner may notice something in you that is completely irritating.
Perhaps after a month or so into the relationship you realize that your partner does not like spending time at home. He or she is always on the go. But you on the other hand like nothing better than spending time at home reading or watching TV or playing on the Internet. Obviously this could cause some conflicts.
I am not saying that you cannot work around such problems because you certainly can. But what I am saying is that you should be aware of such differences before you get overly involved. That will afford you the opportunity to work out a compromise, make adjustments, or to decide that the effort is a waste of time.
The more you learn about your partner in the beginning the easier it will be to work through misunderstandings, disagreements, and difficult times. Learn all you can in order to prevent surprises in the future.

"You are a life Saver!!
I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.
I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty
magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that
habit with coming here.
In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
