When it comes to choosing a partner, choose someone wisely. Evaluate a potential choice as you would a friend; look at their personality, values, character, their generosity of spirit, the relationship between their words and actions, their relationship with others.
Know what your needs are in a relationship. A relationship should never be about guessing. Many men and woman try to camouflage their needs when we should be comfortable enough to admit them. If we do not express our needs, the result is usually disappointment, which causing anger at the partner. Your partner is not a mind reader.
Learn how to manage your differences. Having disagreements is normal, but how you deal with them can make or break a relationship. Learn how to handle these differences and talk them out. Avoiding conflicts is not managing them.
