How to handle a new dating relationship
A new relationship should come with excitement, passion, and butterflies in your stomach, that unrealistic feeling of floating above all your worries and being armed with the power to conquer every last obstacle in your way.
After all, you don’t know where things are going to end up and you can’t control the outcome. You can’t figure out why someone would like/love you5. Negative thoughts about the end of the relationship7. You practice the pull-push strategy with your partner – you want to be with your partner one minute but you’re pushing them away the next by creating conflict9. You’re too sensitive about everything None of these things makes you a bad person or someone no one should be in a relationship with.
"It will be part of your relationship at times," says Leahy.
