A lot of the time people think that being in a relationship is easy, it’s all smooth sailing from here, but oh how wrong they are. Early days of a relationship are like a minefield of awkward situations. There’s so much that can go wrong. So let’s talk about some of the awkward things that happen in relationships and how to deal with them.
1. Saying I Love You
Let’s just start with the most obvious one. Saying I love you too early can be very awkward. And it’s great if you get one in return, but that doesn’t always happen. Sometimes you just get a thank you or an awkward silence. This doesn’t necessarily mean the person you just opened up doesn’t have feelings for you, but maybe they’re just not ready to put them into words. It’s always good to be patient in these situations and not to have any grand expectations.
2. Buying A Toothbrush For Their Place
In the early days of a relationship you spend a lot of time in each other’s homes, but it’s hard to figure out when is it appropriate to leave some stuff behind. It’s one thing to bring a toothbrush with you, because you know you’re staying over for a night, but choosing to leave it in their bathroom, so you always have it there – is a whole other thing. The best case scenario is to casually offer to buy a toothbrush for your partner when you’re in a shop and not to make a big deal out of it.
