Many men and women believe that a non-committal, permanently casual situation is simply the modern version of a relationship — as if this is what passes for courtship in 2017. I’ve written about situationships before, using the term entanglement to describe a relationship that goes around and around in circles — for months or even years — but never leads to lasting commitment. That’s the kind of go-nowhere romance we’re talking about in this post. Men don’t fall in love with your crazy stories, your sense of humor, or your many accomplishments. They fall in love with your essence —who you are underneath all that superficial stuff. So never feel that you need to bombard a man with tons of information about yourself in that first date. Truthfully, the less you say, the more he can soak up your essence. He will learn all about you and appreciate all those accomplishments later. For now, your attitude should be Let the best man win.” Get your zen on and just go with the flow.

When you’re in love with someone, you need to focus on their positives and to make sure those positive features get stronger with time. You need to help each other grow and make each other as emotionally strong as you can. This is how relationships go beyond all limitations of time.
In this article, I intend to identify some of the common behaviors that make up a person’s dating and relationship intelligence. However, before you read on, I invite you to take a few minutes to write down ten behaviors that you know will make your relationships successful. Then write down 10 behaviors that you know will hurt your relationships. You may see several similarities with the points I cover here, but you’re also likely to uncover issues that are specific to you and your needs. After all, no two of us in this world are exactly alike.
We all have them. Those slightly odd things you do when you’re alone which are enhanced significantly when you’re single. Things like eating crackers with hot sauce while binge-watching reality television, spending hours in a homemade face mask, or walking around the house naked are those things you do to wind down and zone out.
