Be Open to Learning

One of the best parts about being in a relationship is that each person brings different skills and experiences to the table. While your flavor of the month might have some seriously handy Mr. Fix-it skills, you’ve got a serious love for travel. Take advantage of these differences and be open to learning. Even if you find it uninteresting…this is where the compromise comes in, remember? Besides, what happens when you’ve finally convinced your sweetie to go on a soul seeking travel adventure for once, and a pipe bursts? Avoid forking over $300 to a plumber, because your newfound “handyman” capabilities might surprise you.

Prioritize to Compromise

Sure your “friends night out” may have been scheduled since last Monday, but if your Boo had a bad day, it might be a good idea to reschedule. Maintaining a successful relationship does involve sacrifice, but those small compromises are inevitably for the best. When both parties work toward meeting each other’s needs, you learn what the most important factors are in making your relationship work. And it’s not always the big things. Trust us, running errands on your lunch break can wait. Sometimes just grabbing a quick bite with your hunny might be the first little step you need to take your relationship to the next level.

Listen, learning to compromise will ultimately open you to new experiences and change your outlook on life. If you do it right, it’ll be for the better. So learn to meet in the middle, embrace change, and discover the 50 new shades of you. Feeling extra steamy for Mr. Grey? We’ve got you covered.
