The honeymoon phase…that ooey-gooey, lovey-dovey phase that so many couples remember fondly.  For some people the beginning of a relationship isn’t so blissful. They worry about doing something that will blow it and end the relationship.  They try to figure out what they need to do or how they need to be to make the relationship last.  There are books and magazine articles dedicated to helping you “get your guy.”  There are step by step instructions on how to date any girl you want or turn your boyfriend into your husband.

I’m not a fan of “rules” or “guidelines” when it comes to dating.  I’m not a fan of pretending to be someone in order to get a relationship (I mean what do you do once you get the relationship and it doesn’t match up with who you really are???).  There are some things to keep in mind when you are dating.  I sat down with the ladies at KOIN Studio6 to talk about some New Relationship Dos and Don’ts.

You won’t find any “tricks” or “traps” here.  The most important way to actually make your relationship work is to be clear about what you want in a relationship and really show up as you are.  Be yourself!  If you pretend to be someone else, are you really in the relationship?  And what happens when one day you get tired of pretending?  If your new guy or gal doesn’t like you as you are, then you shouldn’t be in a relationship with them. Once you’ve established your relationship, there are all sorts of things you can do to make your relationship work.  Set yourself up for success by starting your relationship based on honesty.
