Every text from your loved one gives you butterflies, you’re smiling all day long and you just can’t wait to see each other again.
If you feel like this, you’re likely still in the honeymoon period of a new relationship.
But despite everything seeming perfect, it could be doomed if you don’t watch out for the things that could potentially ruin it in the long run.
From assuming they are perfect from their behaviour early on to avoiding serious conversations, there are many little things we can be blind to when in the blissful early days of a new relationship. Here, FEMAIL rounds up the mistakes to avoid if you want your new girlfriend or boyfriend to go the distance…
Don’t Move Too Fast
It can be tempting to want to blow through the honeymoon stage and quickly settle into a comfortable routine or worse, do something drastic like move in together too soon.
But wanting to spend every second together could be the death knell for your partner – so don’t drop your whole life for them.
Make sure to spend a few nights alone, continue to make time for the things you love and still go out with your friends.
It’s important to retain a little mystery to keep things exciting, says Meredith Fineman, founder of Fifty First (J)Dates.
‘In a new relationship, it’s really easy to blow out too fast in the honeymoon’ phase and want to spend every waking second together,’ she told Glamour.
‘It can be the end of a relationship if your partner feels that the mystery is gone.’
