Of course, things weren't always perfect between my boyfriend and me.
Here are 12 things I wish I knew about relationships in my early and mid 20s.2.You deserve to be happy, and there are plenty of people out there who would do the opposite of causing you tears. Move in together because you love each other and because you are ready.7. An apartment is not a baby or a marriage certificate.You don't have to keep fighting for your relationship because you've already committed to each other financially.If it's not working, it's not working, and you need to accept that.8. The minute you get involved physically and/or emotionally with a friend, you are taking a big risk, both with your relationship with that person and the relationship with all of your mutual friends.But you might be wasting your time if you know the person you're with has no intention of staying with you forever.Don't hang around because you think you can convince someone to like you. Don't stay with someone who doesn't take you seriously. If you have a gut feeling that your significant other isn't the one, listen to it.
Don't ignore it because your life timeline says you have to get engaged in two years and you don't want to go through the process of finding someone new again.
The minute you start to feel uneasy about your relationship, take action.
You don't want to wake up at 30 and decide now is the time to find someone else when you could have ended it years ago.4.
It's not worth it to stay with someone if all you do is fight.
If you aren't married and you don't have kids, you shouldn't have to keep trying to fix your relationship. At some point you need to give it up, move on, and remember that if it's meant to be, you'll get back together.5.
And it's definitely not worth it to stay with someone who makes you cry. Don't move in together because you think it will save you money or because you have no one to live with and you don't want to move back in with your parents.
