Summers almost over and a lot of relationships may do a reset or just give it the dump. I know many people that actually don’t lock down a sig other during the summer so they can enjoy all the fun they can have when single. So with people starting to really focus on coupling I figured it may be helpful to get some good advice, my favorite is in the top 5ish.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Based on your own personal experiences, what would be the best relationship advice you could ever give?

  • Find someone you can have FUN by doing things together whether it’s sports, outdoor activities (like Fish and Alicia riding horses together ), playing board games, etc.
  • Go to bed mad!!!!!!!! Sometimes it is best to have a night to sleep on it and have a productive conversation the next daY
  • Never go to bed angry. Laughter is the key to happiness.
  • Never start re-dating your ex. They’re an ex for a reason!
  • Fall in love with their personality first, and their looks second. That is what's going to keep you loving them down the road.
  • They need to be a good Kisser! If not, dump ‘em.
  • Trust your gut, if something feels wrong it probably is….discuss certain things Before you get married or even engaged (money, debt, children and religion as well as what are you going to do about holidays
  • Always flirt with each other
  • Talk about money often and go through the bank statements together. Make sure you both know your financial state before making big purchases.
  • Live together before marriage! You never really, really know someone till you’ve lived with them.
  • Don't do it
  • Don’t marry someone thinking you’re going to change them. Either accept them exactly as they are or move on
  • If you don’t feel like a team before you get married you’re not going to magically become one after.
  • Don’t cheat!
  • Communication, mutual respect & comprise
  • Sometimes you have to agree to disagree
  • My mom always said: “a leopard doesn't change its spots.” I should’ve listened.
  • Find someone you can say exactly what’s on your mind to. If you're pissed or elated you can tell them and they won’t be offended by it or try to stop it. You shouldn’t have to ever hide your emotions….at least that’s what’s kept me and my sig other together for 21 yrs and counting
  • Don’t rush into it
  • Know your worth
  • Be honest be real be empathetic
  • Don’t date……. (Can’t say his name for legal reasons).
  • Always stand up for yourself. You can't stand up for others until you learn to do this. Relationships are about being there for each other.
  • Always Communicate Honestly and this goes for any relationship
  • Know yourself and know your partner
  • Don’t do it!!
  • Always be honest
  • Communication! Behaviors don’t come out right away so don’t rush it.
  • Communication. Communication. Communication. Every relationship question on here has to do with the lack of communication.
  • NEVER Allow anyone to treat you badly. You are worth so much more than that!!
  • It's not just communication. It's also comprehension . you need to hear and understand what your spouse is telling you
  • My father told me u get a woman pregnant u stay with her through thick and thin.
  • Do not go into a relationship thinking you are going to change them. If you love them you must love their faults as well as their positive traits.
  • Do what makes YOU happy. Not what you think will make others happy.
  • The heart and mind don't always want the same thing but always follow your heart or your mind will wonder what if
  • Learn how to fight the right way - arguments are inevitable so you have to have certain ground rules (nevvver name call, bring up divorce, etc.) and for me personally, space/time to cool down is imperative so you can communicate with a cool head.
  • Love yourself first.
  • Be true to yourself. Don’t forget who you are.
  • Trust and honesty are key to a long lasting relationship
  • Treat each other well... if you each look out for each other's happiness (within reason) and otherwise have a good connection... that should go a long way.
  • Do not comprise yourself for someone else's happiness!!
  • Respect each other and yourself. Communicate even if it's something the other may not want to hear. You can talk to each other without doing so hurtfully.
  • Communicate! If the significant other doesn’t want to communicate leave them! And don’t let a significant other use you!!!
  • Trust until they give you a reason not to. Believe whatever it is the first time.
  • Always be honest.
  • Practice healthy communication. Sounds so clinical and cliche but it’s so true.
  • Wait. Don’t rush.
  • You're not going to change that person. If they're not right from the get go, choose someone else.
  • Get a cat. Move to the Wilderness.
  • Communication is the only way And Don't go to bed mad
  • Communication and listening skills. Also don't go into a relationship thinking you can change someone. Love them for who they are or walk.
  • Don't trust every fart...sorry what's the? I've been drinking
  • Listen and learn to compromise
  • RUN ON THE FIRST RED FLAG.............DON'T STAY AND THINK IT IS GOING TO CHANGE OR GET BETTER.
  • When you’re fighting with your SO take a deep breath, calm down and let it roll off. I am a really reactive person and by stopping to calm down a moment has saved me from turning something small into a vicious argument
  • Learn from your mothers mistakes. Always be honest and have fun life’s too short
  • My father gave me this advice. He has told me since I was little that first you marry for money then you divorce and take half her money, now you're rich. So you go marry some smoking hot babe because your rich , then divorce her, then you marry for love because then you will be happy with your marriage and still have a quarter of your money from the first one
  • Don’t leave the toilet paper roll empty. (Literally And metaphorically)
  • Never ignore red flags and think they can be fixed
  • Pick and choose your battles. Fight for the ones that are worth it.
  • Never compromise your values, morals, standards for anyone.
  • First of all love yourself. Do things for yourself and be selfish there's nothing wrong with that. Don't settle. When you settle you are not happy. Don't be afraid to be alone and find yourself. Remember that you matter. Don't be in a hurry. There are so many fish in the sea. Be silly. Have fun. Chase the sunset. Most importantly, follow your dreams otherwise you'll have regrets. Love to all of you
  • Listen to your gut. If something feels off, it probably is.
  • Travel. See the world before you have kids. There is plenty of time for a family but when you have one, traveling is more of a chore than a vacation.
  • Never stop dating your partner and telling them you appreciate them
  • Stay Single and adopt a cat. (#definitelyNOTchristine)
  • Make sure you love yourself before committing to another. You can’t pour from an empty cup.
