5 Lessons You Must Learn from Your First Relationship
1. The relationship is a hard work.
Movies and books taught us that love is beautiful and truly worth the waiting. However, even the most realistic films cannot describe how hard it is sometimes to keep on loving each other. The feeling is not the only thing required. You also need a solid patience and a beautiful mind to overcome some possible obstacles. In fact, the remarkable passion that nourishes your partnership in the very beginning will subside eventually. Therefore, you will have to understand if you are able to uphold your love in the course of time, which is not as simple as it seems.

2. It takes time and effort to get used to each other.
Once again, books and movies omit that part. When you become a couple and live together, some unexpected things occur and ruin all the magic: your partner’s habits. Some of them might be quite irritating. Overall, you need to get accustomed to how your girlfriend perceives the world. If you truly love each other, you will be happy even having radically dissimilar horizons and points of view. If not, this relationship is not worth the struggle.

3. You may eventually fall out of love.
Not all the marriages and partnerships exist infinitely. Do not be afraid to admit that you are no longer into your girlfriend. Yes, it sounds hurtful and offensive, but such things happen and you have no other option than to say it aloud. Maintaining burnt out relationships is no healthier than keeping a dead pet just because you used to love it so much when it was alive. Some things should be buried, the sooner – the better.

4. (Good) Sex is necessary for your healthy communication.
You might remember some of your friends having a strong and loving relationship without sex or with a moderately small amount of it. Well, such cases are rather exceptional. Apparently, most of the couples require a healthy sex life as an accompaniment to their communication. In fact, people do not always click in bed. They need time to learn their partner’s preferences.

5. The breakup is a hurtful process.
Once again, you might have heard about couples getting out of a relationship without scandals and fighting. Unfortunately, it is a very rare occasion. Most of the young partnerships molder away because of cheating, miscommunication, inability to understand each other etc. And, of course, these reasons are always garnished with cries, arguments, and things you might never have said in other situations.
