When you see a conflict between what you expect from your partner and what actually happens, it creates stress, frustration, and insecurity.
Without communication, however, the only person that actually knows about this gap, is you.
The problem with going to the movies is the opposite.
There’s no interaction, and that means no chance to get to know each other more.
If you and your partner have discussed your expectations and you still feel that they aren’t being met, you must continue to communicate your needs to your partner, or know that it is time to get out.
If your partner is having his or her expectations met—getting what he or she wants from you—he or she will not have any reason to end the relationship.
The person you are meeting is probably just as anxious as you are. Even when they go badly, these meet ups are almost never as bad as you imagined.
Unlike feelings, expectations almost never change drastically within a relationship.
The longer you stay in a relationship due to temporary feelings or hope, the more frustration and pain you will inevitably experience.
You can avoid almost all of your future relationship problems by preventing them from ever happening, and living true to what type of relationship will truly make you happy.
