Found on AskReddit.

1.

Don’t stay with someone who only upsets or belittles you.

2

If you feel good on your own, you better be alone.

3

Know when to go.

4

You can assess a person’s love for you by the way they treat you when they’re mad at you.

5

Love is a verb, not a noun.

When a light bulb goes out, you fix the bulb. You are not buying a new house.

7.

Don’t settle for someone who has no regard for your feelings or desires just because you’ve been together for a long time.

8

Just because you love yourself doesn’t mean you’ll be okay in the long run.

9

No relationship is perfect and there will be conflicts. What matters is the desire to solve the problem.

10.

Always fight the problem, not the other person. If you keep this in mind when you argue, you will be able to resolve the issue rather than being angry with each other.

11

Don’t look for a girl you want to treat like a princess, look for a girl you want to treat like a partner.

12

Don’t disparage your partner behind their back.

13

Confidence is not “I know she loves me”, confidence is “it will be okay whether she likes me or not. “

14

You can be compatible with a number of people. Nobody is perfect. You have to work on love.

15

You don’t have to put yourself down to spare others.

16

Marry the one who gives you the same feeling as when you see good food in a restaurant.

17

The grass isn’t greener on the other side, it’s greener where you water it.

18

Stop trying to find the right person and start trying to be the right person.

19

The person who cares the least about the relationship has the most control.

20

Don’t get into a relationship just by what it takes to be a couple.

21

It is better to be happy than to be right.

22

Always be the first to sincerely apologize after an argument.

23

You can’t expect someone to love you when you can’t love yourself.

24

Just because you liked the friend’s version of someone doesn’t mean you’ll like their romantic version.

25

Before you move in with your partner, go on a trip with him or her.

26.

Don’t be afraid to open up and be vulnerable. Vulnerability can bring you together and strengthen you.

27

Remember that when you argue with the security officer, he is the problem. Not you against him.

28

Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with everything they have.

29

Don’t just fall in love with someone’s potential.

30

It takes two happy individuals to establish a happy relationship.

31.

If the world didn’t give themselves a second chance, we’d all be single.

32

Everyone is looking for the right person, but no one is trying to be the right person.

33

If you love the memories more than the relationship, maybe now is the time to move on.

34

Just because someone is good or perfect for you doesn’t mean you are good for them.

35

If it’s broken, fix it. If you are confused about how many repairs were made, or if the cost of the repairs far exceeds the initial expense, ask yourself questions.

36

Of all the things necessary for a successful relationship, love barely ranks at the top 5. Honesty, loyalty, trust, and communication all need to be present.

37

Always hold hands with each other when talking about difficult things. It helps to control negative emotions and show that you both care.

38

Be the man or woman you would like to date in the future or for now.

39

Love is about appreciation, not possession.

40

Don’t go to bed angry. Everything will be there and worse in the morning.

41

Continue to seduce your lover, even if you are in a committed relationship. Otherwise, another person will.

42

If someone threatens to leave, help them pack their bags.

43

Don’t keep any secrets, don’t lie.

44

Sometimes you have to be wise and let go. Yes, it hurts. But it will hurt more in the future.

45

Relationships are not difficult. If it’s difficult, you are probably with the wrong person.

46

Love is not a feeling. Feelings fade, change, react to situations, and events. Love is a choice.

47

If it doesn’t go well at first, it will probably never get better.

48.

If you do the math, then you’ve already lost.

49

Love is an action, not a feeling. It is an acquired and developed skill, not an experience. Not that the romantic feeling doesn’t exist or isn’t a wonderful part of the relationship, but that doesn’t make it last.

50

The best sign of a healthy relationship isn’t on Facebook.
