The right way to have really hard relationship conversations

I’m a big believer in the idea that the best things in life are not free! That’s right. Everything comes at a cost and I’m not talking about money, necessarily. The best things in life take a whole lot of hard work. Love is no exception. Technically, it doesn’t take any money to fall in love, but you spend a whole lot of time, effort and work on your relationship. And the most consuming and emotionally costly parts of relationships are the tough conversations. They’re not fun, but even the happiest couples have to have really hard conversations.

How to go from dating to a relationship

I was recently at a friend’s summer BBQ and I met a new woman. We chit chatted for awhile and then I asked if she was the girlfriend of the man she walked in with. Her answer was, “Yes? I think so? It’s been about three months of dating. So, yeah?” My take on her guess is, “Uh, no!” You should know when you’re someone’s girlfriend. Definitively. And if you don’t, you’re not. It’s that simple. That’s not to say that if you’re in a prolonged “just dating” situation, there’s no way to level up to “in a relationship.” Of course there is! That big step up is basically how all relationships start. Here’s how to make the leap if you’ve been in a “just dating” plateau for a while. Read more
