So you guys met, had some gala moments and it felt like a lifetime. Since, you’re high on love and it’s so tempting to jump into a new relationship, you hardly bother to give it second thoughts. But hey! Slow down a bit, take a few minutes, and let me make you aware of a set of rules you need to mug up before diving in this pool.
Planning to switch your relationship status? This article is made for you!
Have you trained yourself for waking up to the phone’s ring?
That too at 2 am? Don’t worry. It’s nothing serious. It’s just that your partner can’t sleep so they won’t let you do as well. Get up like a fox, hum a lullaby and wait for the conversation to go on till morning. I know there’s nothing to talk while you’re fighting off a spell of doziness. But that’s the rule!
Don’t let even a single event slip from your memory. It’s a sin!
Have you mugged up the calendar yet? You know once you jump into this mess, every next day is a new reason to celebrate. Remember a month ago, when you held hands for the first time? Yup! It’s your damn anniversary. Rush to wish now! And in case, you dare forget a date, buckle up to beg for the rest of the year.
Valentine’s week is the new Diwali
Throw your hard-earned salary, splash the savings, do whatever the hell it takes but make every Valentine’s one heck of a celebration. If your partner’s wardrobe isn’t flooded with gifts by the end of the week, you’ve failed in the relationship! And yes, wishing right at midnight is a must too. RIP sense! RIP maturity!
Your mistakes are never forgotten. They’re archived to use in the future argument!
If you think apologising is enough, you can’t be more mistaken. Nothing is ever erased from the relationship folder. Your good deeds may be, but not your bad ones. Your mistakes can be recalled whenever the opponent feels like losing. Remember, months ago when you were caught hitting on that cute girl at the store? So what if they said it’s okay. So what if you haven’t eyed upon anybody since then. You have lent them a masterstroke. Now, they’ll just toss it in the next fight, and wooah! They win!
Say sorry. Can’t you hear me? Just say sorry!
Because that’s the only way out if you wish to cut the discussion and go back to sleep. Imagine how miserable it’d be to spend the rest of the day struggling to prove your point, so just apologise and get the hell over it. I know it kills your self-respect but it at least saves you from the drama. Or else, if you wish to invest every ounce of your energy in flipping the argument, keep trying!
I hope you’ve learnt the rules like Bible. Congratulations on finally being eligible for a relationship. Go ahead and screw your life!
