When you’re in a relationship, there are some people you should avoid.
Relationships and marriages should be sacred spaces between two people, free of distractions and outsiders.
Sadly, this is not the case. Many outsiders and intruders can enter your relationships. Here are some pesky intruders:
- The best friends
Your partner should be your closest companion. Promixity makes it easy for sexual and romantic feelings to develop.
You may have had other best friends before them, but once you’re in a relationship, it’s time for those friends to step aside so your partner can take their place.
And it doesn’t have to be anything spectacular. Simply make a mental note of who and what is most important to you now that you are in a [serious] relationship.
- People who are simply overly nice
Even if your partner is unconcerned about that nice colleague or neighbor, you don’t know what the ‘nice’ person’s hidden intentions are, and you don’t want to feel obligated to them.
So, be cautious around such people.
- Exes or ex-friends with advantages
Many people enjoy informing their ex-partners or other intimate partners that they are now in a relationship, and who can blame them?
One of the most important things you can do is set boundaries and let people know you’re unavailable.
- Snapchat slay queens and Instagram baddies
Never underestimate the strength of a slay queen. If you know you’re attracted to someone online, the best thing to do is mute or unfollow them or do anything else that will make you less tempted.
Some friends have your best interests at heart, while others do not. You never know what someone’s heart is like, so avoid discussing unnecessary details about your relationship with them. Many women have lost boyfriends to their friends.
Even guys make advances on the babes of their friends.
You don’t want to give any of these people more space than is necessary in your relationship.
