Whether you’ve already been in a relationship for several years, or you’re planning to move in together, here are a few little secrets for life as a couple.
The first magic word on the list is communication.
You have to be sure that your choice is freely consented and shared. Do not place yourselves in the same household under duress (economic or other…). If you’re serious, it’s important to find a new apartment when you move in together, if possible, and not to live in the same place where one or the other is already living, because you’ll need a bigger space to keep from suffocating. Finally, you should discuss the financial aspects so that it’s clear how you’ll be sharing the expenses.

Moving in and making compromises
Moving is the first real test for any couple because compromises will be numerous and inevitable. The important thing is that both of you say clearly what you think or feel, how you see things, without locking yourselves up in doubt and resentment.
In life as in the evolution of a couple, compromises are necessary and constant. The result is constantly unbalanced because everyone tends to think, at one time or another, that they are giving up more than the other person is. This is not at all negative and on the contrary, this imbalance leads to dialogue and discussion, and often to better ways of living together. In the life of a couple, nothing is ever permanent and in order to establish perfect harmony in a relationship, equitable compromises are a must.
Creating an atmosphere that mixes each person’s tastes isn’t obvious, but usually one person is more interested than the other in how the home is organized. Be careful to preserve a little living space where there is no turf war. Everyone needs their own space, a space where there can be order or disorder, a space where the other person will not try to impose a common set of rules.
You girls, you’ve agreed to keep his big couch that’s comfortable but not very attractive, and that’s a good start. Also leave him some living space, let him listen to his music, let him have his PlayStation, his collection of “Star Wars” figures, his dirty motorcycle boots taking up space by the entrance! He certainly won’t make any comments if you decide to keep all your pairs of shoes, even the most has-been…
When it comes to the decor, you’ll have to negotiate. Before you set up your bed with ribbons, tell him how important it is for a princess to decorate her palace as she pleases. If he resists you, negotiate again, seduce, bite, beg! Gentlemen, leave the bedroom to her and organize another space for yourself…
The pink carpet
Princess or lady of the house?
Are daily chores harmful to harmony and seduction in a relationship?
Yes, and they are inevitable. You have to learn to share them, there’s no point in starting to make a list… no, it’s important to know how to respect and appreciate the other person’s efforts and labor, it’s important to your life together.
Gentlemen, you aren’t living at your mom’s house any more! Make a little effort, hang your coat on the coat rack, put your dirty clothes in the hamper, lift up the toilet seat… Well, I won’t name everything because that would take up all the space in my article.
All your good instincts will help protect your princess and they’ll also help you a lot one day if you have children together. And believe me, they won’t be there just for a holiday, hence the inevitable question of the baby sitter that always comes up. :-)
If Daddy is a King in the eyes of a child, in your relationship I advise you to remain a Prince!! Because a lot of times, men who are properly installed in their domain have a tendency to want more and to become (King).
It’s late and you decide to go to bed
Girls, don’t go to bed with your XXL size T-shirt from the 1980s, show off your femininity, and do it by putting on a nice, comfortable outfit. To do that, think lycra, lace, or cotton.
If you happen to miss your waxing session, no worries… sleep in pajama bottoms and with a little luck, he won’t even notice it. As for you, gentlemen, take a quick shower before bed (especially after an active day), it’s really nice for a woman to snuggle up with a guy who exudes freshness and a pleasant fragrance…
First things to do when you wake up
So ladies, are you the type of person who likes get up early? As soon as you hear your alarm, don’t hesitate to be the first one into the shower. Think about your breath and brush your teeth and hair, and why not… go have a little cuddle with your man who’s still in dreamland… Gentlemen, it’s the weekend and your little princess needs a little more sleep? It’s nice to let her sleep and to go find some nice bagels and get the breakfast ready…
Especially in the morning if possible, be cheerful, sly, cuddly, because a woman who pouts at breakfast isn’t TOPS and it affects the brain, you’re going to make him start thinking… Always try to be in a good mood. Gentlemen, this is perhaps the moment to pay her a few compliments and to think about a small bouquet of flowers – you’re familiar with the concept of flower delivery with a little card? That strange thing that makes any girl melt? Do it from time to time…
Would you like a little more salad?
In general, men love to eat heartily without worrying about all the little calories: pizza, good meat, dishes with sauce, pasta dishes. You girls, you’d rather just stick to salad, fish and grilled meats? Above all, take care of your figure!!!… Gentlemen, aren’t you a little too fixated on her weight? Let your princess find her own balance and invite her now and again to eat some good food, take her out to a restaurant!
WHAT? You went shopping… If you’re married …
Carefully hide your credit card receipts. It isn’t really necessary to always tell each other everything in a relationship. Or to always be nice, smiling and seductive. It’s normal to have a few “SMALL” expenses… So do your accounts in the office and when you come home… remember to put the bags inside other bags! These little tips should protect your relationship from potential financial disagreements. Even if you see him as a prince, he doesn’t have a gold mine.
