How do you give up your single lifestyle to start a family?

Cupid’s Advice:

Being single usually means a life of late nights, a lot of alone time and decisions that only affect you and no one else.  When you enter a relationship or add a new addition to your family, nights are spent with someone else and decisions are made for a better relationship with your partner.  Here’s how to embrace the changes:

1. Accept them: Recognize that the change from being selfish in decision making to thinking about your partner is a positive change.

2. Take time: It may be hard at first, but getting into a new routine will allow you to become more serious about life.  Take the time you need to come to terms with it.

3. Think of the rewards: When losing weight, doctors suggest picturing a skinnier version of yourself every time you think about eating a slice of cake.  Every time you think that it will be hard to change your lifestyle, picture yourself with your family or partner.  Make sure that you and your partner are both making sacrifices in order to better the relationship.
