Cupid’s Advice:

There’s no question all relationship need work, but they should also be fun and not that hard. When you want to make some one happy, especially your partner  it can be easy to get loss in unnecessary drama or let yourself freak out about something more than what you should. Cupid has some advice on how to keep unneeded pressure out of your relationship:

1.Don’t focus too much on trying to please them: It’s true every couple has to each put in time and energy to make a relationship work, but that doesn’t mean you have to devote all your time and energy to them. Focus less on trying to please them, because it will just force situations and that can make your significant other feel uncomfortable or it can come off as desperate. Just relax and focus on being yourself around them, after all they already fell for the ‘real’ you.
