🎵 Meet me in the middle 🎵
Everyone we date, no matter how similar they may seem, will have their differences from us. We are all unique individuals, raised with unique ideas and born to unique parents. There will be disagreements. However, these disagreements don’t have to end in disaster if you know how to handle them.
First realize that nobody “wins” in an argument. Everyone is a loser. Therefore limit them as much as possible. However if one is simply impossible to avoid, discuss it with your partner in a calm setting, where both of you feel at ease. After discussing your points and after hearing what you partner has to say and seeing there is still no agreement, aim for meeting in the middle.
As any negotiations go, you sometimes need to remove some of your requirements to make it more appealing to the other side. The key here is to meet in the middle, to avoid heated debate and make sure that even though the agreement may not be completely to your liking, both people come out satisfied or at the very least understanding of each other.
