View Full Version : Relationship Rules

My buddy who has his own message board came up with this list. It's not a mandate, just simple suggestions and there are obvoiusly exceptions to the rules but here you go.


Here's my list, based on experience and observation, of basic rules to follow in a relationship. Hope this helps with any questions or future questions. A lot of this stuff is common sense, but sometimes you still need to be told:

1 - Never Settle.


You are responsible for your own happiness, so how does it make you happy to find somebody, and forge a relationship knowing full-well that person is not what you want? That's ridiculous logic, and it doesn't work. It doesn't matter if you've spent the last ten days or the last ten years alone; you're far better off on your own than seeing somebody and thinking to yourself, "This'll do." That works fine if all you're looking for is some ass. You can always kick them out the next morning, but it doesn't work after you've tied the not and locked yourself into something you can't so easily get out of. If you're going to put forth the effort it takes to make a working relationship, make sure the person is worth the effort.

2 - You are not a back-up plan.


If you're with somebody, and they decide that something better is out there and they leave you to pursuit it, that's it. Let them go and be done with it. If you fight for that person to stay, they will wonder for the rest of your relationship what could have been. That eventually will grow into resentment. If you don't fight, and they leave, find out the other person sucked, then too bad. You have already moved on. No second chances. Obviously, you weren't good enough for them the first time around, there's no reason to believe you will be the second time. People have to make choices. Then they have to live with those choices. It's not your job to be their safety net for when they fuck up, because they will only get up, and do it again, knowing full-well you'll be there to catch them once more. You are worth more than that and you deserve somebody that wants to be with you. Somebody that hasn't settled.

3 - Once an Asshole, always an Asshole


This ties in to Rule 5, but deserves it's own recognition anyway - If your partner cheats on you, hits you, berates you or treats you like shit in any other way - they'll do it again and again. And again. Abuse, physical or mental, is in their nature. It will never stop. There is no counseling, there is no help. There is only the door; use it. This is not up for debate, this is not open to discussion and there is never a valid excuse to stay with somebody like that. Yes, it is that easy. Situations like this, particularly the physical ones, but mental as well, will almost always end up in one of two ways - with the aggressor being lead out in handcuffs, or the victim being carried out in a fucking bag.

4 - Everything dies, let it go.


All life is is birth, life and death. This is no different in relationships. Relationships run their courses and then die. This is not a good or bad thing, it just is. Once a relationship has run its course, that's it. Kiss goodbye and move on with your life. What purpose does dwelling, crying and sobbing serve? What comes from moping and feeling sorry for yourself? Nothing. Does it not make more sense to accept that you had a good run, some good times and some great memories and carry that positive over into your next relationship? Becoming a vindictive pain in the ass afterwards does nothing but prove to people that maybe you didn't belong with that person in the first place. What's more, friends and acquaintances will avoid you, as they'll grow tires of your incessant bitching and moaning about your ex, or your never-ending string of foul comments about an ex. If the ex was so bad, what the fuck were you doing with them in the first place. Take a little responsibility for things. You knew who that person was 6 months into the relationship. It's your own fault for staying around long enough to get burned. And if you're the type that feels they have to be in a relationship, you're never going to find anything of any substance if you continue to bring in emotional baggage and nonsense stemming back from some slug that you can't manage to get over. In fact, you're probably going to chase away every person you meet, or find some bullshit subconscious way of sabotaging yourself or the other person. Again, if it's ten days or ten years, all you should take from a broken relationship are the good times that made you want to be with that person. The bad things were merely the natural decay. There is absolutely no benefit in keeping that shit with you and there's no reason you should torture your next love with it.

5 - People don't change.


The person you're with 6 or so months into it, after the newness has worn off, the sex has died down and reality has crept its way back in, is going to be that person for the rest of your lives. You cannot change them, you have no right to try. That is who they are, and if they don't mesh with you, then so be it. Again, it's not about good or bad, it just is. Not everybody works well and to stay involved with a person who does not deliver to you what you require is foolish. If you bought a TV that didn't work, would you keep it? No, of course not. Why bother? You take it back, or you throw it away. You keep in mind what brand it was and grow cautious of buying another one of the same model. People are no different. If a partner isn't working for you in anyway, end it quickly, friendly and peacefully, but end it. It's simply not going to work. Ever.

6 - The key to staying together is being apart.


You don't have to spend every waking hour with your partner. Let them have their own friends, and in turn, you get some friends yourself. Doing things together is important, yes, but so is doing things with other people. Tying yourselves at the hip makes for a boring existence. If you spend all your time together, you lose out on experiences and run out of stories. With nothing to talk about, life gets stale and the mind starts to wonder, invariably winding up creating lists of things your partner does that annoys the shit out of you. So go out and have fun with your friends. Come back home with stories that you haven't heard a thousand times over and experiences you were both there for. "Today, I went the...", "Yeah, I know. I was there. I hate you." Keeping communication open and fun, having new things to talk about, is vital, and you can't do that if the two of you live the exact same life.

7 - Mind your own fucking business.


Everybody has a past. Everybody has things that are just for them. Everybody. So it's none of your god damn business to try and figure out what your partner's secrets are. Going through purses, email, mail, text messages, IM history, phone records and whatever else you junior g-men figure can give you clues as to what your partner is up to whenever they're out of eyesight, is absolutely unacceptable. If you're so distrusting of that person, then you don't belong with them in the first place. You deserve to see everything you find. A lot of times people do this because they think they're being cheated on. If that's how you feel, then come out with it and make your own judgements. Or if you're sure they are cheating, then just leave. Again, what good does it do you to dwell and seethe with every worse-case scenario your silly little brain can come up with running through 24/7? Just leave. Conversely, if you catch somebody running through your shit, then that's the end of it as well. Why would you choose to stay with a person so lacking of trust. Chances are they're behavior stems from their own guilty conscious. It's best for everybody involved to just nip it clean and move on with their lives.

8 - Listen to your friends.


When you first meet somebody new, you lose your grip on all logic and perception. The person is perfect. They're funny, good looking, sweet and everything great you can possibly want in a person. Your friends, more often than not, aren't so blind. They have no emotional attachment. They're still seeing life as it really is, so if you find yourself with a new partner and notice that your friends don't really want to come around anymore, that's we refer to as...a clue. Listen to them. If you're lucky, you have at least one friend who has no problem telling you you're fucking up. At the very least, ask your friends what they think of the person. They may be hesitant to say anything, but you need to press the issue, if only a little bit. If your friends are hesitant to give an opinion, then that would be clue #2. They know you better than you do at that particular point. You're vulnerable to whatever bullshit the new toy sells you, your friends are not. Listen to them.

9 - Not everybody is cut out for a relationship.


There's no rule stating you have to be partnered up with somebody for the rest of your life. The fact is, a lot, if not most, people are better on their own and some people just plain don't deserve to be in a relationship. Don't fall victim to Norman Rockwell paintings or guilted into bad relationship after bad relationship through Hallmark Holidays. Before you can ever be happy with somebody else, you must first learn to be happy by yourself.

10. love because of, not in spite of.

this is something my mother always says and i think it's a good addition to the list. like i prefer to be with someone who genuinely loves that i laugh loudly during movies and such, not someone who just puts up with it.

and while i do think your close friends opinions are important, they're not always accurate. my friend jill is convinced that the man that was "perfect" for me was this guy i only dated for a few months and can barely stand to even talk to anymore. he just annoys the pants off me. so while your friends opinions do matter, they aren't always dead on.

i rarely ever offer my "real" input with regards to my friend's significant others. unless they come to me with a black eye, i let them live their life and try to support them in their decision as best i can. they may realize what some of us have seen all along in due time or they may not. the point is, me being an asshole to their s/o or grilling them everytime a friend talks to me about someone they're dating that i don't like isn't going to help the situation and will only alienate the friendship. unless a friend is doing something really, really stupid, keep your mouth shut and let people make their own mistakes. such mistakes are generally fun for awhile and give people experience to learn from anyways.

Be a bitch, apparently men prefer it that way. I use to be oh so nice to my ex, always trying to make him happy, now that I am bitchy and hate him he suddenly cant live without me and is being the guy I wanted him to be when we were together. We spend more time together now then what we did when we were living in the same house. So apparently the bitch thing works.

I think it is more along the lines of that is what he is used to. Real men would not like this but unfortunately my ex is still a boy. A 33 year old boy. But he is fun to hang out with, shoot pool with and ummm "hang out" with. Just as long as I don't let myself get attached and continue treating him like shit and reinforcing the fact that I can do what I want, when I want, with whom I want. It makes him want me even more. boys are weird.

No. Boys aren't weird. THAT boy is weird. If my girl is bitchy all the time and tries to be the man in the relationship..... then she better change her ways or im out. It should be equal. Nothing is worse than a mandilon lol.

oh we disagree, but arguing?, for the birds. slight attitude, then an agreement to discuss later when calm. i refuse to argue. people tend to say things that they then wanna regret, and say sorry about and shit. fuck that. if you can't keep your cool and discuss it, we don't need to talk about it.

I'm getting there myself. My thoughts on relationships have changed quite a bit in the past months. I feel I belong in the last of that list. Some people just aren't meant to be in relationships. I do much better on my own it seems. I have more fun and there is so much less drama then if in a relationship. I have enough drama as it is without having to worry about it from a guy. So I just have fun and when it stops being fun I am out.

After being married/divorced, and now married again...a lot of what Fax posted does ring true. Don't Settle really hits home for me. I settled on my first wife. I learned my lesson there!

Communication is the key. Your SO isn't a mind reader, and neither are you. You should be able to be 100% honest with them, even if what you may say will sting a bit. My current marriage is light years better than my first for this very reason.

It's weird. I kinda revel in it. I know it's mostly because I put way to much into my last relationship and it was with someone who probably can't get along with anyone, especially since the new guy called me up a few weeks ago asking me exactly that question. He literally asked me if I thought he should bail. Problem is, i like them being together so I told him to make sure he was positive he wanted to do it and has exhausted all avenues of dialog. They are still together. I guess it's only a matter of time.

Not to get too personal or dwell but I made a list of 10 reasons (yes I wrote this down) of why I should break up with this girl so I would be able to deal with it. I made this list 3 weeks into the relationship. I moved in with her after a month, we got a house after a 8 months and stayed together for 4 years while caring for 2 kids and having 3 dogs.

If only I read that peice of paper and kept reminding myself it was a bada idea and took the high road when I had the chance. I might not have wasted 4 years. lol.

another hard one for me to learn was to just "sleep on it". sometimes you end up arguing something for an evening and by the end of it you haven't gotten anywhere. plus when you're tired and emotional, you aren't going to be in the best place to work out anything. i know they say "don't go to bed angry", but sometimes issues are larger than a one night conversation or may just require a new day's perspective on things to get the situation resolved.

i used to always try not to "go to bed angry", but after a few years i realized that sometimes a good night's rest helps you wake up and go "what the hell were we even fighting about?"

i also agree about listening and not just waiting for your turn to speak. i've also tried to incorporate some of my business communication techniques by using the word "you" as little as possible. instead of saying "you said you'd be here and you weren't" i'd say "i felt disappointed that i didn't get to see when we agreed to see each other" or whatever. obviously you have to say you sometimes, but it really helps in my experience. the second people hear "you" in a conversation, they instantly focus on trying to shift the blame rather than actually solve the problem.

and dear god don't talk about shit at work. there's NOTHING i hate more than getting an e-mail/text/call/whatever about a relationship problem while i'm working. unless it absolutely cannot be avoided, save your thoughts for when i'm not at work.

i also agree about listening and not just waiting for your turn to speak. i've also tried to incorporate some of my business communication techniques by using the word "you" as little as possible. instead of saying "you said you'd be here and you weren't" i'd say "i felt disappointed that i didn't get to see when we agreed to see each other" or whatever. obviously you have to say you sometimes, but it really helps in my experience. the second people hear "you" in a conversation, they instantly focus on trying to shift the blame rather than actually solve the problem.

and dear god don't talk about shit at work. there's NOTHING i hate more than getting an e-mail/text/call/whatever about a relationship problem while i'm working. unless it absolutely cannot be avoided, save your thoughts for when i'm not at work.

No joke...that whole "Don't go to bed angry" is a crock of shit.

It only works until one of you get into another relationship, then the friendship is usually over. Most new boyfriends and/or girlfriends don't appreciate an ex hanging around, no matter how friendly they are.

Dude, that's not only unfunny but it lacks creativity. I mean you got desperate by adding on "debilitated parasitic twins" but for christ sake, it doesn't even make any god damned sense you fool. Go ahead and read it back. You say if we had single interesting thing to say then you wuld have to come up with new material.

Well, I was fine with just being friends until a week ago when she went on a date with another guy. Not cool with it so I'm leaving the situation for a bit. Hopefully it's just temporary because we were good friends before we even got together. Many layers to that onion.

Not my rules as I don't really have any blanket rules. I say that's a case by case situation. It depends on how the relationship ended. If it ended on good terms then stay friends. Why not? You can't worry about other peoples insecurities your whole life because you found you can't be lovers anymore but you can be friends with the person. If the next person comes along and doesn't like it, if they can't justify it then they are simply insecure. Now if you are going to hang out with the ex all the damn time then there maybe a different issue.

It takes awhile to get to the point of being able to be friends. It was very difficult for me to be friends with my ex at first because I knew he was with another girl. So I stayed away for a couple months. Now he broke up with the girl and wants me back, but I know that he hasn't changed so I am trying to just be friends (with benifits). But I wouldn't have been able to do any of that without first taking a few months away from him.

Yeah there was no break at all. The break up happened about 3 months ago. We were friends with benefits up until a month ago. Hell, 2 weeks ago she was texting me wanting to come over because she needed to get off. A week later she went out with another guy. And it's not a one-date thing. I can't be around that right now, but maybe one day we can be normal friends. We were pretty much best friends before we got together. Whatever. Lol.

Delete her number from your phone (even if you have it memerized it helps). Force yourself not to call her for a week. Then after a week give her the quick hey whats up call. But don't get too chatty, just be breezy. Then it will become easier and easier not to call. And who knows, people always want what they can't have.

That's pretty sound advice. As trite and gay as it might sound, I'll be kicking my best friend out of my life. But I'm looking out for myself. If we're really as tight as we think we are, we'll pick up right where we left off after a break.

It works everytime. And by the time she comes back you may not even want her anymore. Although I am all talk and my friends seem to think I am more invested in this thing with my ex then I should be. But I can't help that I like hanging out with him and sleeping next to him. Just as long as I know he is a lieing cheating male whore I am fine.

A big difference with me and you is you get to sleep with him and he clearly wronged you. She didn't wrong me in any way other than she couldn't be with me (which I don't blame her, PM me if you even care to know why lol). And we haven't slept together in weeks. The thought of her with another guy makes me ill. Hopefully this upcoming break does the trick.

And I am not speaking for all girls, there are many girls who love the nice boys, I wish I was one of them. But I have actually stopped dating guys who were too nice. It was boring. I like to go out, have fun, shoot pool, dance and be silly. Nice guys tend to like to stay home and watch movies and hold hands and gaze longingly. Yuck.

Does he ever bother performing live anymore? A buddy of mine was stoked because he thought that David Byrne was performing with him on the upcoming tour.

That was rumored. Turned out to be false, Byrne is going out on tour playing music by the both of them.

You guys want to know the secret to a good relationship??? do ya?? ok... let me tell you.

There are two key things you have to have....


1. The ability to read situations for what they are.

2. A big penis.


I wont explain why or get into more details unless asked.

nice guys tend to finish rather quickly ;)

seriously though, girls like nice guys. it's boring doormats we tend to avoid. also, how hot/endowed you are tends to throw all the nice/bad boy stuff out the window. though it doesn't mean we'll keep you around forever, it just means we're more likely to give you a chance. shallow, but true.

Not in my case. I finish last in the right situations :thu You just gotta run into the right one.


yes unfortunatly some of us have this thing for the bad boys. not sure why. bleh

And theyre the ones that cheat and beat on you too.


do nice guys finish last cause i seem to get no play from the girls

Keep being a nice guy man. Theres not too many around now days. Just make sure you deliver when it counts :winkiss


crossword puzzle books are good too

haha Thats always a good ice breaker


newspaper or magazine + toilet = relaxation.

Now we're talkin


Why? She has gone to 4 coachellas with me and it was her idea to do APW as our honeymoon.

Thats a keeper you got there. Congrats

sorry to uncover this thread but i didn't want to make another for my gripes.

is it a bad idea to send my ex flowers on valentines day purely as a friendly thing and to let her know i've been thinking about her and care about her?

we dated for a year and half and i broke up with her because i felt that the relationship had run its course. also, part of me felt that i was only staying in the relationship out of a feeling of obligation. like i was being pressured into staying with her when i didn't really know if i wanted to or not. i was moving away soon and it just seemed like the right thing to do.

we've been broken up for about 6 months but it's only the past month that we haven't had any sort of contact. in the past month i've really been regretting leaving her and miss her a lot. i don't want to get back with her just yet. i care about her too much to get her hopes up and then leave her again when my stupid 19-year-old mind tells me to. i don't want to do the on-again-off-again routine because she's better than that. i know that she would get back together with me though.

so knowing this, is sending her flowers on valentines day a bad call? like a dozen yellow roses or something...

Yes. It is a bad call. You say you don't want to get her hopes up, so doesn't send her flowers.

Just send a card with what you have to say in it, that way there's no confusion on the message you're trying to give

do you actively want a relationship with this person and are you willing to fight for that?

if the answer to that is no, do not do anything for her for valentine's day whatsoever. that just sends mixed signals and will get her hopes up, like blackswan said. plus, she'll over analyze every aspect of whatever you do and when you ultimately decide not to pursue a relationship, she'll be pissed at you.

if you miss her company & friendship, there's no problem with reaching out and saying hi to see how things are going. do not though talk about how much you regret leaving her if you do not want a relationship. you're just going to depress her. keep it about being friends again.

my first love just loves to come around every so often to talk about what an idiot he was and it always sends my heart into a tizzy. it doesn't even mean i want to get back with him, it just confuses me and kinda depresses me. so keep it about being friends and that's it.
