The relationship between friends or partners could be perfect. However, sometimes this relationship could grow bitter and sour. But in spite of the upheavals in the romantic relationship, there is always a chance for the betterment in the relationship. When a new relationship starts, one finds oneself, that as a unique cherish-able experience. This experience is not unique for an entire first experience, but it can be unique even if it’s not the first. Though, it’s not at all easy to predict the outcome of a relationship when it is new until and unless the partners have spent several moments together making the relationship stable. Every partner’s romantic relationships might not be pleasant in the long run too. Some partners might ditch, betray the other or might be selfish or unfaithful towards the other. But there is also an unlimited possibility that one might come across some person who seems just perfect for the other. In a perfect romantic relationship between partners, the partners in their attitude are very compatible with each other. This compatibility lacks in generally failed relationships.
Dating means actively meeting people and spending time with them. A friendship develops from these dates, and the friendship might be for a long run or for a short span of time. Even from these dates, romantic feelings develops between the daters and they might in future decide to marry each other. Thus the romantic relationships are also initiated via means of dating. However, one thing is certain that even if one person is a perfect lover and is selfless in his or her attitude, but if the person is dating another person who isn’t compatible with his or her attitude towards the partner then the relationship can leave both the partners feeling bitter and sour.
Dating can also be of a casual nature. The purpose behind this casual dating is that if one does not look for a commitment in a relationship. One spends quality time with someone one likes, and it is a sort of hanging out with a friend, have chats and gossips and return. Here too, fine-tuning of one’s mindset should have compatibility with his or her casual date friend.
Types of Relationships:
Monogamous Relationships – Monogamous relationship means being in a relationship with someone for an extended period of time (or whole life), not having any other partner.
In a monogamous relationship, partners understand each other and are able to meet emotional needs that strangers won’t be able to.
Loyalty, trust, respect, understanding, fidelity, are a few words that comes with a monogamous relationship. Monogamy is followed by a majority of the people in the society, not just because society approves of it but people feel secured and it is more meaningful.
However, if you have commitment issues and feel like you can’t live with one person the whole life, monogamy is not for you. It’s for those who want a loyal and secured relationship.
Monogamy needs a serious commitment by both the partners!
Polyamorous Relationships – Poly means “many” and Amour means “Love”, hence, “many loves” which means Polyamory.
Polyamorous relationship means having more than one sexual partner, with all partners agreeing to the agreement or having a consent with one another. Unlike open relationships, where partners may be sexually involved with others outside the relationship but remain committed to one another, polyamorous people are often committed to love multiple partners.
Polyamory is all about respect, understanding, and open communication among the partners involved in the relationship. People involved in this relationship can be heterosexual, bisexual, and lesbian, gay. It can include combinations of people of different sexual orientations.
This relationship emphasizes on choosing as many partners as one wishes to be involved and do not accept any social norms of loving only one person at a time.
Open Relationships – Open relationship is not a new phenomenon, but if you have not been in one, you might feel it’s confusing, thrilling, or might not accept it.
Open relationship is all about letting yourself and your partner date outside your relationship as well. There are no strings attached to the relationship. And if you are comfortable seeing your partner flirting with someone else, open relationship is for you. And if you get jealous and possessive about your relationship, I would suggest not to go for it.
Open relationships are about being open. An open relationship cannot work if you hide certain things from your partner. If you and your significant other are perfectly fine being in an open relationship, go for it. Just don’t opt it as many people around you are in the open relationship. If you are not the type of being in an open relationship, you will face problems in your relation.
Relationships can be both in terms of love and sex and they can be either long-term or short-term. People usually enter into an open relationship to get more out their relationship needs. For example, the couple might be facing a sexual desire mismatch, then one can see open relationship as an option. However, every couple is different. There are many other ways to meet your relationship needs.
Long-Distance Relationships – A romantic relationship between two partners who cannot meet regularly since they live far away from each other and can date very few times over a very long period.
Finally, it can be said from the above observations, that a perfect relationship doesn’t need two perfect partners but all that an ideal romance need is merely two people who are compatible to each other and have the same expectations from their imagination of love and life. In a relationship, if equality exists between the two partners, that is, if they help each other and inspire each other in an equal way, then the relationship will be everlasting.
Relationship growing through dating concept could be advantageous or even might be non-beneficial. Hence the partners should be extremely cautious at the beginning and only if they find their other partner compatible with their thoughts, then only they should pursue further dates with that partner.
