5 Things You Need to Know About the 80/20 Rule in Relationships
When you are in a relationship with someone, you might not like everything about him. After all, none of us is perfectly compatible with the other! A lot of women are only 80% satisfied with their partner. This is why they find another man who has that missing 20%!. A lot of such women realize later that they have made a major mistake by letting go of the real good guy. To avoid that as also to use the 80/20 rule to your benefit, here are some tips.
1. Find the missing 20% of your relationship/your boyfriend
Your relationship or boyfriend might be having some small flaws that irritate you or make you feel embarrassed sitting in a group. Your job is to find out what’s missing and work on it. So, jot down all the things you don’t like about your ‘next to perfect’ boyfriend and discover what is it that can make him ‘perfect’.
2. Communicate and enhance mutual understanding
If you don’t enjoy talking to someone, you can’t build a strong relationship with him. You have to enjoy his company! So, communicate with your partner. Let him know the things you like to talk about and find out things he likes to talk about!
3. Remember that no partner is going to be perfect
Nobody is perfect and that’s why every man you date will have some flaws. So, avoid dwelling on your partner’s negative traits and try to focus on the positive ones. Make a list of the 80% positive things he has along with the 20% things you don’t like in him. Appreciate him for his positive traits and work together on the negatives. Try to be his strength by making his weaknesses go away instead of blaming him for his negative attributes.
