If you feel like you missed the class that taught everything you needed to know about dating and you just can’t make these things called relationships work, you may be stuck in some unhealthy romantic patterns.
Recognize how your past relationships have progressed early on and evaluate if your current (or future) relationship is following the same pattern. Think about when certain milestone events took place: the first kiss, the first time you said, “I love you,” the first time you indicated a commitment.
Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with strong feelings of attraction—it’s how individuals handle their passion that causes the relationship to evolve in a healthy or unhealthy way.

Many relationships start with a high degree of infatuation and ecstatic feelings.
Often these intense relationships become physical, or even sexual, prematurely and the individuals make “implicit commitments.” Other relationships unfold much more rationally and evenly.
As you review your relationships, do you see the same kinds of personality traits in your partners?
If so, carefully consider if your next partner is falling in line with his or her predecessors. Are there similarities in the family background of the people you’ve been involved with?
Taking a look at the past can ensure a brighter future.
