Ever heard the saying ‘start as you mean to go on’? For those who haven’t, it means to start with the same energy you mean to continue with on something, and it’s essential when it comes to relationships.
In many cases, people who are dating end up “falling” into a committed relationship out of a sense of routine, and couples may end up living together even when they are unsure if they belong together. Instead, start your relationship with purpose.
