Do you ever have doubts in...

Do you ever have doubts in your relationship? Do you find yourself at times just talking to the wall? One of the biggest challenges we experience in relationships is that we are all different. Although you are with someone or you are trying to get to know someone for a possible relationship these are ideas to help you have a better relationship.Life itself is challenging however life would honestly be dull if we were all the same.You need to Accept differences between each other. I know sometimes we want or feel like we want our partner to be more like us. The worst thing you can do is push yourself on your partner. Remember your Partner had a life before you entered it.
One of the most common reasons for the downfall of a relationship is one partner’s need to control the other.It takes time for one partner to start taking the other partner for granted, or control them.
And at the same time, your partner can never control you unless you give them that chance.If you’ve ever felt like your partner is trying to control you, even about small things you do, this is the time to put a stop to it before things get a lot worst.
One of the biggest problems with communication is that we have the assumption that the other person has understood the message we are trying to get across.We need to make sure and NOT assume. Listening and understanding what others communicate to us is the most important part of successful conversation.
Trust is learned and earned you’ll grant it, over time, to those who act supportive, dependable, and trustworthy.Let your partner know and see the real you.This will give your partner see the good and the bad even it reflects your insecurities.“If you’re open and self-revealing, your partner is more likely to be more open with you.” Too much togetherness can ruin a perfect relationship. Learn to give a little space. If you are living together plan one night a week out with friends or your family. If you decide to do this make sure you come home of course because if you don't there will be problems when you come home. Learn to enjoy that time away but show respect and come home at a decent hour.Knowing how to give space may be difficult, especially at the beginning.We must all understand that being close to each other and making time is important, but to come closer and become better individuals, you have to understand that relationships need space to grow and bloom. Your spouse or partner should be your best friend, and friends enjoy spending time with one another. If you and your partner like different activities try to decide on something you can do together. This could be a learning experience for both of you. Try something new and exciting together something completely different.Maybe skydiving , mountain climbing,or bungee jumping.
Let your partner know you love them today as you did yesterday. Surprise them with breakfast in bed,Leave little love notes around the house expressing your love.Personally I feel sometimes if the money is all good and bills are all paid up for the month, a surprise getaway for the weekend would be nice. My friends even for just one night away can be a big boost and bring life back into your relationship.

I am still looking for a partner...but scared at the same time. I have been stigmatized twice..and it hurt me to the soul if there is something like that. But I'm believing God to send me the right one at his own time.

yes it may take time a lot of people tend to meet others different ways not just going out and acting socializing. I have honestly had better luck on the web. Letting them know my status upfront to not have to deal with rejection face to face. I always put in my bios I am looking for friends only no hook ups, that i want the person to get to know me as a friend first,that every relationship needs a foundation. After a few conversations and video chats I let them know the work Ihave done or been involved with in the HIV commuity. Just by the reactions by some I know not to go into detail about myself Some are really negative and cruel and of course they go on my block list. Others I have found once i tell them are really accepting because most wont tell as soon or at all. I have gotton a lot of respect by others by just telling them. You will meet someone, and as they say the best comes to those who wait. The person will come at the right time. Best of Luck and thank you for your reply.

In 2005 the Women and HIV Think Tank changed its name to WRI to reflect the work of the group and ongoing commitment to measurable results in the management of HIV disease in women.

Did you just test positive for HIV? Look here for help on next steps, normal feelings, and finding support.

A Place at the Table: WATCH! is an eight-week webinar series that offers women living with HIV* capacity building and training on HIV disease and treatment advocacy.
