Success of our relationship will be based on the way we treat each other. Nothing more, nothing less.
1. Be true to me
Honesty is the best policy. There’s no need to lie to me or yourself about the way you’re feeling. Ever.
If something is bothering you, let me know so we can work together to fix it. And if you don’t want my help fixing whatever problem is on your mind, let me know that, too. I will gladly step aside if you need your space.
If I’m doing something that upsets or annoys you, ask me to stop. I sometimes struggle with criticism, but I’d rather you tell me the truth than fill up to the brim with emotions and eventually explode when I say I don’t want to see that Zac Efron “Baywatch” movie with you. (I will totally go see that, though, because The Rock is in it, and he’s dope.)
I won’t hide anything from you, so you shouldn’t feel like you need to hide anything from me. And if you do feel like you need to hide things, there better be some sort of scavenger hunt going on. Otherwise, you’ll be on a search of your own: for a new boyfriend.
