We often think cheating is the final threshold for any relationship, but there are few things that can do equal or more harm to your personal bond with the significant other. Don't make the mistake of taking any of these lightly.

Lying to your partner, even the small ones

Just understand this, ‘lying is never good’ even if it’s about a very small thing. Lying creates trust issues as well as a gap or space which can be very difficult to fill.

Lack of communication

Now that doesn't mean that you keep on calling and texting your partner every other hour. But it is recommended that you have a healthy and open line of communication between yourselves. Or else, you would just drive each other away and by the time you realize, it will be too late.

Being stubborn

Sometimes being a little stubborn can be considered as cute, but when it starts an argument or starts hurting the feelings of your partner, you should take it as a sign to back off. Learn to sometimes give in to the person you love.

Manipulating your partner

Relationships are not a game

Stop puppeteering

No one likes to be manipulated or played with, it’s one of the worst feelings in the world.

Trying to make your partner jealous

Stay away from the curse of jealousy

Jealousy is almost like cheating, because even though you didn't cross the line, you gave the other person a glimpse of what it would be like if you did and their heart broke every single time.

Pretending to love

Dont kill love by committing such a crime

Don’t kill love by committing such a crime

Pretending to love someone when clearly you don’t is equal to a crime. It doesn’t matter why you did it, whether you are sick of being alone or whether you need someone to depend on (financially). It is just plain wrong!

Confiding in a third person

Dont confide in the wrong person

Don’t confide in the wrong person

Confiding in some other person, even if that is your best friend is never good for a relationship. Telling your partner’s secrets or the intimate details about your relationship will just cause trust issues and that can also easily convert into bigger problems.
