Sure, we all have our own beliefs but some of the things people tend to think are one way end up being the exact opposite. Not everything is as it seems and sometimes we learn that the hard way.

Below I am going to go over some of the common misconceptions that come with relationships. While you might want everything to end up like it would in a fairy tale things are never going to come out like that. These common relationship beliefs are bullshit and you need to be aware of that before trying to find someone to settle down with.

7 Common Relationship Beliefs That Are Complete Bullsh*t:

1. Being in a relationship will complete you.

Being in a relationship will NOT complete you. You cannot find yourself in another person; this is something you have to do on your own.

2. Your partner should be your best friend.

Your partner should not be your best friend. While you and your partner should be friends you should also be able to have your own best friends outside of the relationship. Having only your partner to confide in gets old fast.

3. Finding the right partner will make you happy.

Finding the right partner is a wonderful thing but it won’t be your only source of happiness. If you are struggling with happiness you need to search for it within. Sure, they might fill the void for a little while but things won’t be happy go lucky all the time. It just doesn’t work like that.

4. The happiest couples love each other the most.

Sometimes the happiest couples are struggling the most. Just because you don’t see what is going on behind closed doors doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. There is a lot more to the relationships of others than you see.

5. All relationships start off with a spark.

Not all relationships begin in the most passionate ways. Sometimes they start gradually but on occasion, we might even fall for someone that we couldn’t even stand to begin with.

6. You have to get along with each other’s families and friends to be together.

You don’t have to get along with one another’s friends and families. You just need to be able to tolerate them for your significant other. Not everyone is going to be on the same page and get along as well as others will and it is a reality we just have to face.

7. The right relationship won’t be hard work.

The right relationship might not be as hard as some but it won’t be easy either way. There is no such thing as an easy relationship. Easy relationships are bullshit relationships that no one is putting effort into.
