1. Don't issue a bunch of restrictions and guidelines.

"Skdjflksd! You telling me that you lied for years, pretending you were going to the library, breaking your parents’ rules so you could be in a relationship with a boyfriend and follow his rules?!"

2. Don't make everything about your partner/relationship.

"And I have so many bills to pay."

"Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, Jack has an Uncle Bill."

"And it’s just getting really hard."

"Yeah, last night Jack got—"


4. Don't fall into the cycle of hot/cold, on/off, love/hate.

"We’ve been together for five years."

"This is it. We are never getting back together."

"But, like, he apologized!"

"I cannot believe he cheated on me again."

"I swear — this is the last time."

"We’ve been together six years."

"Honestly, maybe we’re just not right for each other."

12. Don't expect your partner to fix your problems.

"People are not doctor’s appointments, OK? You shouldn’t go up to them and tell them everything that’s wrong with you and then they fix you and heal you and tend to your every scratch. No! People should be the lollipop you obtain after you’re done at the doctor’s appointment."
