According to Bustle, everyone is usually on their best behavior in the beginning of a relationship. Whatever red flags or differences appear early on, remember they will only get worse.

California-based relationship expert Dr. Alisa Ruby Bash, PsyD, LMFT tells Bustle.

“Whatever behaviors might be an issue for you, try to imagine them heightened down the line, and ask if you can live with that.”

You can give your new partner the benefit of the doubt, and take some time to work on things.

“Perhaps they can control the negative behavior,” . “But, in cases where … there are some incompatibilities from the beginning, it’s probably best to fold and move on, because that is not going to get better.”

 

 

Here are some issues that’ll only get worse with time.

 

1. A Lack Of Sexual Chemistry

If you two aren’t the most sexually compatible, you can definitely work on it by communicating and experimenting. But do know this issue doesn’t always work itself out.

“The beginning of a relationship, when a couple is in the honeymoon stage, is the time when fireworks should be going off every time they are together,”.

“If that chemistry is not there from the beginning, it usually will only go downhill from there.”

 

2. Having Nothing In Common

While you two don’t have to be twins, it’s not a good idea to force a relationship with someone who’s your total opposite.

“If there is just no common ground, it will likely lead to the couple eventually having separate lives,”.

If you’re an extrovert and they’re an introvert, for example, or if you like to hike and they won’t even step outside, such differences can get more and more frustrating with time.

4. Trust Issues

5. Issues From The Past

Any fights about family members or ex-partners will likely only get more heated, so nip those in the bud ASAP.

If you notice early on that you feel that you are not on the same page when dealing with things from the past, you need to find early on if you can make an agreement.

What’s OK to talk about and what isn’t? And how do you plan to deal with this issue the next time it comes up?
