If you start to find out that you and your partner have the potential to be something really serious, then you need to have the gall to bring these things up during conversations.
Again, you don’t have to be completely open especially when it’s still the early stages of your relationship. You are still entitled to your sense of privacy in your romance. But gradually, you are going to have to bring your walls down if you want the relationship to flourish.
And there is substantial difficulty in having to time the appropriate moments of bringing these topics up. But that doesn’t make them any less necessary. You have to understand that the more open you become to one another, the better overall it will be for your relationship.
Bringing up supposedly taboo topics during conversations in an early relationship will also give you a good idea as to how serious your partner really is. The more receptive they will be of these conversational advances, then the better chances that they are actually willing to stay together with you for long stretches. They wouldn’t want to be having these conversations with you if they didn’t think that you had a shot at actually being something better.
1. Your family life.
While you don’t necessarily have to go into detail about what all of your family members are like, you need to give your partner a good glimpse into what your life was like growing up with your family.
This is important because it gives them a valuable perspective into how you were raised.
2. Your future goals and dreams.
Even early on in your relationship, you have to be willing to discuss your dreams and goals. You need to know if your visions of the future are actually compatible.
And the only way to do that is if the both of you open up about what your dreams are.
3. Your individual sexual preferences.
If you know that sex is on the table for your relationship, then you need to open up to one another about it. You really need to be able to talk about your sexual preferences and tendencies in an effort to be open to one another. It’s also the only way for you to really know how to please each other in bed.
4. Your personal present or past addictions.
If you have an addiction (or if you have had any addictions in the past), you need to be able to bring these up to your partner. You don’t want to keep them in the dark with any demons that you might be dealing with on your own.
