I wrote this, planning on making a full novel out of it, but I'm not sure that it will get finished. I liked these too much not to share them, however, so I decided that I didn't need a story to post it up here. I made each one of up myself, so don't go stealing them. I read a lot of fictionpress romance and this is what I got out of it. Enjoy!
Know What You Want
Make a list of things you want in a partner. Think of personality, hobbies, even appearance. If you look hard enough, you can get what you want. Too many times has a girl missed her chance because she didn't know what she was looking for.
Keep Your Options Open
Don't keep looking for every little detail; you might have to let something go for something else. Don't throw someone away because they have brown eyes instead of green. Let's face it, there's no such thing as a perfect guy.
Follow Your Instincts
Instincts are always right. They're a part of you so they know what you need. It may not feel right, but in the long run, your instincts will never let you down.
Nobody likes to be forgotten so pay attention to your partner. Learn his likes, dislikes, what makes him smile, etc. Always remember his birthday or anything else that means something to him. He will love to know that you think of him once in a while.
Opposites Do Not Attract
If you and your partner are opposites, fights will break out. You have to agree on a few things or your relationship will be miserable. Love is supposed to be good, not bad.
Understand Your Feelings
So many girls deny their feeling or mistake them for something else. Don't do that to yourself. Make sure you know what your feelings mean and don't ignore them. It might be too late to take them back.
Brothers Don't Know Anything
If you have an overprotective brother, ignore him. He will try to set rules and scare your man away, but don't let him. He may be trying to protect you, but he doesn't understand how you feel. Make yourself happy and tell him to deal with it.
Don't Play Games
No matter what they say, playing games is not going to get you a guy. They might give up or try harder, but when they finally get you, the chase will be over and they will most likely move on to someone else. Just be natural.
Kissing Isn't a Sin
You're not going to Hell because you touched lips with another person. Don't go any farther than this, however. Girls often fall for the lies a guy will tell to get into her pants. If you fall for these as well, you'll be left with a broken heart and body.
Learn From Other's Mistakes
Nobody likes to hear "I told you so." Just make sure you never repeat anything your best friend or siblings did to ruin their relationships. You'll just be repeating history.
Jealousy Ruins Relationships
Jealousy is called the green-eyed monster for a reason: it destroys. Don't let this monster destroy your future. Control your feelings and never accuse your partner of anything you aren't sure of.
Don't Let the Rumors Get to You
Somebody is going to say something about you or your partner and there's nothing you can do about it. Make sure there are no secrets in your relationship and don't jump to conclusions. There's always a story behind a story.
Liars Will Go to Hell
Never, ever lie to your partner. Things will spiral out of control no matter how small the lie was. Many relationships have failed because of a simple lie and you don't want that to happen. If he lies to you, make sure you get the whole story before doing anything rash. There's always a way to keep things under control.
Don't Over Do It
No one likes a needy person. If he doesn't call, don't worry. If he wants to hang out with his friends, let him. Do not get angry when he forgets your anniversary, he might be stressed or have something planned. His life doesn't revolve around you and it never will.
You've heard this a million times, but I'm going to tell you again: don't be someone you're not. You want your future husband to fall in love with you not someone else. Keep in mind that although some people may not appreciate you for who you are, someone out there will.
Happily Ever Afters Can Exist
But only you can make it happen. Don't deprive yourself of that right.
