What mistakes have you made (or have observed in others) when getting into a relationship? I can think of two right now and it's what I remind my friends who I see might be going the same path of failure: 1. Being in love with "falling in love" not necessarily with the person. It's when you become seriously involved in a relationship because you want to be in a relationship, instead of giving much thought to whether the person you are with is really right for you. 2. Making premature compromises. When you change or edit your values, behaviors, and habits in hopes that you and your partner will appear to get along more harmoniously or look "compatible". At first it looks "sweet" (aw, look how she has changed for love's sake), but at one point you may realise that you have lost yourself, you've just created someone your partner will like....someone who isn't really you.
