From Reality Tv To Dating Life: Even though many would argue that as a reality series is always scripted, it's hard to differentiate between the contestants and whether their connection was real or not. It might not be the ideal way to attain some relationship advice or dating guidance but here’s a top four list of relationship lessons that viewers can learn from The Bachelorette:
The hunt for genuine love is very rare especially in this time and age. Even after we have all the technologies necessary to make communication easier, it feels harder to find the right partner. One thing we learn from the contestants leaving their jobs and families committed to being a power couple is that in our real life as couples we should often spend time with our significant other without distractions or cell phones. This idea of decluttering and taking a break from work, stress, and responsibilities after a month or two should be the norm for couples to grow as individuals and as together. Couple vacations should be a trend and more communities should encourage it.
Research has proven that lack of genuine connections in our life can lead to depression and loneliness. The show is a great depiction of human nature and how it craves deep meaningful connections. Throughout this series we saw people experimenting being in relationships or fighting for their love, being strong and present in the moment.
Honest and open communication is very essential for any relationship to flourish, making time for each other going on dates having meaningful conversations without hesitation. Scheduling dates every once in a while and discussing career, life, goals, children and your life ahead. No one needs a private island or a helicopter for a great date. Try to find happiness in small things and appreciate the little things in life like hugging each other or giving a kiss on your partner’s cheek before going to work. These little conscious efforts mean a lot in the long run.
Being open minded forgiving each other's mistakes and starting fresh everyday seeing it as a new beginning is essential for a long lasting commitment. It’s also okay to have deal breakers which is why you should be extra careful when choosing a romantic partner. If your morals and values don't align with someone don't try to change them, rather than look for people with similar ideologies as yours. To avoid conflicts it is better you have someone that thinks the same as you. Before discussing anything, the future, finances, kids all the important talk should be done. Jumping into conclusions and assuming the worst about your partner are also one of the things that damages genuine authentic connection. Keep an open mind and listen to your partner if they are expressing their dislike for something or they want to discuss something important, always provide a comfortable safe space to your partner so that they can express themselves.
