12 Mistakes You’ll Make In Your First Relationship

Your first serious relationship is memorable for many reasons. This is your first boyfriend or girlfriend we’re talking about here – obviously you’re always going to remember this person just because of that.

But it’s also memorable because it’s a huge learning experience. Your first relationship is the time when you figure out how to deal with all of those crazy emotional relationship-y things. Making mistakes is inevitable because, um, you’ve never done this before! It can take a really long time to figure out exactly how you should act when you’re dating someone. And making these mistakes isn’t even a bad thing as long as you learn from them for the future.

I made a ton of mistakes in my first relationship that helped me realize what I really wanted out of a boyfriend and helped me figure out how I should act as a girlfriend. In fact, I made every single mistake on this list. Check out the 12 mistakes you’ll make in your first relationship – and don’t be ashamed!

Did you make these mistakes in your first relationship? Have you ever dated anyone before? Do you think I’m right or wrong? What did I miss? Tell me in the comments!

    I just ended my very first relationship. It was so sad and I am still really sad about it because the only real reason why it ended in the first place is because he is moving. I think it is funny though because I did some of these things like leaving my friends to hang out with him lol I don’t think they were too happy about that. I just miss him and want to still be with him and he still wants to be with me too 🙁 this is why I stayed away from boys all this time lol

    Hi, i am in a really big trouble…
    So, we are chatting on a phone, for a month… we said good night, sweet dreams and hearts when we went to sleep and other cool stuff, and before two weeks i said her that I LOVE HER… At the next day she started to react shy… She isn’t using smileys hardly ever… She isn’t even saying good night…but bye… I am really annoyed.. Can you help me???? Can you say me, how can i correct it?

    I’m so scared. I’ve just got done with homecoming from last night and he already wants to be bf and gf. Yes. I like him but i feel like it’s moving REALLY FAST. I’m just nervous that I won be a good girlfriend. Plus he keeps taking my books and I hate it! It’s like I can carry this tiny little Spanish book. It’s not like I can’t carry a 1 pound book if that.

    wow. I had my first relationship in my 30s and never did one of these things. Maybe just because I was older?

    • j_Mo

    I had just been dumped by my first boyfriend I still can’t get over it worst of all all my “friends” are only saying ohhh I told you so… you know a little sympathy doesn’t hurt :/

  • chrissi

    definitely feel like i can check my friend off for most of these… among some other articles. I turned to We and all I hear is “BF BF BF” and how they are going to get married (16 btw)
    complete 360 from the girl i met and became best friends with.

    I had my first boyfriend a couple months ago and I didn’t do any f these. I actually ended up not really like him that much. luckily he wasn’t feeling it either so he called it off and saved me the trouble of not knowing how to break up with him.

    • chrissi

      lucky you… mine ended up crying and got angry (understandable though of course)
      however we were only dating for a couple months, said the L word too soon (one of the mistakes here) and definitely felt like he wanted us together for a long time, whereas I couldn’t see us getting past the summer…

      I just a teenager so you could somewhat say that my advice is not the good but i am going to share it anyway. You had i lucky with not having to deal with breaking up the relationship. And i found this out the hard way never i me ever break up with a note when you are going to be stuck in the same room for an hour after giving them the note that you are beaking up with especailly when they are really into the relationship.

    Trust me number one happens way after the first relationship and then they make up some stupid excuse like I’m sorting out my life (more like I’m too busy having sex with my boyfriend) smh I ditched my ex-bff for that.
