Aladdin is one of the most popular Disney movies, and everyone loves Jasmine and Aladdin as a couple. While I don’t agree that Aladdin should have lied about anything in the first place, I do think there’s some pretty good lessons we can learn when it comes to relationships from him. If you want to be the best girlfriend ever, read on:
1. Don’t keep asking if your partner trusts you.
Trust is obviously imperative in any relationship, and it has to be earned. Whether your partner trusts you or not, you don’t want to keep asking them about it. If you keep having to ask, they might think there is a reason why they shouldn’t.
2. Have confidence in your relationship.
I know how easy it is to get insecure about your relationship. You might find yourself questioning your partner’s feelings or wondering if you actually mean something to them or not. This happens, especially if you have a big fight or haven’t been spending a lot of time together. Or you might have your own personal insecurities that are creeping into your relationship. Do your best not to let your insecurities affect your dating life.
3. Compliment your partner.
Everyone loves compliments because it makes people feel good! Give your partner compliments, but obviously make sure you mean them.
4. Don’t show off.
When you first start dating someone, you might want to impress them, but you don’t need to be over-the-top. You’re not going to be able to keep up a charade, and if you’re trying to impress your significant other all the time, it’s going to seem insincere.
5. Mind your jealousy.
When you’re in a committed relationship, no one should be flirting with other people! However, being jealous is a normal human emotion that everyone feels from time to time. Just make sure you don’t let it get the best of you and affect your relationship.
6. Don’t be someone you’re not.
Whether you’re trying to snag your crush or you’re already in a relationship, never ever pretend to be someone you’re not! It’s only going to end badly. Just be you!
Initiating a hookup should never fall on just one person all the time because that’s just not fair for anyone. Make a move if you’re feeling it!
8. Don’t freak out in fights.
One of the keys to successfully resolving an argument is to remain calm. You won’t get anywhere from yelling at each other so do your best to talk it out.
9. Don’t lose track of other things in your life.
When you’re in a relationship, it’s really easy to lose sight of the other things in your life. You want to spend all of your time with your boo! I get it, but you’ll regret that in the long run. Make sure you still make time for your friends, family, hobbies, and other things in your life.
10. Don’t stop having fun.
It’s also easy to get stuck in a relationship rut and routine. Don’t forget to still go on fun dates and do cool things with your partner to keep your relationship fresh and exciting!
