You ever have one of those relationships where you totally forget who you are? Your life becomes consumed by being one half of a couple, and suddenly you as an individual don't exist anymore. There are certain things every woman in a relationship should consider doing to help maintain her independence and individuality, because even unintentionally, we lose sight of these things once we find our match. It's all too easy to fall into the trap of caring only about building the perfect relationship. I call it a "trap" because despite how positive it may sound, obsessing over making the perfect relationship will end in disaster: any life solely focused on a coupling, while sacrificing the health and happiness of the individual self, is doomed to fail on both levels.
Instead, we need to look at our relationships as comprised of three facets: you, your partner, and the two of you as a couple. If one of the first two facets isn't what it needs to be, the whole thing threatens to collapse. Therefore, it becomes imperative to take care of you. Here are seven things you can do to keep things healthy on your end and contribute to what could be a beautiful, blossoming relationship.
