Having an emotional connection is a really important part of your relationship and should be a very high priority on your checklist.

We all have a past and some great memories from our ex's but that doesn't mean that our new partner has to be reminded of it too. Perhaps he could just put them in a photo album and save the wall for loving photos of you as a couple.
Today I discuss this controversial issue that has many people questioning their dating and relationship communication skills. Please watch the video below and read this post to see what you can do to step up your texting and phone etiquette!
If you are worried about your date or your partner seeing what is lighting up your phone, then put it away. If you are in a committed relationship, nothing screams “ secrets” as much as this action does.
