Everyone wants a healthy and successful relationship. No one wants to experience the pain and
hurt of a relationship that ends in fighting, pain and eventual separation. Mature relationships are
what all of our hearts are looking for. We all want to love freely and be loved by others. We want to
be treated correctly, we want to be respected and cherished. Millions of relationships end in
separation every year, not because they just didn't work out but because there wasn't the proper
knowledge and education of what it takes for mature dating.
One of the first foundational attributes to a mature relationship is learning patience. Anything in life
that is worth a lot, costs a lot. Many times we want the end result of happiness and satisfaction
without taking the time to pay the price of sacrifice and effort. Every successful relationship starts
with patience. Patience allows your partner to be human and not feel guilty or less than. When
give the other person to mess up, mistreat you and not always be 100% selfless, you are sowing
patience so that when you mess things up, patience is what you'll receive from them.
One of the opposing attributes that has broken up many relationships is anger. Anger is the
opposite of learning the discipline of patience. We typically exert anger when we feel like we want
or deserve something and someone is standing in the way of us getting or attaining it. Most of the
time these feelings begin in a place of selfishness where anger rears its ugly head.
Mature dating relationships are able to bread peace in the midst of an argument or disagreement.
Peace comes from patience. Instead of retaliated right away, be patient and listen. Be willing to
take the brunt of something for your partner, be willing to let them be wrong without you feeling like
you have to defend yourself or correct them. You'll see the magic patience can have on a heated
argument. Someone has to be the better one or else the argument can turn into a fight and lead to
a lot of pain and regret. When you practice patience it's like you placing water on the fire.
With out the practice of patience your relationship can become a ware very fast. Anger will foster
more anger which fosters wrongful and hurtful words and actions that can have a long effect.
Patience breads peace, love and respect that will foster a healthy environment for the relationship
to mature and grow in true love.
Mature dating takes time and effort. It requires both parties to lay down their lives for the other
person. It requires room for fault and patience to hold your tongue. True love requires time and
willingness to be wrong at times. If you're looking for a mature dating relationship the place to
begin is with your own heart and actions. Patience isn't something that comes naturally to us, it
something that must be developed and put into practice. In the end you'll see how much peace
and love patience will produce.
