Looks are probably what initially attracted you to your new mate, but there’s more to a relationship than dating eye candy.

Be honest, you’d be bored going out with a supermodel if they didn’t make you laugh or were really boring!

Your guy wants sex to be great for the both of you, and it's very helpful to talk about things (what works for you, what doesn't).

Take uncertainty out of the equation: make one day or evening a week a sure thing, just for the two of you—no friends, co-workers, or roommates allowed. Okay, chances are you are both thinking it: could this person be The One? It’s better to concentrate on today and avoid too much talk about tomorrow. Or perhaps they think they only get twenty questions, so they’d better use them wisely.

It's important for them to know that those relationships can and do exist with the opposite sex.If you suddenly realize you haven’t been to yoga class in four weeks, your friends think you were abducted by aliens, and you can’t get in the door of your house for the pile of unopened mail, the relationship probably needs a breather—so it can live a long and healthy life. The electric sizzle between you practically melts the furniture in the coffee shop.
