It takes very minute and menial things to slowly damage a relationship over time, things that aren't noticeable in the beginning and subtly affect even the strongest of relationships. Make sure you avoid these things, I've seen the strongest of people break apart because of these things. Let's begin.
1. Don't try to read their mind
When couples start trying to go into each other's heads is when things start going bad.
