Getting into a new relationship is a tricky business. I think we all can agree to that. You are treading in unfamiliar grounds and you really don’t want to do anything to fuck this up. So what do you do? I say you water it! Yes. To me, any new relationship is like a sapling. And you my friend are the gardener. In order to grow a healthy relationship, you must keep the “watering can” filled and ready. Let’s learn few more gardening tips, shall we?
Pull Out The Weeds Of Confusion And Miscommunication

Most of the new relationships end way before they begin because of no or sloppy communication. No communication causes confusion and confusion makes everything complex. It is a goddamned sapling. What on Earth could be so complex about it? Talk! Talk about everything and leave no room for weeds to grow. And if at all a weed of confusion creeps into your pot, pull it out. There is absolutely no room for that here. You are growing a happy, soulful, and healthy sapling here. Okay? Okay.
Don’t Water Too Much – Let It Grow

Any good gardener knows this for a fact that a sapling takes its own time to develop. You cannot just force a flower out of it. You must be patient and give it time. Do not rush a relationship and scare your partner away. A healthy relationship can be built by slowly and gradually creating the important characteristics of any relationship like understanding, trust, respect, compatibility, and so on. Watering your sapling too much will obviously kill it. Don’t do that!
Decorate The Pot

In any new relationship, creativity is the key. Do not just do what everyone else is doing. Create your own unique garden, the one that others can be envious of. Make your own, special memories. Growing a sapling is something everyone else is doing. How is your flower pot different? Decorate it. Flaunt it! Make it something special. You don’t want to be an ordinary gardener who ended up in an ordinary garden. Do you?
And always remember, you’ll reap what you have sown. So choose wisely and do not waste your water on a dried, dead plant. Move on and grow a new one.
