Solutions For Relationship Problems  -  -  With Yourself

Maybe you're recovering from a breakup. Maybe you're considering trying your hand at online dating. Maybe you've been scouring the Internet for solutions to your relationship problems. Well, consider this: Maybe it's been hard for you to have successful relationships with others because you don't have a successful relationship with yourself.

"This above all: to thine own self be true," is how William Shakespeare put it. But how can you be true to yourself if you don't truly KNOW yourself? And if you don't truly know yourself, how can you be true to someone else? Some couples relationship counseling might be in order - even if you are not part of a couple any longer!

You can get a list of one thousand questions about love from veteran relationship counselor Micheal Webb. They're questions that committed, engaged, and married couples should all ask each other to open communication and enhance the relationship. They cover the subjects you'd expect, such as financial and career goals; family and child rearing; religious and moral beliefs. But Webb's questions also delve into areas where couples may find themselves to be quite surprised by each other's answers and reactions:

  • Do you like to travel on the spur of the moment?
  • What one skill do you wish you had learned but haven't yet, such playing the piano or learning a foreign language?
  • If you could live one year of your life all over again without changing a thing, what year would you choose?
  • On which topics do you feel qualified at giving advice?
  • What emotion do you have the most difficulty expressing?

But how can answering questions meant for couples help if you're a single? Webb asks the types of questions that online dating sites do in order to define your personality and determine your compatibility. So why not ask yourself those questions first? If you take the time to honestly figure out the answers, you'll not only end up feeling more secure and confident about who you are, you'll have a better idea of what you really want from a partner -- and what you really need from a relationship.

Think about how both you and your ideal partner would answer the questions. Don't try to answer them all in one sitting - two or three a day is enough. Writing down your answers will help you get in closer touch with your feelings, too.

Hopefully, asking yourself the right questions about love can become the key to solutions to your relationship problems.
