Dating and Relationship Advice – 7 Habits That Can Destroy a Loving Relationship

There are many habits that can ruin a couple’s loving relationship, doesn’t matter if you are single or married.

7 habits that can destroy a loving relationship

These bad habits include physical and emotional cheating, poor communication, addictions and many others. Oftentimes, these destructive things don’t look like bad habits at first but if they aren’t handled carefully, it could result into bigger problems that would eventually breakup a relationship.

Inspired by Huffington Post, here are 7 habits that can destroy a loving relationship:

1. Having no common courtesy: You aren’t single any longer, learning to include your partner in your plans is simple courtesy. It shows that you have a lot of respect for them, if the plans do not go as expected, communicate to your partner why such a thing happened rather than having a fight about it. You become more trustworthy to your partner and create a stronger bond when you have common courtesy.

2. Going back to the past: The past is the past which is why it should be left where it is. Single and married couples often hurt their relationship when they bring up the past, especially during an argument. Even if a past issue needs to be thrashed out, it’s advisable to bring it up with care and make sure your partner understands why you are doing so.

3. Forgetting to say ‘thank you’: As much as saying thank you may not mean a thing to you immediately, it’ll go a long way in your relationship if you use it often. It’s important to express gratitude your partner every time, doesn’t matter if they are just carrying out the simplest of duties.

4. Talking to each other through texts: Having a heart to heart conversation via texts is awful for you. As much as talking to each other through texts could be okay in some instances, it could cause huge problems in communication if all you do is text each other.

5. Continuous distraction: Single and married couples let distracting devices such as phones, tabs, computers get in between their relationships. People have let social media dictate how they treat their partners too. These continuous distractions slowly kills the emotional connection you have with your partner

6. Speaking ill of your partner: Saying hurtful things about your partner to someone else especially in public places is simply horrible. No single or married relationship is perfect and some things are bound to drive you crazy, but speaking ill of your partner to someone else is just downright petty.

7. Focusing on the negatives: Everyone has a flaw, so not looking past your partner’s shortcomings could destroy your relationship. Love can’t hold this together. For singles and married people, it’s advisable to treat your partner the same way you’ll treat your best friend or yourself.

Celebrity Sightings: Farrah Fawcett – 1947 to 2009 – Life Uncovered – Part 4

Badmouthing Her Besties

When it came to her close friends and former co-stars Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, Fawcett never had a bad word to say about them and reacted well when people would try to pry into any drama that occurred between them while filming. During an interview with controversial radio host Howard Stern, he kept trying to get Fawcett to badmouth Jackson and Smith but she refused, explaining that there was nothing but love between them. Farrah had their backs!

The Farrah-Flip

You know that a star has reached new levels of fame when a haircut is named after them! Fawcett’s signature blonde and feathered hairstyle actually has its own name! If you want to get your hair cut like Farrah’s, all you have to do is say that you want the “Farrah-do” or the “Farrah-flip.” Using these magic words in any salon should get you a cut and or color to match that of the late movie star’s.

The Dating Game

Before Fawcett was famous, she was a contestant on The Dating Game! It was a game show where a woman was given a choice of three single men. She could talk to them, but she could not see them until the end! You can bet that these men were dancing in their seats and trying to make an excellent impression to win their ways into the heart of the blond haired-blue-eyed beauty. Do you really blame them?

Baby Naming

When it comes to picking a name for your baby, especially when it’s a girl, most parents want to choose a name that people will associate with a beauty icon or famous actress. Right after Charlie’s Angels made its big debut, Farrah quickly became one of the most popular baby names in the United States! But you have to admit, Farah is a pretty catchy name. It can also be seen as an alternative to the popular name Sarah.

Contacting The Departed

Just when we thought that Fawcett was close with her former co-stars, her relationship with Tori Spelling proved to be even closer, but in an interesting way. Farrah used to be neighbors with Tori Spelling, and the two had developed such a connection that Spelling was able to contact her even after she left this world. Spelling said that she visited a psychic who helped her talk to Farrah after she had passed away. We wonder what they chatted about.

Cover Girl

Farrah rose to stardom rather quickly, and it was only a matter of time before she was literally everywhere. That means billboards, shampoo bottles, and even a Super Bowl commercial, but some of her favorite work was modeling for magazines. Fawcett has appeared in noteworthy magazines such as Bazaar, Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Time, but she stated that being in Playboy was the highlight of her life. We’re sure that her spread in the magazine was also a highlight of other people’s lives as well.

Farrah Went Plastic

It’s every girl’s dream to enter the world of plastic becoming a Barbie doll, literally! After years of fame on both the big and small screens, Fawcett finally joined the ranks of other stars who have had one of the classic dolls modeled after them. The iconic image of Farrah in a red swimsuit was ultimately recreated in a limited edition Barbie doll complete with a gold chain and her signature girl-next-door golden locks. The likeness is uncanny!

Midnight Plane To Houston

Fawcett and her former husband Lee Majors served as the inspiration for the song Midnight Train to Georgia. Singer/songwriter Jim Weatherly, who was a friend of Majors, phoned him, but the call was answered by Fawcett. As Weatherly and Fawcett chatted, she told him she was going to visit her mother and was taking “the midnight plane to Houston.” Although Majors and Fawcett were both successful at that time, Weatherly used them as characters in his song.

Reclaiming Her Fame

Farrah may have been America’s favorite calendar girl when she was on Charlie’s Angels, but her film career was not as successful and eventually began to decline after she starred in Sunburn, Somebody Killed Her Husband, and Saturn 3. Farrah made a remarkable comeback after finding her niche in made-for-TV movies, specifically those based on real stories, and was awarded much praise for her role in the 1984 television movie, The Burning Bed, which tells an emotional tale of domestic abuse.

The Best-Selling Poster In History

You know the picture of Farrah that everybody knows? The one with the famous one-piece red bathing suit? Well, that’s the best-selling poster in history! The photo which was spontaneously taken resulted in the 1976 poster that wound up plastered on millions of bedroom walls. The photographer used a blanket from Mexico that served as the seat cover for his beat-up 1937 Chevy pickup with colors that matched the suit. Original copies of the poster now run anywhere from $299.99 to $399.99 on Amazon.

(I own one in mint condition still rolled in its plastic tube!)

Isn’t it weird she died from cancer?
