Details

When a new relationships starts, especially a romantic one, there are expectations. Many of them seem obvious, some much more subtle, often unseen. Some of us are "old fashioned", some more "modern".
What do you expect from a partner? How flexible are you in accepting habits you are unfamiliar with? Is there a difference in what you expect (must do), want (might compromise), or don't care? How do you let them know what you expect? What should they expect from you? How open should we be about things we want or don't want? This goes all the way from treatment of each other, to table manners, cleanliness, spending habits, communication, willingness to change / compromise, who cooks, takes out the garbage, even sexual expectations. For ourselves, how much of the difficulty in adjusting is their actions vs. our attitudes? How much does our silence damage the relationship? Why are we silent?
