Stop your relationship rut

(BPT) – Feeling like you're in a relationship rut? You're not alone. Whether you're single or married, getting stuck in a routine may be normal, but that's no excuse to keep on down the same path. Take control of your love life and break out of your relationship habits. Relationship expert and author of "Cheat On Your Husband With Your Husband," Andrea Syrtash, shares three simple steps to help you identify your patterns, make small changes and ultimately decide if this is the right relationship for you.

* Identify the patterns.

If you want new results in love, you have to do things – and date – differently. Once you've identified your habits, it will be much easier to steer clear of any ruts.

The first step is to look at your pattern. If you don't know what your relationship pattern is, consider this: If your dating life were a movie – what would it be called? How would it begin and end? What character do you always play? You'll start to see some themes.

We all get into patterns in our relationships and often expect things to get better without changing our ways. It's like using the same search engine day in and day out and expecting better results. We do things because we've always done them; but as Einstein said, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Branch out and give Bing a try this Valentine's Day to see if it's your perfect match.
