As I noted in the last post, romantic break-ups are the #1 leading cause for people breaking their leases on leased apartments. When this happens, everybody loses. The landlord obviously loses because the apartment will likely sit vacant for months while he tries to find new tenants.

However, the biggest losers are undoubtedly the couple who broke up and broke there lease. Not only can this negatively affect their credit scores, but it can also lead to depression, anxiety and loneliness as they struggle to go forward with their lives without the love and support of their former partners.

Luckily though, many of these break-ups can actually be avoided simple by working on your communication skills and tuning into the subtle signal’s that your partner is sending you to let you know about their emotional state. This subject of communicating through subtle signals was recently explored in a new ebook by relationship expert Jake Troy called “Love Signals”.

The main idea is that men and women communicate about emotions in very different ways. Often times, a man can be trying his hardest to express his love and adoration for his partner, yet for whatever reason she is unable to get the message. What happens next? You guessed it – she starts doubting his feelings and he becomes frustrated with her inability to understand and appreciate him. Before you know it they are packing their bags, breaking their lease and the relationship is over.

The trick, if you can call it that, is to get “in tune” with one another as quickly as possible, so that you both feel understood and appreciated. This can mean putting other things on the back burner temporarily so that you can focus on the relationship, and try to really pay attention to the signals your partner is sending you. One thing I have found extremely helpful is to focus less on the words that your partner says to you, and more on the real meaning behind the words, and the meaning of what is left unsaid.

Yes, it takes work, but nobody ever said that relationships were going to be easy. Luckily though, I think that you will find that putting the extra effort into reading your partners love signals can really pay off in the end, and I can guarantee that your landlord will appreciate you two staying together and honoring the terms of your lease!


Relationship break-ups are one of the main reasons that people break their leases. And, while most reasonable landlords will be understanding about this sort of thing, some won’t, and this can create a serious financial problem for those living paycheck to paycheck. In fact this is the very reason why some landlords are reluctant to rent to unmarried couples.

So, before you go out and rent an apartment with your girlfriend, think things through. Are you really headed for marriage, or is this just a temporary thing that could end at any time? My advice is only to move in with a woman if you think you will be with her long-term, or if you will be able to keep paying the rent on your apartment without her assistance.

Be honest with yourself. Is your relationship hitting a wall? Are you constantly bored with where you are right now in your relationship? Maybe it is about time to re-assess, either move on or stick with it.

Once you have figured that out, the next step is making a real internal commitment to the health of your relationship. If you are serious, I’d recommend studying up on the topic of how to keep your relationship thriving. Here are a few tips to get you started.

One of the key things is that you want to be sure to keep her desiring you sexually. If you let the passion fade she will start seeing you as a “male roommate” rather than as a boyfriend or lover, and that’s never a good thing. The key is to stimulate her emotions and keep her feeling sexually turned on and attracted to you.There are many ways to do this, one of the best resources I’ve found is something called The Desire System, which shows how to use new research on female desire that was conducted by an Asian Dr. named Dr. David to get women desiring you very passionately. You can watch a video about the desire system here.

The truth is that relationship plateau happens to everyone. Your situation isn’t any different from everyone else, but if you believe that you are stuck on a boring plateau in your relationship then you need to take action while there is still time.

One of the first things you should do is tell your loved one how you feel. It is better to work on your relationship together rather than doing it yourself. Helping each other will help you discover new things about yourself and your loved one.

It also helps to be vulnerable to show your loved one that you are human and also makes mistakes. A line of communication between you and your loved one will go a long way to revitalizing your relationship.

Try doing new things together. Rehash the usual movie and dinner dates and do something that you both have been planning to do for a long time. Go on a trip to Hawaii or Mexico, do something exciting like hiking, scuba diving, or skydiving. Doing a new activity or a new trip with your loved one helps both of you create new experiences that you both can share.


Looking for an apartment that fits one’s preference can be easy. But one has to have some sort of mental checklist as a guide before finally signing that lease contract. Before going over signing a deal, here are some pointers to ponder on.

The first thing one needs to give careful attention to is the contract of lease. One has to scour carefully what is in the contract. It has the following policies that is needed to be obeyed while living in the rented space, and to keep one protected from complaints and misunderstandings.

Immediately ask if there is a parking space available or a bike parking area if one has an automobile. One doesn’t want his or her vehicle parked along the streets because of the possibility of it being towed, hit, or stolen.

Also, check if the apartment allows pets. There are buildings and residential villages which are strict when it comes to the enforcement of their policy of keeping pets away from the building. So if one has a small pooch or kitty, consider a flat that allows them to live, roam around or walk along the area.

The next point to look out for is if all the electric outlets work. It is for the appliances one will use and other gadgets. Take a small nightlight, plug it in the power outlet and test if it lights up. If there are plugs that do not work, request for them to be fixed. If not, then label them if one is ready renting the place.

One should also check the utilities, appliances, and furniture if they work and if they are in good condition. Heaters, wifi, air conditioning, and tap are needed to be checked and tested before considering whether one will settle in a flat. Also, check the stove if there are signs of burning.

Check for pests or any signs of infestation inside cabinets, along the floor, on the carpet, or behind the refrigerator. Also examine the bathroom and kitchen if there are molds. Let the leaser contact a pest control agent before moving into the flat.
