Jake Maddock has revealed the five things that will destroy your relationship in 2023
A no-nonsense dating coach has revealed the five things that could most destroy your relationship in 2023 — and how to avoid them.
Jake Maddock, who is known for his controversial views on dating, told FEMAIL that if your partner can’t access your phone, the relationship will implode.
He also believes that dissing their best friend is guaranteed to ruin things, along with offering sexual favors for mundane chores and cheating.
“We all get the idea that the hardest part is finding a relationship. Sure, that can be a struggle, but relationships have to be nurtured or they die,” he said.
“A strong 10/10 relationship should be everyone’s resolution every day of every year.”
He said knowing the top relationship killers puts you one step ahead of everyone — and more likely to have a relationship that thrives.
Don’t give your partner access to your phone
“Yes, it’s your phone and you don’t have to give it to your partner for daily checkups, but trust is the foundation of any relationship,” Jake said.
“If you don’t want your partner to know your phone’s password, the message is that you’re using your phone for things you don’t want them to know.”
He said it’s important to be open in a relationship because if you don’t, people get suspicious, leading to breakups.
Being disrespectful to their best friend
“If you don’t like your partner’s best friend, suck it up.” Don’t be rude to them in person, don’t be spiteful behind their backs,’ he said.
“Your partner’s friendship with his friend is important to him. Trying to come between a partner and their best friend will make them resent you.
“It’s a dangerous game that nobody ever wins.”
That applies to men and women, according to the coach.

Secrets kill relationships. It doesn’t matter what that secret is, big or small,’ he said.
“If there is no transparency in a relationship, she will die. There is no leeway that allows secrets in a 10/10 relationship. Ever.’
“Even if they are never revealed, they will influence your behavior and make you wary. And when you eventually confess, or are found out, the trust dies. No relationship can survive without trust holding it together.”
‘If you do the dishes, I’ll have sex with you. If you don’t go out with your friends tonight, I’ll have sex with you. Never, ever do this to the one you’re meant to love,” he warned.
‘Transactional lovemaking is a no go. It comes with a fiery charge of resentment in its backpack, and that resentment will always turn into a monster fire.”
“It’s a deal breaker. Don’t argue, maybe,’ Jake said.
“Never go back to someone who cheats on you. So if you are the cheater, you have ruined your relationship. Was it worth it?’
December and January are peak times for breakups, and they’re busy times for Jake, who helps couples bridge their differences.
