I’m honestly not entirely sure what you’re asking.
It sort of feels like you’re wanting generic advice thrown at you without putting in the effort or time to really spend educating yourself. A lot of this needs to be directed to your potential future partner, and a lot of this is common sense about healthy relationships between adults. The regression honestly has very, very little to do with the relationship if you simply treat the other person as your romantic interest and set a goal to build and bond with them. Learn who this individual is as an individual rather than a generic label. They’re not a dog breed. They’re a complex, individual human being.
Being a Little is a personality trait. Having a relationship with a Little is like having a romantic relationship with any other individual except that this particular person’s interests and displays of affection may
be more childlike or childish at times
. Let’s be honest though, interests as adults can vary wildly, and a handful of quirks comes with each of us, regardless if we’re regressors or not.
A Little may
benefit from a partner who expresses their romantic love through parental displays, such as heavy encouragement or providing extensive advice to guide the person into healthy choices, structures, and habits to develop. Again though, each of us as individuals benefit from different qualities of our partners. A Little doesn’t need a Caregiver to be Little so, logically, they could very happily partner with someone who is also a Little or someone who doesn’t identify within this community at all.
The relationship looks like any other relationship between adults, where each person has their own interests and the couple works together to find interests they not only share with one another but also seeing their partner enjoy. It looks like a lot of hard work and dedication to find the fairness that leads to long, happy, and psychologically healthy relationships. It looks like a relationship. Relationships can bring a lot of joy but they’re not always easy so keep in mind that communication, patience, and mindfulness are all absolutely necessary.
You can learn more about regression by taking in the information we have readily available about Littles:
Educating yourself thoroughly will take time and effort. One post isn’t going to do it, and generic articles aren’t going to ever give you a handbook on your partner or building a good relationship with that specific person.
You can also learn more by reading through the forum to gather generic information about common interests, for example; however, your best course of action is to have frequent, lengthy discussions with your prospective partner to not only build a bond apart from acknowledging their regression but also to develop an understanding of their interests and desires both within as well as outside of the relationship. Nobody knows that person better than themself. Nobody is going to be able to describe what makes that person happy in a relationship but exactly that person.
