is it actually fundamentally human of us to crave romantic partnership? or is it a derivative of societal norms and upbringing?
Of course I'll hurt you. Of course you'll hurt me. Of course we'll hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.
How to Create a Winning Relationship
Don’t rush things. Take the time to really get to know each other.
Focus on positivity rather than negativity. Getting angry quickly or being harsh and critical will undermine and ruin even strong relationships. In contrast, being kind and gentle will help develop love.
Appreciate the little things the other person does. Don’t overlook their efforts; don’t just expect their help.
Enjoy the ways you’re different – and not clones of one another. It makes things interesting (and creates healthy space).
Don’t get into a rut so that you’re bored when you’re together. Keeping doing something different, or keep trying something new.
Learn how to be listener, someone who’s understanding, and helps their partner open up and share what’s bothering them.
Be loyal and committed, so trust can be established - that helps you both feel safe, and it will grow a strong, deep love.
