are dating this guy for about 3 months now and every time
you two meet it leads to explosive fireworks. You are absolutely
charmed by his behaviour, style, smile, intelligence and
physique. You think of him every moment of the day. You
want to spend very moment of the day with him. At the beginning
of a "serious" relationship it's not uncommon
to neglect everybody-even your closest friends and family-in
favour of devoting all your time to your new love. In those
rare moments when you're not together, you're talking to
each other on the phone.
But as time passes by and your relationship becomes more
complex, you realize that you have to give in your best

You probably noticed them all along, but at first everything
about your love made you smile; you just brushed aside the
small faults by telling yourself that love would get you
through anything. As time passes, however, you notice that

will be no passion in your relationship. If you love your
partner there has to be passion and excitement in your

on three important things; sexual attraction between the
partners, respect for each other and common dreams. When
you are in love you are physically and sexually attracted
to your mate and respect plays a major role to keep the
relationship going strong. Also two people who love each
other share the same dreams and goals.

you get a chance to come closer to your partner. These
difficult periods are healthy and useful when they allow
each partner to assert his or her expectations and needs
regarding the relationship. These difficult moments therefore
give the two lovers the chance to better know each other
and better let themselves be known. If you pass in this
test then your relationship will never suffer
suffer when after the initial stages of passionate love couples
start to pull out of it because of certain differences between
them. When there is lack of understanding, patience and commitments
in a relationship it is bound to suffer the fate of break-up
and heart breaks. If relationships don't lasts just because
one partner is not ready to compromise then such a relationship
had a very weak foundation. Love is compromising, caring for
your partner and commitment. If these qualities are missing
