Early dating serious conversations
There are plenty of married and divorced people who wish they had asked the tough questions before saying “I do.” …
It is no secret that love relationships change over time..how does this effect the topics couples need to be talking about?
It’s knowing that your mate has compatible views and opinions on some of the most important issues in your life.There are two type of romance: selfish romance (pursuing a romance for purely self serving reasons such as getting gifts, sexual favors, or trying to impress someone else) and selfless romance (romantic acts for the enjoyment and pleasure of your partner). This is often where an emotional relationship turns into a physical relationship. From here the couple must decide which path to take.The relationship will either burn itself out or will move onto the next stage.- a close relationship with another person of the deepest nature.I would like to hear your perspective on reconciling the tenets of deeper dating (openness and establishing intimacy as a point of departure, rather than as the end point of a waiting game) with the seeming infinite patience required to not pursue men, not discuss relationship status/marriage, and not push a desire for emotional connection on men while in a relationship as not to scare them away.
It seems these perspectives are mutually exclusive. Is it possible to start from a place of deep connection with someone, discuss your true desires for your romantic life (including marriage, children), and not scare them away?
During each stage, positive factors sway partners toward maintaining and strengthening their relationship while the negative factors at any stage contribute to its deterioration.
