Let’s be real; it’s hard enough to maintain a happy and healthy relationship when all finances are in order, much less when they’re not. After all, it’s one of the top reasons behind breakups and divorce.
Maintaining a long distance love is not for the faint of heart. There’s the issue of trust to contend with, not to mention the feeling of stark loneliness when your lover is not physically by your side.
If you start dating someone who’s fresh out of a break-up, chances are they’re on a rebound, and you’re serving as a soft landing for their emotional downfall. Nobody wants to be a rebound, as the ball most likely won’t stay in your court for long.
When someone says, “I have high standards”, we often take that to mean they’re high maintenance, just looking for a trophy or shallow. Why is that? Maybe it’s the way these so-called standards are presented to us.
For some, to be single is to be free. Free of obligations and expectations, free to explore, experiment and experience life on your own terms, with your own agenda. To others, being single is like serving a prison sentence.
All relationships have their ups and downs, you’ll see the good and the bad…but how do you handle the ugly? How do you stay the course when the waters get choppy under your relation-ship? Should you drop down the anchor and ride out the storm, or just jump overboard and let that baby sink?
Sometimes when you’ve been single and looking for a long while, it can be a bit of a surprise when all of a sudden, a potential partner appears; full of passion and desire to start something with you, right now.
