makes the other partner jealous, disrespects, lies, starts fights all the time etc.
: When it comes to relationships, when we love our partners we tend to become needy and thus suffocate our significant other with our attention.
And if we do that, what happens is that they lose attraction for us, because they KNOW that they have us by the balls, so they are not challenged anymore, they are not excited to be in this relationship and thus end up taking us for granted. Thus we hate when we ask our partners to do something for us and they refuse to do it.
The reason is that while you cannot really manipulate the physical distance, you can manipulate the perception time.
From that point on, I looked differently at my relationship…
The idea is that as long as there’s no equal love, then you better let your partner go, or they let you go.
It’s true that you might suffer a lot, but it’s better to suffer a few months for losing them than suffer a few months while being with them and then a few more months for losing them.
And here I mean that if I want to have a healthy and successful relationship, there should be equality between her and me on three levels: feelings, attention and favors. We have to both love each other and do our best to keep love alive.
It’s very common that one partner loves less than the other and then behaves accordingly…
