The greatest factor that keeps us all going. One factor that plays the key role in how long a relationship will last.
The art of listening
Respecting each other’s differences
Love [not referring to our modern day version of love; but the true unconditional lurrrrve]
These seem to be vital factors that keep a relationship going for most same sex couples around me.
But what about Sex? And Passion? And Romance? Why do we end up taking a relationship for granted once we attain a certain level intimacy? We tend to assume that we’re regular partners. We forget to work on the rough edges and re-work on the smooth ones.
Is it amazing when two people express romance through small gifts, romantic night outs, sharing chocolate fudge on cold winter nights, pretty sunsets, earth shaking sex in the bedroom?
Or when romance is explored from the desire to create something new…something fun… beautiful and then surrender to it completely?
It would be immature of me to ignore the fundamental heterogeneity of human personality & consider that one thing works for all. It has to be an inquiry within each of us…right?
So here’s my bit….
All the building blocks are lying in the form of crayons in some drawer of my being. And I’m picking up red to celebrate her in my life and tell her that I wake up smiling because I’m so in love with her. And a bit of pink to convey … umm playfulness?
