Are romantic relationships naturally work or has something gone wrong when it feels like work? We argue and sometimes can’t see eye to eye, but that’s just a part of a working relationship. Right? We have our ups and downs as the saying goes, but we love each other and that’s what really matters. Or is it?
Once, I dated someone for about a year, which for him was pretty long. That probably should have been a sign for me, but for the first time, I was head over heels in love. The attraction was there, we cared about each others feelings and lives, but we tended to argue. Personally, I found it to be a sign that we were willing to be ourselves and to be open. But the words that I remember him saying were, ” I know not every couple fights.” He said it like he was sure something was wrong. It struck me and made me wonder if that were true, could there be relationships out there that are simple, peaceful and just fun loving?
