Getting into a relationship is easy for some people. Staying in a relationship is an entirely different situation. In fact, the easier it is for someone to find a lover, the less likely they are to keep them. This is because the first time something goes sideways, they know they can get back out and reel in another.
People aren’t fish though. Eventually most serial monogamists start to wonder if they might be able to stick with someone. Would this be something to try?
If you do stay with a person, eventually you’re going to have a conflict. Further, the conflict might be BIG. Think about the transits we all endure. Not just the bad ones, but the ones where we become inflated and such. If you’re going to sustain a relationship – any relationship – you’re going to have be patient to some degree. You have to have the maturity to give someone space to work out their problems, which may be real and bad or even really bad.
I think people tend to think the really bad problem can’t happen to them. Like they’re all together and stuff…which is myth, really.
