Let's start with the bad news, shall we? Ultimately, you may want more from this relationship than your lover does. You're so very attracted, it's true; your lover is possessed of an original point of view, and a stylish way of doing things that impresses you.
You're charmed, dazzled, turned on your head. So that's led you to ignore some of the warning signs you should have been heeding. Ask yourself some difficult questions. When the subject of permanence comes up, does your sweetie offer up plans of growing old with you in some rocker somewhere? Or does a strange silence suddenly fall? Better to have such conversations sooner rather than later, you know, when you're laying your heart on the line. If you want this thing to work, you simply have to scale back your expectations. C'mon, rustle up a little of that confidence that's always been yours to command. Don't expect your lover to be the cuddle-by-the-fire type. Instead, revel in a connection that's less constant, but more passionate. After all, who needs to snooze on a sofa when you can have long, hot sleepless nights instead?
