It was love at first sight for you and your lover, and that first, blinding chemistry hasn't faded one whit. It is likely that you met under unusual circumstances -- perhaps by chance? -- and that edgy, unreliable aspect seems to permeate your relationship.
You may have some sort of circumstances holding you apart, or one of you may even be keeping your relationship secret for some reason. Whatever the unfavorable circumstances are, they seemingly add more spice to an already intense connection. When you're together it seems like you could spend an eternity drowsing in each other's arms, looking into each other's eyes. But when you are apart -- more the rule than the exception, unfortunately -- you are plunged into despair.If this relationship is to endure, it must be brought into the here and now. Stop ducking around corners and hiding at home. Let your love be known. Meet each other's friends. Introduce your families. These notes of reality may intrude upon your idyll, but they're essential if you are to wrestle this relationship to the ground. Hiding your feelings and pretending it's the two of you against the world is so teenage -- act like adults instead.
