Both of you are such warm and loving people -- so why is there a distance between you? As hard as you've tried, you haven't been able to get close and comfy with your lover. You admire your sweetie's wide-open mind and earthy sense of humor, while in return you are admired for your easy way with people and your vast capacity to love.
Yet somehow things don't hang together. You still get nervous around your sweetie. Conversation doesn't flow. You tend to show each other your social smiles rather than melding together easily. Time and attention will melt the frost between you, should both of you care enough to weather your difficulties. You share many things in common, including a passion for the arts and a desire to improve yourselves. If you can learn to travel together down life's path, you will bring out the best in each other and go further than either of you can alone. And it can be done -- two people with such generous spirits should certainly be able to find it in themselves to bend enough to accommodate the needs and desires of each other.
