You and your partner had a lot of fun together. Both intelligent, expansive, and cheerful, you had many interests in common, and that was a good thing. Together you were a warm, dynamic couple that other people wanted to be around, just so they could bask on your glow.
However, what outsiders didn't see was the somewhat hollow middle beneath your gleaming exterior. You were so busy having fun together, so immersed in enjoying yourselves, that you didn't bother to dig deep. Did you ever even discuss what each of you wanted from the relationship? What direction you hoped to go in, and when? Did you think about potential conflicts in the way you dealt with money, family, faith?You and your sweetie were well placed to move ahead into a fulfilling and lasting relationship. But in order to get there, you were going to have to do some work. Talk about what you wanted, and listen to what your lover was looking for. The key was not to ignore what you heard in order to gloss over any potential conflicts; instead, you needed to seek compromises. The longevity you sought could have been yours if you were willing to bend just a little. Keeping this in mind will help your next relationship.
