It was love at first sight for you -- but unfortunately, you didn't progress much beyond those first swoony strains of love. Did you really know the one who claimed your heart? Oh, you had ideas, all right, and hopes, and fantasies.
What you didn't have was a firm grasp on reality. Your love relationship was all heated words and sweet dreams, but you never had the conversations that mattered: Where were you going together? What did you want from this relationship? How did you really feel about each other? You needed to start asking your lover these types of questions before you got in any deeper, because you were in the driver's seat and you didn't even know where you're going. There was a lot of hard work in front of you before you got where you wanted to go. First and foremost, you had to look at your relationship with your intellect, not your emotions. Did you grab yourself a sweetie who was good for you, who wanted the same things, who was dependable and loving? If so, you should have hung on and prepared to go deeper. If not, it was good to let go. Carefully review your class notes from this relationship before you embark on another.
