There is a feeling of understanding and interest between you two, but you have to forcibly steer yourself away from playing armchair psychologist with your partner if you want the relationship to be mutually beneficial! For some reason, you're almost too interested in their past -- what their former relationships were like, why they didn't work out, what changes they've gone through since then and so on. You talk a lot together about your upbringings, your experiences with love and broken hearts and your theories on your own emotional makeup.
That was a great way to get to know each other, and it made you feel close to each other, as if you knew each other inside out. But it could, now, be impeding any forward movement in this person's life if you're too focused on their past. What happened in the past is undeniably important, but it's where you are now as individuals and where you're going in your lives that's the most important thing. If you pull them backwards too much, you can create an undue focus on what has already been and not enough emphasis will be placed on what's ahead. As a couple, you should be concerned with where you're going together, first and foremost. Shift your attention onto that plane and you'll stand a much better chance of being a favorable influence on each other.
