You have so much to teach each other, so much to bring to one another's lives! This is a very important relationship for your lover, especially, one in which they make their way further down their life path than they might have if you two had never met. You have something in your past, your body of knowledge or experience, that is important to your partner -- something that helps them figure out who they are on a deep level.
Perhaps you've traveled someplace where your partner deeply wants to go, or your career is in an area that they want to explore. Somehow, you have a lot to teach this person. Your connection feels both new and familiar at the same time -- as if you were destined to find each other and share this deep connection! In fact, that may be true in the sense that you support this person so completely as they progress in their own life. This bond is one that lends itself to long-term relationships; expect your rhythms to get even more comfortable and natural over time. This relationship takes on a teacher-student cast, but in a good way -- you serve as home base for your lover's wanderings, and support them in a way that is natural and vital to both of you.
