What a powerful, emotional bond you have. Sometimes it might even scare you how deeply you're connected and how intensely you feel for each other, and in fact, some very strange, strong and perhaps unwelcome feelings come up for you both in this relationship. How you deal with them is up to you, but taking the most positive route could be a matter of will, not chance.
Your sexual connection with this person is powerfully emotional and overwhelming; it could hold such a strong sway over you that you're irrationally jealous and possessive of them, even if you don't normally tend toward these feelings. You want to possess your lover, and you don't want them to pay attention to anyone but you. But that's not very fair, is it? After all, you both have plenty of relationships in your lives that are important to you -- ones that exist outside the romance you two share, and that came along before you two ever met. Why should you give those up or deny their importance just because you're in this relationship? Having more than one romantic affair at once is one thing that's definitely best avoided, but learning to allow your lover the space to maintain their friendships and other important relationships is an important lesson for both of you through the course of this affair.
