Somehow, your relationship leads to an imbalance in the ways that you view each other. Your lover starts to view you as an authority figure or an expert on how to approach life in general, and that misperception leads to an unhealthy dependence on your ideas. The ways that they think and communicate are limited if they place undue importance on your intellect.
Though it's wonderful to look up to each other and respect each other for your minds, that can go overboard. You must both remember that you're equals, and that each of you has valuable insights, ideas and goals to bring to the relationship. Your fears and needs for security are highlighted in this relationship; it may be that your partner's idolizing is based on an unconscious desire not to lose you -- if they build you up, surely you'll want to stick around for more adulation, right? Except that just creates an imbalance in the way you two communicate and get along. You might start to criticize and even control and look down on them, trying too hard to influence their thinking by pointing out all the weaknesses in their ideas. This, in turn, could lead to arguments and hurt feelings. Their self-confidence could wither under this kind of influence. Self-expression and honesty, with yourself and each other, are of utmost importance, and they could be very difficult to achieve in this relationship.
