making it last?


I think the fading of the romantic side may be predictable, unless a couple makes a conscience effort to avoid that outcome. Over time two people become comfortable with each other, even complacent. As the excitement of a new relationship dwindles and more of the other person’s foibles are revealed, people can lose interest in each other. I believe there is a difference between mystery and romance. Mystery may be part of what gets someone’s attention initially. It is romance and taking the time to make them a priority, which determines whether or not you keep their attention in the long run.
Growing up, I remember my parents set aside one night each week for each other. As far as I know they still do this. I think it is that continuously taking tame to focus on the other person that determines if a relation ship will last. Focusing on the other person, making them a priority in your life, is easy when a relationship is new and exiting. You have to decide whether or not you will stay focused on them in the long run. Hopefully, they will decide that you are till important to them and take the time to show you that you are important to them.
