Some people think that true love is not complete without total merging into the partner, without become the sole entity where they themselves don’t exist anymore. Such people even on the stage of dating experience complete dependency on their partner not wishing to exist outside him/her. Don’t be afraid of enriching your relationship by bringing into it new interests from outside the relationship. The more passions in life that you have and share, the richer your relationship will be. It is unrealistic to expect one person to meet all of your needs in life. At that, one should maintain self-respect and self-esteem. It's easier for someone to like you and to be around you when you like yourself. They say the more roles you fill, the more sources of self-esteem you have. You must admit that all relationships have their ups and downs and do not ride at a continuous high all the time, even when the two are dating and repeating the words of love all the time. Working together through the hard times will make the relationship stronger. Should you feel your relationship is in trouble, don't just run away from it; you'll only repeat it with the next partner. Use it as a mirror to look at yourself, change yourself before you change your relationship. Understanding that love is not an absolute, not a limited commodity is a very good feature. So, keep on learning new ways to interact with your partner and the feelings can come flowing back, even stronger than before.
Remember, Madonna sings: ‘Love is a bird, she needs to fly’ and only you can free it into the sky for it to fly high… Dating is a unique period in a life of every man and only on you depends whether this dating will be a magic fairy-tale or a successive nightmare.
