Would you not want to learn this formula today? Would you not want to share this important information with everyone whom you know and love?
The good news is that you now have an opportunity, (probably for the first time in your life) to educate and empower yourself about the complex world of relationships in ways that you never dreamed possible. I promise you that my formula will change the way that you will look at relationships forever. It may even save your life!
Predicting the Future: Family Background: Take a close look at your partner’s parents’s relationship to get a good idea of what you might expect from him. Family background is the first place to look for your partner’s programming. What we learned as children we play out as adults; unless we have learned to acknowledge, address and take whatever steps are necerssary to resolve our problems from the past.
Lurking Around the Corner: Skeletons in the Closet : You will learn how to recognize the signs of alcoholism and other kinds of substance abuse. You will also become very aware of what constitutes verbal, emotional and physical abuse, so that you will NEVER accept abuse of any kind.
More Skeletons Lurking : You will learn how to recognize depression, anxiety and other psychiatric disorders which are often invisible to the untrained eye and are ALWAYS major obstacles to a successful love connection.
Listening Carefully: Did You Hear What I Said? How well or how badly you are your partner are able to express emotions like love, fear, disappointment, anger and pain will make or break your relationship.
The Art of Compromise: Problem-Solving:. This is probably the most important ingredient of all. It is essential to discover your partner’s attitude and level of skill in dealing wil conflict and compromises early on in your relationship. And unless you and your partner are committed to acknowledging, addressing and resolving issues, your partnership will be doomed.
Love and Sex : They’re Not the Same: You will discover the difference been emotional intimacy and sex. People are capable of having great sex together, but have no real emotional connection. And on the other hand, people can have a wonderful emotional connection and have no chemistry. Learn the difference!
Lovemaking: The Agony and the Ecstasy: We all have sexual challenges at different times in our relationships. Education, information, communication and chemistry are the keys to a succressful and exciting sex life.
Old Baggage: Past Loves: Just because you and your partnert may have had multiple relationships, does not necessarily make you relationship savvy. You need to understand what the patterns were in your past relationships. And you need to be clear about what part you played in why your previous relationships failed.
Deal Makers, Deal Breakers: When it comes to making a deal, be honest with yourself. What values can you accept? What can’t you accept? How compatible are you intellectually and educationally? Do you share similar goals, lifestyles, religious beliefs, interests, feelings about money, views about children and careers?
Being Realistic: The Perfect Partner Does Not Exist: Ask yourself 3 questions:
1. What do I want and need in a relationship?
2. What do I not want and need in a relationship?
3. Describe my relationship.
Be honest with yourself. Remember, certain compromises and trade-offs are okay to make. However, certain situations should never be tolerated under any curcumstances.
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP JOURNEY!
