This simple conversation has a lot to do with the dynamics of a relationship, which is a lot more complicated than we think.
Let’s start with the most basic definition of a relationship: being in a relationship. How many of us have a friend or family member who is in a relationship with someone else? Those relationships don’t just take the form of friends and parents and siblings and so on. There are many kinds of relationships out there. A friendship can be with a person you see every day and know nothing about.
A relationship is a relationship whether it is with a person you know absolutely nothing about or a person you do know absolutely nothing about. So a friendship is a friendship with a person you see every day and know absolutely nothing about. A relationship is a relationship with a person you know absolutely nothing about or a person you do know absolutely nothing about, and the two of you are still in it.
Relationships with people we know absolutely nothing about, or people we do know absolutely nothing about, are the hardest to describe because we don’t really know them. It’s a weird thing to say, but I’m glad I don’t have to say it. When I think of a person I know absolutely nothing about, my brain thinks of someone a bit like a character in a movie. It’s the closest I can come to describing my relationship with someone I have absolutely no idea who they are.
In our video series, “Dynamics of a Relationship”, we’ve been exploring the way we feel about people, and how we think of them. We’ve been looking at how we think they behave and how we feel about them. And today we’re going to look at how we think they feel about us.
Because you can’t really make an exact guess with 100% certainty about what someone actually feels about you, we thought it would be nice to take the guesswork out of it by taking a look at how other people actually feel about themselves. And what we found was startling. It turns out that a lot of the things people think of as their most important relationships actually fall short.
So a lot of relationships don’t seem that important to us. We often think we have a lot in common with our partner, but not in the way that we think they feel about us. We often think we’d be perfect for each other, but in reality, if we were to be perfect, we’d fall on opposite ends of the spectrum. We think we’d be an ideal couple, but in reality, we wouldn’t be.
This reminds me of something I once read that I want to find a quote of on this page. It was a quote by a professor of psychology that goes like, “If two people are married every single day of their lives, and they never want to get divorced, that means they are perfect for each other.” Well, this is pretty much exactly what happens in relationships. We go from being perfect to being somewhere in between.
In a relationship, we can be stuck in the middle. We have all these goals and desires that we want to accomplish, but we also have to deal with the fact that we have to sacrifice our needs for the needs of our partner. This is one of the reasons that we often get caught in the middle of our own relationships. However, if you’re committed enough, you can build a relationship that is based on compromise and understanding.
As an example, we had a couple of times when we were dating and we were both working full-time and we decided to have a “date” where we went out and had fun. We were both very picky about where we went and what we did. We went out to dinner with his parents, had a couple drinks, and then went to bed. It didn’t last very long, and we both knew that the day would come when we would have to say goodbye.
