I was talking to a young woman yesterday and I told her that I wrote a book
on how to have the idea relationship. She then put me on the spot and asked me
if I can tell her in a line. I replied:
“Be willing to drop all your expectations and replace them with agreements
that you continually work on improving as your desires are not being met perfectly.”
yeah i like it!
getting agreements cost time and patience but I think it’s a well worth investment.
Whereas when we are impatient and think others should just get it or read our minds – then I think we’re more likely to have expectations and take shortcuts.
Impatience,, assumptions, promises and expectations all gang up to corrupt and undermine what starts out as glorious sex and all lovey dovey warm feelings that we call “love”. I reckon that rethink agreements are the road less traveled or the holy grail of relationships.
