Reality will hit soon enough. Why make it come sooner?
In the first phase of a love relationship, the hormones are going a mile a minute and you are lost in a rush of feelings. But sooner or later, something will happen, and you’ll have your first big fight.
What is your strategy for dealing with the uncertainty of knowing whether your relationship can survive that first fight? Do you hold off on giving over to your feelings? Or do you throw yourself headfirst into the relationship, knowing that when you get to the problems, if it doesn’t work out, you’ll survive?
Whatever your strategy, how do you accomplish it? How do you hold back feelings or hold back the progress of the relationship without damaging the intensity of the experience? How do you go full throttle to the first problem and then manage to recover from a breakup?
