    These two are way too sweet

    and just so adorable. You are just way too sweet, Augustus. I love how these characters portray the relationship I love: genuine and passionate, true love which blossomed from friendship. Love does not need to be a fire that is always burning, but rather lives just needs to be...

    I personally believe any kind of relationship

    is always built on a minimum of respect and trust. If these two and other ingredients are not in place then you have a phony relationship with someone. You may want to rethink your priorities and value system in your relationship with another person.

    Trust

    When a relationship is started, there should be mutual understanding and trust. That is the essence. A man and woman should have mutual respect and trust. They have to understand the other. Many relationships are broken because of misunderstandings and loss of trust.

    It is that's why the relationships with

    cheaters never works out because one losses trust in the other and with no trust there's no respect

    I'm really not sure if I can love you

    as much as I did before. I want us to be what we once were, but I'm afraid I'll just get hurt again. I don't know if I'm falling in love with this girl again. Help?

    If a couple does not have respect

    and trust then they do not have a relationship at all. This is especially true when it comes to the bedroom.

    Yes

    I do believe a relationship is built on trust, and respect. I believe if you don't respect your partner, and you don't trust your partner than you guys are not really going to have much of a relationship. I believe that is why a majority of relationships fail, because people...

    How can a relationship not be built on respect

    and trust? There will a whole lot of discord because every time you leave their presence, it stresses them to think of you cheating, or anything that isn't right. without respect or trust you have nothing.

    To have a true and lasting relationship

    If someone leaves you,

    let them go. Letting gi doesn't mean you dont love that person, it means that you let him go and sacrifice your own happiness just to make him/he happy. And if you will stop them not to leave you everything will be disappointment. Love will slowly fades away.

    Not just trust in Love relations,

    I do believe that if you want to have a real

    relationship with someone then you should respect and trust one another. Even if you know the person is lying to you don't call them out on it right away. There could be a good reason for the lie. Just give it some time and see how it plays out. But if you want you to call the...

    It takes time to built a relationship with somebody you want to be with. To me who you are with doesn't matter as long as you are happy. Sex would be nice but I want to meet somebody who lives me for me. That means with my good qualities and my faults. Accepting my common...

    "I Believe A Relationship Is Built On Respect And Trust"

    Yes most definitely if there is no trust, no respect your relationship will go down the drain soon or later. I'm sure that most of you enjoy the first few months when a relationship begins because every thing is rosy colored, and you try not to make your partner uncomfortable...

    A relationship is definitely built on trust

    and respect. My last two relationships were not that great. In my first relationship the guy I was with was never really there for me. I moved from the city I lived in to his just to be closer to him. I am a U.S citizen and he was an illegal so I figured it was easier for me to...

    Too often we seek to satisfy before we think, and we give before we can be given to. Such is a woman's life! We are very much goddesses, as the kabbalists might say, because we are selfless most of our natural existence, giving as lovers, giving as mothers, giving as crones, and...
