um.. a relationship takes commitment, participation and effort from two people.. that's the only way it will work..
Because the male and female are equal in a relationship or marriage, they are both responsible for handling the relationship.
Both, equally. They're both participants.
Exactly, that's why I'm so sick of my new boyfriend's strict rules... We're not allowed to see each other during the weekdays... he doesn't want to talk on the phone, we have to text or email... we're not allowed to sleep over at each others places... I'm not allowed to take the bus to his house, he has to pick me up and drive me. We're in our 40's... in this normal for 6 weeks into a relationship? I'm all for feeling things out in the beginning, but I can't take this forever. It would be too bad... he's cute, employed, tidy, hung, and he can cook too!
He says that he's divorced, and he broke up with his last girlfriend in the spring. He says he's still friends with his ex-wife and I know for a fact his ex-girlfriend wants him back, but seriously... I'm starting to feel like something's up.
Is this a serious question? Why would it be up to one side?
I never thought ANYONE would ask this question. No, it's not up to just 1 person. If so then it's not a relationship.
Whichever one happens to want to at any given time.
what do you mean 'handle' a relationship?
You're kidding, right? It should be both.
