So you’re in love…I mean really in love. ¬†This is it. ¬†You’ve grabbed the brass ring. ¬†You can’t get enough of each other. ¬†You get along on every level, in and out of the bedroom. ¬†When you’re apart, you miss each other. ¬†When you’re together, you feel like you could spend 24/7 with each other and not get tired or bored…or could you? ¬†Is it possible to get too much of a good thing? ¬†In reality, we all know that it’s seldom possible to actually spend all day, every day together – but what about just most of the time? ¬†If you’re in the “honeymoon stage” of the relationship weekends together probably don’t present much of a challenge. ¬†So maybe it’s a good idea to extend that time a bit and see what happens. ¬†How about a week or more? ¬†Is it still just as wonderful? ¬†This is a good thing to do in the early stage of a relationship that you think might go the long haul. ¬†Because once you’ve been in a relationship a while and some of the lust and luster wear off, it’s good to know that you’re with someone you can enjoy being around for extended periods without too much hassle. ¬†Even better if you actually want to be around them. ¬†I do believe that being in a lasting relationship does require a lot of time together…absence does not make the heart grow fonder in my opinion. contrary to the old saying. ¬†Just as being together 24/7 all the time might not be possible or even prudent, spending too much time apart tends to create frustration and apathy – a sure prescription for disaster, and the thing that many celebrity marriages fall prey to. ¬†Also, it’s always a drag to find out that your prince is really a frog or your princess is actually an ogress. ¬†If that’s the case, better to discover it sooner than later. ¬†And the only way to know for sure is by giving yourselves the chance to spend the time to really get to know each other in every way – the good, the bad and even the ugly parts!
