Looking for a lifelong, loving relationship? I`ve been with the same partner for 30+ years and we're in love now more than ever. It's not just a coincidence. I've worked at it and the first part was to find the right man for me. I hope I can help you do the same. I've been answering questions online for over a decade & my ratings show that people like my advice. I've also helped people in person and in other ways online.
My own marriage has worked out great, though it has taken work, I've learned a lot and continue to learn. I realize, though, that everyone is different and so is each relationship. I enjoy continuing to learn from others. I know many couples - some who have made poor partner decisions and others who've maintained a lifelong relationship of love. I've also read a lot about this subject.
I am educated as a teacher and primarily work with young people, many who are already attracted to the opposite sex at a young age, but their families often are poor role-models for having a life-long relationship (like mine were, but I succeeded any way).
Many people are searching for a relationship, but many find it difficult to make it life-long. I believe I can help them have a happier life through understanding the nature of this important relationship. I'm sure I already have (over 700 positive feedback).
I will continue to observe others and read about various psychology theories pertaining to romantic relationships. I find psychologists often learn what not to do from working with people with serious problems. My goal is to help people prevent those problems in the first place.
Our hormones are largely responsible for our drive to be with someone and these can now be controlled to some extent - more so as time goes by. Other body chemistry also effects our mood and desires about which scientists are learning more.
Monogamy (having one mate) may not be for everyone whether straight or gay. My advice is for those who believe that they really want a monogamous relationship with the same person for as long as possible. I accept those who don't feel this is the life for them, though I'm not prepared to advise them.

Commitment is a problem for a lot of people, especially if they've been hurt before. Actually, the boyfriend who became my husband did not express a desire for a long-term relationship until I brought
It sure sounds to me like you have a real good chance with this guy. He doesn't sound like the kind of guy who would cheat on you. You seem to feel self-conscious about the personal thing you shared
Bri, It is great that you have learned from your past mistakes! Trust is very important on both sides. Our society makes us worry and sometimes we need to, but we worry much more than needed. People
Thanks for the rating. It sounds like you know this man well enough to decide if his goals are your goals. I waited because I knew my husband eventually wanted marriage and children without a doubt
Hi Alison, I also fell in love with a young, ambitious man who was not ready for a committed relationship. I convinced him to continue to see me and not to see it as me tying him down. We dated for
