Advice for Me - regarding relationships...

You appear to have mastered many of the skills necessary for successful relationships. Congratulations! Remember, however, that no one is perfect – everyone needs to put effort and thought into their relationships. Keep the lines of communication open. In times of stress in particular, be sure that you and your partner are able to express yourselves openly. By talking about what your needs are, you can surmount many potential roadblocks. Hang on to the romance in your relationship. Remember, it is the little touches that count. If you have to, schedule a time for you and your partner outside of the hustle and bustle of life. Learn to look at conflict as an opportunity to learn and grow together. Chances are, you will experience many conflicts in a long-term relationship. Learn to deal with them productively, and you will both be happier in the long run.
