No matter where we are in the spectrum of love, and no matter where we are in the relationship continuum, many of us want to know how we can thrive in love.
“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” – Rumi
We all want to love and be loved. We all seek intimacy on some level. If we aren’t currently in a relationship, more than likely we have been in some form of intimate relationship, which is the laboratory for the fulfillment of love and intimacy.
At its core, a partnership or marriage implies that we are willing to share ourselves in a truly intimate way with another person, both emotionally and physically; however, there’s no instruction manual that’s available to any of us. Certainly, we all know that new love can be the most delicious part and that older, more mature love can be the harder part.
