The moral of the story is that this can be applied to every single type of romantic relationship.”Feminine energy (which is creative, flexible, and ever-changing) sees the nuance in relationships.No pairing of people should be forever stuck in one way of being.At the end of the day, and as idealistic as it may sound, love should be unconditional.It shouldn’t only be given when you’ve done a certain number of things to earn it; it shouldn’t be hard work, much less hard work.Now, I'm sure you have all heard of this phenomenon before, but I'd like to elaborate a bit on my feelings about this dating pattern.
In every dating environment, whether it be casual, exclusive, or hell, even an engagement, one partner is the settler and the other is the reacher.
Men’s self-help (which The Passion Trap‘s limiting definitions falls under) often gravitates towards this overly black and white dichotomy of “this is exactly how things are, with no variation.” In chasing after certainty, subtlety and nuance gets lost. One of you might feel that the other is more physically attractive.
Maybe your partner brings more emotional durability to the table.

He has been adamant about not having a relationship.
