It’s becoming harder and harder to find a real relationship that is based on more than just sex these days.
Yes, of course, I acknowledge that sex is an important factor in a relationship. If you’re not sexually attracted to someone then you’re probably not meant to be in a relationship. But there are other factors that make up a strong relationship that don’t have anything to do with sex.
I like to think that a relationship can be broken down into five categories. All five of these categories must be strong in order to have a real relationship.
Each of these factors brings about a different view on the relationship and its strength. It’s a good idea to keep these in mind while evaluating your current relationship or even when you’re thinking about getting into a relationship in the future.
These factors could mean the difference between a short-term fling and a long term marriage.
