76. In your opinion, what makes a great relationship?

I haven’t realized until recently how much a relationship relies on things other than clicking personality wise. I always thought that if you could click on an emotional and intellectual level, that you could easily fall in love. But the thing is, it’s so not true. It doesn’t matter if your personalities completely mesh and you think you’re just perfect together, if you don’t get those butterflies in the pit of your stomach or have every skin cell tingle on your first kiss, then you’re just not in love like you thought. If you don’t feel like you want to be with that person all of the time, you’re not in love. If you wouldn’t lay down your life for that person in a heartbeat, you really are not in love.

I think all great relationships call for a balance of give and take, with a lot of trust.`With an open heart and you need to have the realization that over the course of time, people change and our definition of love changes. I think it takes a lot to have a great relationship because it’s just so easy to have a bad one.

-this is the last question I’m answering. I have 5 more in my ask so I’m sorry. Thank you for this question though :) I really liked it.
