To have a solid relationship nowadays seems much of a great challenge. Many of us would think it’s the simplest thing. What could be so hard – you fall in love, you succeed in conquering her/him one way or another and then everything should run smoothly. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong! A relation has to be fed as we feed our mouth and brain, and that means everyday. Otherwise, everything will fly to the winds.
So, if we are wise enough to accept we aren’t good at everything by default, there are some great minds that have written on relationships. Paying some attention to them might go a long way for us.
