Dream House Of a Thousand Kisses

Express your current obsession with a womyn to let her know that her efforts haven’t gone unrecognized. Explain to her how she provides you with mental, physical, & emotional support. Speak metaphors that clarify your position in the life of your relationship. Relationships engage a backbone-to-backbone collision that lays cement for a foundation, that produces the relationship’s shape. They say that relationships between young people lack sophistication. As if age makes our romantic bonds lack an understanding of equality and struggle. Even as teenagers and young adults, our decisions to pursue love propel us to learn about being with people outside of ourselves.  

If clash with our significant others affords us a distinct relationship, I like to think of love as a house. Without working out the problems of our interactions, “young love” ultimately develops broken doors and shattered windows. Shall we look at the facts? 1. It’s rare that someone teaches young men the value of demonstrating that they care  about the relationship. 2. A lot of young womyn never learn without pain that mind-reading isn’t the highest form of communication. Hard times of love not only complicates functioning young relationships. Even more, the dismissal of young love does not give us the right equipment to build relationships.
