Relationships evolve. Sometimes less really is more.
From Charlie Ward in response to Netflix and the Demise of True Romance:
I gotta tell ya, one of the things I miss about being in my last relationship is the Netflix nights. Relationships have to work in the everyday for me if they are to last. Life is not a constant party. There is work to get done and rest to take afterwards. That’s where the money comes from. What I truly want most in a relationship is to be able to come home and relax with her as I do would on my own. If we can do that she’s a keeper in my books or at least she earns major brownie points. Sometimes we go out but mostly life is for real. Each of us have goals and jobs and other things to do. The Netflix nights are nothing to feel bad about as long as you are both comfortable with it. Relationships evolve. Sometimes less really is more. It’s like when you play golf you can’t expect every shot to be a hole in one. In boxing you can’t always go for the knock out. In baseball you can’t always expect to hit a home run. So too everyday is not going to be the most exciting day of your life. If you go into a relationship expecting that then you are bound to be disappointed. yes, deepen your intimacy but don’t feel bad if sometimes life requires that certain days will be a bunt or a jab or a chip shot. Other days you’ll smash it out of the park. Throughout it all you will do well to maintain an even keel, never getting too high or too low. Just playing the game of life together one day at a time. It adds up to a life.
