Great Quote on Relationships

I flipped on the t.v. for just a minute and heard Fox News Anchor E.D. Hill talking with an “expert” about why more relationship breakups happen this time of year.  At the end of the interview, this profound comment was made about why people find themselves in bad romantic  relationships.  It happens,  “when the desire for a relationship surpasses the desire for a good relationship.”

    I can’t quite figure that one out. Perhaps this “expert” meant to say “when the desire for a [new] relationship surpasses the desire for a good relationship.” That would almost make sense. Did he/she offer any advice for sticking with a relationship?

    I’m regularly amused by the sheer amount of nonsensical information that’s dispersed on every 24-hour news network by so-called “experts.”

    Yeah, it was in the context of new relationships that she was pointing out people get in a hurry and I think she makes a great point. Some people want to be in a romantic relationship so bad, they ignore common red flags or compromise their standards.

    No advice was given on sticking with a relationship (mostly talking boyfriend/girlfriend situations), but some great etiquette tips on when you have to end one.

    I see this all the time. Especially with adult singles. They are so scared of being alone that they will latch on to anyone who shows interest. Most of the time this is not a good relationship, it’s just a relationship. The problem is they are usually just as miserable as if they were alone.
