You already know them so effectively! The 2 of you’ll be excellent collectively! You begin creating plans and desires in your head. In doing so, you set each of you up for ache and misery.

Friendships and relationships occur naturally and organically. They want time to develop and flourish and there’s by no means a assure that the plant goes to take root.
