Truth relationship lies sexual love dating

Out of sympathy, we might even be drawn to help and “rescue” our partner and/or try to change him or her back into the ideal we “fell” for. But lust can also lead to true love as we become attached to and get to know our sexual partner, and lust doesn’t always fade.

I’ve seen couples married for decades that enjoy a vibrant sex life.

Whether your obsession about someone is a sign of love or addiction?

Excitement and desire may be heightened by intrigue or our partner’s unpredictability or unavailability.

We may remain attached and even crave our partner, but our discomfort or unhappiness grows.

Time spent in fantasy fuels our craving to be with him or her.

This is normal when it doesn’t take over our lives.

When differences and serious problems are largely ignored, minimized, or rationalized, it looks more like codependency, because we’re not really seeing or loving the whole person.

Facing the truth would create inner conflict about our fear of emptiness and loneliness.

When it’s purely lust, we’re not too interested in spending time together without sex or the expectation of it.

We don’t want to discuss real life problems and may not even want to spend the night.

Fantasies are mostly sexual or about the person’s appearance and body, and we aren’t interested in meeting the person’s needs outside the bedroom – or maybe even inside!
