Together one week, apart the next; On, off, on, off, etc. We've all seen them, we all know the type: The couples who have more problems with each other than they have love for one another, the ones that argue more than they play, the ones that seemingly forget the reason they became committed to each other in the first place. They spend the entire existence of their relationship on a roller coaster and it's not the kind I'd consider fun. No, it's not the up, down, up, down, and an occasional thrilling loop. It's the kind that goes up the steepest hill as slow as you could ever possibly imagine, drops you straight down, whips you through one or two quick loops, and then it's over. (Doesn't sound like much fun to me, anyway.) So why do so many people get off, get back in line, and ride it over and over again?
Note to the "Light Switch Romancers" out there:
If you feel as though you are constantly trying so unbearably hard just to make the relationship even exist, shouldn't that tell you a little something? --That maybe, just maybe, it isn't mean to be? If you are fighting more than you are having fun, then why are you holding on so tight? Haven't you ever heard of the word fate?
All the love I've met, I have no regrets.
If it all ends now, I'm set.
