How Much Is Lust And How Much Is Love?

A good way to tell is to ask how much time do you spend on the phone. (Dennis Prager)

I think this is a great point. In my best relationships, we talk for hours. In fact, in all of my relationships, we’ve been able to talk for hours. I’m hyper-verbal and this communication is vital to me.

I also think that the more you have in common, the better and the more sure your foundation. How well do you integrate into each other’s lives and particularly into the lives of the significant persons in your partner’s life.

Shared commitments to things outside the two of you are bonding, whether it is to art or to religion or to causes or to personal growth or to creating a legacy.

Dennis said today that love is either shrinking or growing. That matches my experience.
