    success in relationships almost invariably correlates with the amount of sustained attention, effort and, occasionally, self-sacrifice that each partner is prepared to bring to it.

    the more you put into relationships, both in terms of effort and understanding, the more you get out of them.

    When couples are suddenly able to see what lies beneath their ‘locked-in’ behaviour patterns it can mark a turning point in their relationship.

    The more you are able to gain insight into the hidden agendas, feelings and unspoken communications, and uncover what is really happening between the two of you, the better placed you will be to deal with conflict, change negative and destructive patterns of relating that eat away at the fabric of the relationship, and bring those vital qualities of mutual nurture, respect and genuine love into play.

    It is about mastering the art of true connection and intimacy, which in turn is about satisfying a very human need to which we are all entitled to aspire: to have someone with whom you can share your dreams and schemes, your good days and your bad days, your fears, your tears, and the passing years; in essence someone to be there for you – and you for them.

    In the end, everything comes down to attitude, more specifically a willingness to listen, to understand, to be open and honest, and, within reason, to accept.

    taking some time to consider the bigger picture that has hopefully been flagged up by these psychological ‘x factors’, and learning to step back from the ‘wow factor’ that draws us in time and again, it is my hope that you will be better prepared to place your relationships on a stronger footing from the start.

    Forget the idea of finding one person who will complete you.
    • Being passionate about someone means more than having sex.
    • Accepting someone with all their faults is the key to loving them.
