Living our lives we run into, work with and connect with so many people and sometimes, if we are real lucky, we make a true friend... Which brings me to my question. What is a true friend?

Often, we don't even realise what's at the bottom of our partner's sudden outburst, tears, anger or other strong emotional reaction - we think it's because of xyz issue (not washing the dishes, flirting, going out with mates too often...).

You Say Potato and I Say Potahto - How Can We See the Same Thing So Differently?

Dr. Bill Cloke | Posted 07.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Dr. Bill Cloke

Couples are frequently talking about entirely different events while discussing the same event. Or they will identify qualities within a person like "She was so angry with me" and as I was sitting right there I could see that it was not happening that way. Allowing for my own warped sense of reality I am often amazed at those inconsistencies within an interaction between seemingly rational people.

I'm not saying it isn't a wonderful happy ending: falling passionately in love with someone for the rest of your life, someone who'll forever support you and of whom you'll never tire.

Cohabiting is hard. For most of those who do it, it's not as simple as just living together and carrying on as normal. Compromises and sacrifices must be made. You've got to deal with the fact that this person, who used to give you your space, is now all up in your space.

Men far too often get caught up in a million things, including their crack phone habit, to stop, look and listen to their mate. Women are about as obvious as a train coming through the room when it comes to what they want. So unless you are brain dead, take notice and ask how they are.
