How Far is Too Far? What's Your Limit?

You have seen those relationships or have been these types of relationships... those relationships where you see one partner pushing the other partner's buttons. Sometimes both persons in a relationship are extremely passionate/stubborn and fight for what they believe in aka their opinion. Sometimes one person may be purposely challenging their partner more than what is necessary but it may end disastrously.

So how far is too far? What is your limit? How much is going to be too much... in a past relationship, an ex and I were both very stubborn people. You know those situations where you know you are absolutely correct but the other person thinks that they are absolutely correct as well? That was the kind of situation I was stuck in many times. However, I did realize at times where it's not worth the argument. You should want to say sorry and end the argument because you love your partner and you still respect whatever choices and decisions they choose to make.

But sometimes these friendly debates may turn into overbearing arguments which lead into disaster. So what do you do when you know you are about to reach your limit? What's your solution? What do you choose to do? Has it ever blown up in your face? Have you learned anything from past experiences? What to do, what to do...

Wait, what happened?... WHAT?!

Have you ever had that moment in a relationship where something extremely weird/disgusting happened and you were both just horrifingly amazed? Then you either cracked up or it affected your relationship in a bad way.

An example could be that someone may let out a fart while in the process of making love. What do you do? Honestly, I would be a tiny bit embarrassed but if my relationship was truly in the further stages, I would probably end up cracking up into laughter with my partner. (Honestly it's happened before and that's what ended up happening, so no regrets or shame, haha!) I think that stage in the relationship is beautiful when you may end up having a "gross" moment but you both take it in stride, especially if you are both comfortable around each other. You know you are both super comfortable with each other when you are both in the same bathroom doing whatever daily routines you do after waking up or before going to bed.

So have you had any of these moments? It's what I'd call a hilariously fond moment in a past relationship. I would rather look upon these moments with fondness rather than bitterness so these silly moments help! Share your moments and hopefully they remind you of good times. :)

I'm Addicted to You

Addiction is our topic today!

Have you ever had that one partner where you are/were absolutely head-over-heels for? You seem to gravitate to whatever they want, whatever they do, whereever they are. It might sound a bit stalkerish, but you may find that this person is your soulmate. So when does it go too far that you end up spending all your time thinking or being with this partner?

Sometimes one person in a relationship may end up spending all her spare time with her significant other, rather than splitting it amongst her friends and family as well. So how do you approach this issue with your friend that is becoming addicted to his or her significant other? Do you even approach it? Some people honestly give up and would rather let the person live their life, however they choose. Would you hold an intervention of your own? What would you do??

Speaking from experience, I can say that sometimes time does run away with me. I enjoy my time with my significant other because being both your best friend and your partner makes it even more fun to share new or old experiences together. I do have to say that I did notice that I was neglecting my friends more and more but turned that around after a while but instead of it being brought to my attention, they just let me continue on with my life. I can't say I wouldn't do the same either because of my passive-aggressiveness at times but instead of drifting away from each other, I wish that I had done something sooner or they had told me sooner as well. The past is past though but if you have been through a similar experience, I hope you worked it out as well.

So what do you do with a friend who is becoming more addicted to her significant other and not paying attention to other important aspects in life?
