Sounds fantastic! In fact, I can almost taste it! LOL Then reality kicks us in the crotch. Yes, ladies I know it hurt you being kicked there as well. :) Our individuality surfaces, you know, those things that annoy the living hell out of one another! Then we start panicking and thinking, wait, that person is not our soul mate, our twin flame... then more distance ensues.. Sound familiar?
There's a balance between reality and our original dreams coming together. First we must realize that typically both of you want the same things: passion, desire, feeling loved and respected. Then what the hell happened in the mean time to trigger the spiral..
Because problems arise, does not mean your two are not soul mates! Not at all! True love is still loving one another and respecting one another after an argument .
Bumps in the road are just that, growing pains. It does not resemble you two were not made for one another! Now, if you have two extremes of beliefs on sex, live philosophies, to have children or not, etc... Now I would say, those are huge construction zones, versus speed bumps in the journey of love.. ;)
