He’s Uplifting, Not Abusive — and so Are You!

When you’re in a good relationship, you’ll want to back your guy, highlight his strengths and fill in the gaps he might leave.

He’ll do the same for you.

What is a good relationship?

One in which you build each other up, rather than tearing each other down.2

There’s Real Chemistry


I have a total problem with chemistry. Before he and I started dating, I used to get tingly and lightheaded when we were just near each other. But when the relationship started, we progressed very quickly into heavy making out, rubbing, touching, pretty much anything that didn't require our pants to come off. (We talked about it, and we want to wait for a while before having sex). I don't feel anything when we kiss. It feels nice, of course, but I don't feel an insane passionate attraction and I don't get tingles or anything. I AM attracted to him though, and our relationship has pretty much every other thing on the list. Did we just move to fast, physically, at the beginning? Is physical chemistry something that sometimes has to grow with time, as I get to know him on a deeper level emotionally? Is he (or I) just a bad kisser? I really don't want to break up with him because we just seem so compatible otherwise.
I have most of these..but the problem is my guy and i were not even in a relationship yet... were deff thinking about our future and were always happy to see eachother and we both really like eachother. He said that I'm his girl and that I'm his and stuff..but we live in diff towns so its hard. I have a feeling we're going to work though because we both really care about eachother and like eachother
