7 Signs It's Time to Get out of a Roller Coaster Relationship ...


A roller coaster relationship is often a wild fusion of fierce chemistry, an irrational desire to be together and frequent breakups.

Thirty years of the roller coaster and I'm still afraid to leave..the unknown is scarier than the known.
