I agree with you to a point. Time is a necessary ingredient because it is a reliable agent of change. It will allow you to see the other individual over time...and be able to measure any changes in behavior. This, then, allows us to know them well.
CJ, We're on the same page. As I stated it takes (awhile) before people reveal their "authentic selves". Every relationship (starts off) perfect. :-)
Luck does play a part, but careful consideration, planning and patience is the key. By the way, congratulations on your upcoming wedding anniversary.
Good point. A hot start often leads to a cold ending.
Right on, Jaydawg!!!
No amount of time will help if one is not paying attention. And, the more complicated someone is...the more time it will take to truly know them.
