Affection, Appreciation, Gifts, Love, Trust, Communication, Respect and Intimacy. Developing a strong and dynamic connection requires hard work and cooperation from both sides. So I think the above factors are the main key for a healthy romantic relationship.
Sorry, I forgot that you posted a forum thread and not a hub on the essentials of a romantic relationship. Anyway, this is a timely question because Valentine's Day is so close upon us.
Speaking as a person who has been married for more than 35 years, I would say the most important elements are love, trust and mutual respect. If you are in a relationship with someone, and you find that you value that person's life as much as you value your own life, then I think you have the basis of a long-lasting union.
Thank you. My bf and I don't usually take sweet or mushy photos together. We love doing wacky antics. Hahaha... Thanks for dropping by my forum post.
...okay...then i guess one of the basics is having a sense of humour and being able to enjoy each other and have some fun...not to be sooooo seeeeerious all the time. ...i get the feeling you two do just that...good for you!...and keep it up...

Is absolute honesty always possible/desirable in a romantic relationship?Is there any time when "little white lies" are okay? If so, what defines a "little white lie"? Or is honesty always the policy that must be adhered to?
