Do you think a romantic relationship can ever be equal or will one partner always love and/or compromise more than the other? Given the choice, would you rather be the one who loves more or is loved more?
Being that I've never been in a 'real' romantic relationship, only short-term...whatevers, I don't know that I rightly have the authority to speak on this. But I will.
I really don't think a 'relationship' is ever MEANT to be completely equal, 50/50 type thing. The imbalances are what makes us grow. Constantly striving toward a balance and being honest with what you feel you're getting and or missing. I think that moves it forward.
Then again, what do I know? I'm sitting around reading a Jim Butcher novel and posting on LJ on a Saturday night. You know what? Right this second, I don't think I'd have it any other way. So there.
