Home: Exploring Long Term Relationships

What is my Concept of Love?

Is there such a thing as the right person?  

Can we deeply love only certain people? Can you build emotional connection if it is not there? Am I emotionally connected to him/her?


How important is the right chemistry,  or sparks (called chispas in Spanish), that strong initial passion that sometimes occurs when two first meet. Do we know in the first 5 minutes of meeting someone if it is there?  Or can chemistry develop develop more slowly and begin after several meetings?

Irrational Emotions

Am I really in love or are these irrational emotions?  How real is the temporary insanity of new romance?  How do we know whether it is true love or just physical passion/lust?

Should I stay or should I go?

How do I know when it is time to break-up? Do I want to be with this person for the rest of my life?  Is “til death do us part” realistic?


What is the ideal: monogamy: one sexual partner,  serial monogamy: one sexual partner at a time,  promiscuity: casual sex frequently with different partners. Does getting sexually active early in the relationship cause confusion?
