Relationship

There are a lot of rules about relationships. I think they are largely bullshit. Here are my rules:

3) You will permit yourself to be abused by another only to the extent that you abuse yourself.
4) There is only one valid promise to a lover: I will give my love generously, and receive your love graciously.
