    “We enter relationships because the other person becomes part of ourselves, and that expands us,” Dr. Aron said. “That’s why people who fall in love stay up all night talking and it feels really exciting. We think couples can get some of that back by doing challenging and exciting things together.”

    I can only say from experience that the above quoted sentence is absolutely true! If you CAN’T “stay up all night talking” about anything and everything – then is it really love, or is it about not being alone? Something to think about. Then again if you are not in the same room at night, well I guess you know the answer then.


    ps – did I put the quotes in the right place?

    Yes, it makes perfect sense. Also, I filled it in Local Threat when first seeing it, which really surprised me.
