The romantic connection that exists between girlfriends and boyfriends is the subject of much poetry and prose. There tends to be so much drama in a romantic relationship that it is often hard to tell how authentic the feelings between the two people are. We can't help it, it seems that as soon as our hormones get involved we lose our heads. It becomes impossible to think clearly about whether the relationship should continue. Often, only after the relationship has ended and we have gained some distance can we figure out what the relationship was really about.
