How many times have you thought to yourself. I don’t want to “work” at a new relationship, I want it to be the fun part of my life. And how many times has a nagging voice in your head chimed in, well, just live alone then, because there’s no such thing as a toil free partnership. We will still argue, still have moments of total frustration. Whether its a friend or another partner, relationships do require effort. So be prepared before you get back into the dating game.
