A romantic relationship is one of the most rewarding, and difficult, types of relationship. The adrenaline rush of the first date, first kiss or first overnight trip puts us on cloud nine.

To be successful, you must communicate your feelings in a healthy and loving manner and allow the other person to do the same.
