Always remember thet this person was who they are when you met them. In other words, if a guy is used to hanging with his friends on Tuesdays and going fishing wih his brother on saturdays.please encourage that to continue. Have seperate lives, but still be together. That way when you are together, then it will be quality, not quantity. Go with the flow of a relationship and give as much as you receive. Respect is key. Individualtiy is crucial.
