In this lesson we're asked the question, "How long does it take to know (if we're compatible)?"
It might seem intimidating at first to talk openly about what you see for your partner's future and what they might see for yours. "Is this something you can dive into right away? Doesn't it take time to develop clear ideas about the strengths and limitations of your partner? Is it even any of my business?"
We clear up the answers to each of these questions and show you a few different ways to approach the conversation so it feels fun and engaging. We also make a distinction between championing someone's future (good) and taking on a pet project to try to fix them (not so good).
“For Small Creatures Such As We,
The Vastness Is Only Bearable Through Love."
