Your answers hint at an inconsistency in your beliefs. It is hard to imagine how such an inconsistency could support the goal of building a long-term mutually fulfilling relationship, thus Navigating Love would only be useful if your goal was to let go of these inconsistent beliefs. It is possible that I am simply misunderstanding your perspective. If so, I would love to understand your perspective better, because in my interviews with hundreds of people, I have yet to meet a single couple demonstrate this perspective in practice. I wish you well in your search for love.
