How To Tell When You Are Losing Yourself In A Relationship
Being with people we love for a long period often results to both getting some of each other’s characteristics. It could even go to the extent that we will have similar likes and dislikes. An example of this is when one now likes watching a certain type of show which he or she did not care to watch before. Since your partner loves them and you love your partner, you both watch them and you find that they are actually entertaining. On the other hand, the people we love also tend to do the same.
