There is an irresistable attraction
and an atmosphere of love and passion. Both feel the other person
is their "type", and each tends to get a real ego boost and energy buzz from their partner. For him, the question "Is it Love or Addicion?"
is vital. Powerful sexual attraction mixed with memories of painful past experiences adds a touch of drama to the picture.
The desire to make each other happy, to lift each other up, to inspire and to help, to share resources, information and positive attitudes, opens new doors and new avenues of expression and helps to build up self-confidence. They value and respect the best in each other and this along is the key to the prosperous and successful life.
Learning from each other is the way to become more successful and mature unless the criticism becomes unconstructive. There is certainly a mutual attraction escalated by the feel of safety and protection.
Friendship, Freedom, Inspiration
