Losing Interest Quickly
Question from a female junior from Indiana wants
to know: I have never really had a good
relationship. One minute I'm head-over-heels in
love with someone and the next minute I'm not

Dr. Caron's Answer: The secret to finding
someone to love is first finding someone to like. A
true love relationship takes time - it's not
something one jumps into lightly. Take a look
inside yourself. Spend time thinking about what you
really want in a relationship with another person.
What things do you bring to the relationship? What
do you hope to gain? You may want to spend some
time talking with a counselor about these issues.
It's important that we think through our dream
about what makes a love relationship - then maybe
it can become a reality.
