One day we met someone, we fell in love and, eventually, he or she became our partner. With the passage of time, the idyll vanished and now we face a real person and full of defects, like us. The fights increase and the situation threatens to become unsustainable. Is love over? It will be time to see the elephant, take it out of the room, serve a tea and present an eviction notice.

Sexologist Mauricio Strugo explains that human ties are diverse because they are made up of people with different stories and different ways of being and being in a couple. According to the specialist, the problem arises when thinking, from the outside, what he responds to and what constitutes “a normal couple”. “Each person in each link has to pay attention from their experience and their feeling to check how are we with the other. See if our partner is meeting our expectations, if it is necessary to make any adjustments, or end the relationship if this causes us suffering, ”explains Strugo.

The phrase “Every couple is a world” It no longer seems such a common place and although each situation is specific, professionals agree that it is very likely that any couple that starts with problems, discussions and excessive disagreements Don’t have a good forecast. On the other hand, a couple that can flow in communicating their differences and complementing each other as partners will constitute a basis to face the difficulties that arise.

When Cupid leaves

“It is necessary to know that the initial ‘crush’ will make us idealize to the other, and for the expectation of wanting to be a couple we see it with very little objectivity. When time passes and we find what we do not like about our partner, it is time to weigh the good and the bad to see if we go to the next level of the link, which is love’, where we choose the other really, without being obnubilar. In young couples, the ‘Falling in love’ it occurs with more intensity, but as we grow in age and experience it usually lasts less time and is not as intense, ”says Strugo.

According to the link specialist psychologist Sebastian GironaWhen we meet someone, in general we try to show our best face in order to please the other. That is natural, but the risk is to show a face that is not real or very forced. Therefore, of course, it is best to be authentic and that they choose us from who we really are.

Strugo, also a link specialist, adds that wanting it to work we do our best to show what the other wants to see, and not who we really are. “We speculate and seduce, but sometimes we overdo it. Don’t we want the other to know us? The idea is to choose us for real or to buy something that is not real? ”, He says.
