Romance is a grand and wonderful thing. But, that is NOT what I seek here. I seek only knowledge of languages, cultures, and people. I have met some totally awesome friends here in busuu. And, if my good fortune continues, I will meet even more!!
With regard to romance: For me, trust is a normal, natural part of a relationship. It is the foundation for love. Perhaps I am too trusting. But my heart always tells me to trust until I have reason NOT to trust. Nothing can destroy a relationship as quickly as the absence or loss of trust. Nothing can hold a relationship together more securely than mutual trust. And, totally unrelated to trust, talk to each other...about the big things... and the smallest, insignificant things to show your interest in each other and to actually share your lives... so much for my take on romance. ;-)
