I think it is more than possible for a romantic relationship to be equal. In thinking about it, you realize that relationship is a uniquely suitable word. When asked "what kind of relationship" do you believe in, you really do have to ask what relations do you see people having? How do they relate?  Well, I know that they can be equal, that two people can share the same relative positions. In fact, I would say that, if you don't feel equal, you probably don't have a true relationship. The catch is, though, that the equality can only begin to be achieved if you have trust and faith. Indeed, it's almost a catch-22. If you don't have trust, you can't love. I know the times that I have felt most in love or the most intense affection have been when I felt really (and safely) loved in return. This, for me, makes me only comfortable in equal relationships, in relationships where  both people love each other equally. But, if I had to choose, I would certainly rather be loved more than be the one in the relationship that is loved less.

That said, when we talk about equality in relationships, we aren't really talking about equality of affection, are we? I mean, when you discuss compromise, etc., you are asking a slightly different question. My answer to that... would take too long to answer here, so I won't try.     

Do you think a romantic relationship can ever be equal or will one partner always love and/or compromise more than the other? Given the choice, would you rather be the one who loves more or is loved more?

I have been up livejournaling, getting my itunes in order, and cleaning for my sisters' visit to Taiwan. In the meantime, I found a subbed version of Sho making all of Arashi in wii characters. They were so cute, I am re-engergized for cleaning!   ><

Having written memoirs and personal narrative essays before, you would imagine that it would be a simple matter to post online in a blog, but it isn't. Worries about expressing trivialities aside, concerns about destroying others' privacy also aside, what exactly does one share with the e-verse?

Oh, well, I suppose I'll post my ramblings about this until I have an idea.  ><

I've been living in Taiwan for almost a year now, and, during that time, I met a girl who had met a band and introduced that band to me. That band is Arashi, so I thought I would come to live journal to find more of their work. I have been really busy with my work here, but I am going to start posting more.
