Riding the Roller Coaster of Love
Have you ever heard the saying “a relationship is like riding a roller coaster”? Just think back to when you first fell in love as well as the first time you rode a roller coaster. What was it like?

It is as if nothing can go wrong, it seems perfect, eternal. But after awhile, it gets harder. Friends criticize the significant other and the arguing begins.
