A relationship. Two people, multiple desires. Sometimes they match. Sometimes they don’t. Sometimes one of the people does not get what they want. Sometimes they do. The dance of negotiation. Of big things. Of little things. Of the toilet seat. Or the job offer. Of the city or the suburbs. Of the tolerable and intolerable. Of the negotiable and non-negotiable.
Remind me why we do this...or why we don't.
