Finding real connection in any relationship is the most difficult to achieve. One has to have knowledge of the opposite party through and through and no one but no one can possibly do that because no matter how open and extrovert a person is, everyone has secrets. Maintaining connection throughout the years is a hard work if not next to impossible. Most people stay together for practical reasons and people constantly evolve. The person you know now will not be the same person in the years to come. Keeping connection alive and working is an art. There has to be a chemistry involved. Deeper connection needs familiarity in the form of recognition. Recognizing a part of yourself in someone and want to feel connected to learn more about the person. Connection is this tiny spark that light up when you meet the right people. It is up to both of you to turn that spark into a real fire and keep it going through hard work.
