truth is (in my opinion) all relationships take a lot work to keep them healthy. Sometimes the "work" is fun so it doesn't seem like work and other times it's like digging ditches. You've got to put in the time and effort to keep it alive. It's just like working at a job. you put in 8 hours a day and you get paid. Some days are so good they feel like 2 hours and you wouldn't mind putting in extra time over 8 hours. Other days suck and your 8 hour day feels more like 12. But if you start leaving early, playing sick, and surf the net all day, it's only a matter of time before you get written up, lose pay, or even worse - fired.
I agree, but shouldn't there be more days you don't mind putting the work in and fewer days you want to leave early?
Sure, but I'm not sure I see your point. All relationships start off fresh, fun, and putting in the overtime hours is enjoyable and interesting. What happens after your heard each others stories and had sex 1000 times. It's easy to settle for 8 hours exactly. but now there is little chance of promotions or pay increases. You have to make a little effort now to keep your job fresh to keep motivation up. I guess you could start a new job every time the freshness wears off, but that's not going to advance your overall career very far. Successful people find something they love and then work extremely hard to stay on top.
You don't see my point. And, I think a "job" is not as good a reference to a relationship as it could have been. But, I know what you were trying to say.
