The Relationship Recipe

Like most of you, I have spent many years looking for the absolute best recipe for Relationships.  After many failed attempts in the kitchen, I have refined the dish to absolute perfection.

The number 1 most important thing is the ingredients- DO NOT substitute.  I tried substituting ingredients due to lack thereof.  I even attempted to skip some, with hopes they would be added later.  But I learned there is no substituting these main ingredients, or their equal measures. If they are not there to begin with, chances are they will not magically appear in the cabinet later.

Much like a soufflé, the Relationship must be prepared when you are in a positive mindset.  Everything is energy, and like attracts like.  Have you noticed that whatever you are working on while in a sour mood usually turns out a failure?

In addition to being in a positive and open mood, one must have plenty of time set aside for the prep and cooking.  Don’t set out to begin your Relationship knowing you have big things coming up. You wouldn’t start baking a cake and go to the theater, for instance.


For the most delectable Relationship, look for these ingredients:

Equal measures of:

  • Trust
  • Time
  • Empathy
  • Honesty
  • Commitment
  • Acceptance
  • Respect
  • Empathy
  • Kindness
  • Compassion
  • Mix well and equally.  These ingredients cannot be altered or adjusted.


Add these ingredients to taste:

  • Humor
  • Affection
  • Dependability
  • Listening
  • Compromise
  • Appreciation
  • Communication
  • Self-discipline
  • Consistency


You will have to balance these following ingredients as needed.  Some will need to be stronger than others at different times.

Fold into the Relationship, stirring well:

  • Vulnerability
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Strength
  • Validation
  • Happiness
  • Optimism
  • Passion
  • Patience

Mix and prepare the Relationship as long as it is needed.  Patience and consistency are key for this endeavor.

Look for only quality ingredients.  The greatest restaurant in the world would never skimp on dollar store ingredients.  Nor should you.

Follow the recipe carefully, balancing certain ingredients at appropriate times, stirring constantly, and you will be rewarded with the tastiest and most satisfying Relationship.

Bon Appetit!
