You’ve gone on quite a number of biker dates, and you’ve had fun on almost all of them. You and your riding buddy have weathered various mishaps, mistakes, embarrassments and have certainly had quite a few smiles and laughs along the way.
You’ve gone for motorcycle rides together, and you have learned each other’s riding styles, and know how to react when you are on the road together. You found a favorite greasy burger joint, and a spectacular scenic lookout that has quickly become your “spot”. It’s really starting to look like this whole biker friendship or biker dating thing may work out after all.
You’ve done all the hard work already finding the nearly perfect companion. It’s time to sit back and relax, right? Everything should be smooth sailing from now on, just you and that special someone you have found.
Well, before you fire up your chopper and go riding off into the sunset, there are a few things that you should realize. First, fairy tale endings, although magical rarely happen in real life. That’s what makes them so wonderful. They allow us to escape from our everyday lives and for a brief moment live in a world where everything is right and good.
However, like the real world, real relationships do take a bit of effort to maintain. It is also good to remember that relationships are dynamic, and sometimes volatile. However, there is also a core strength that allows the relationship to grow, change and alter to meet just about any challenge that is presented. The trick, of course, is to find ways to make sure that your new relationship thrives in not just the good times, but also strengthens in the darker times. It is an idea that a relationship is a living, breathing thing, which can grow and evolve along with the people involved.
