This was a great article, with the personalities, sincerity, and maturity of Rory and Adam shining through. You are right, when I met my husband, a relationship just wasn't that hard anymore. Dating should not be that difficult. Many adults don't understand this basic principal, and continue to make one bad mistake after another.

Keep on keeping on. Your love will grow.
