What LR said makes sense. Take the emotion out for a second and understand the personal goals.
I don't think LR would ever say relationships don't contain emotion (in fact she may be the last person to say it haha), but its difficult to work in the context of a relationship without understanding what you want/need/respect. Otherwise you could end up in an emotional tailspin.
Obviously past that talk to your partner about everything involved and move from that point forward understanding your individual goals and the goals of a couple.
