THE Relationship CONTINUUM
What is love?
Do you ever question your love for
someone if your chemistry or intensity is
not what you have previously experienced?
Compare new or potential partners to past
relationships?
Is it right to evaluate your past relationships
and feelings against new ones?
Is love at 30+ different?
Relationship/love continuum
My theory
30 -39*
40+16 -29
*Best time to
choose a life
partner
You change.

I am an advertising Account Planner/Creative Strategist so researching, recognising patterns, seeing insights and using my informed intuition all come natural to me. This is a personal project of mine that I had stored in my head for ages as thoughts, insights, and intuition and I finally put pen to napkin on a plane in March 2013.

After many years of talking to friends, over-hearing conversations, reading articles and experiencing life myself I thought that I would collect my thoughts and observations and turn it into a theory/guide. I have never read, heard, or seen anything like this before. It started off as a helpful tool for older guys (no longer under 26) to understand how to evaluate relationships later in life and make wise choices for their future. However I feel that it can be applied to both men and women no matter how old. The Continuum can also be applied to married couples - it just helps to explain some of the changes you may have gone through in your marriage so far but have not been able to understand what or why was happening or prepare you for the changes ahead.

No matter single, dating or married - male or female I hope this can be something positive to understand yourself and relationships a little better.
