relationship based in the present time between two people who choose to enjoy and love each other, without looking back at past relationships and without allowing baggage to cloud the enjoyment of the here and now relationship
. The here and now relationship excludes future marriage
proposals, excludes long-term expectations and excludes mutual goal planning as a couple. The here and now relationship is accepting of each other, is committed but the couple chooses to keep focused on today, not the past and not the future. The here and now relationship has the freedom to evolve into a permanent relationship if the couple chooses and the opposite is true, it has a downside potential risk of one person wanting more and chooses to terminate that relationship.
1. The woman at the party asked me if we were thinking of marriage, I told her we have a “here and now relationship”
2. A couple
who accept their obligations may prohibit them from developing a permanent relationship
as in one person moves to east coast and the other stays on the west coast, they are happy to engage in a “here and now relationship” until the obligation surfaces.
3. My mate
is uncertain if I am the one for him. We both love
each other and enjoy being together. I am accepting of a “here and now relationship” but he is at risk of losing me if I decide I want more.
