It is quite common for women to want to work on a less-than-extraordinary relationship to make absolutely sure they did everything in their power to make it work. Men, on the other hand, are a little less willing to put in as much effort into a relationship in general. You need to decide how far you want to go to make a relationship work. My experience tells me that if all the elements are not there in the beginning, no matter how hard you work, no matter how much you change, no matter how much the other person tries to change, there will always be something missing. Can you develop that relationship to the pint that it would be a good one? Absolutely! The question I always ask is; Do you want to settle for a relationship that is just “good” or do you want a relationship that is extraordinary? If you want extraordinary there is no settling for less!
