“When we initially began dating, I don’t think I would have been mentally prepared for a relationship like the one I have with Colin at various points in my life. This is because I was uncertain about defining my own limits and didn’t have a clear idea of what I required or wanted from a partner,” she explained. “But then, I came to the realization that there were certain essential aspects of my personality that I had to communicate to my significant other.”
