A lot of people are more romantic than I am: relationships help them get everything else in order. I'm very pragmatic; I work mostly the other way around.
I understand. It's definitely different for everyone...but I think re-iterating the idea of enjoying the time you have, even if it just a few minutes a day, even if your surroundings aren't ideal, is always a bit helpful. There is a coping mechanism sometimes where people might romanticize self-torture/happiness-denial as a sign they are "working hard" or "doing what needs to be done" which is sad/scary considering how little time we get on this rock. Just throwing these ideas out there for people who might mis-read your post & similar posts as affirming that perspective!
Any new relationship is hard. Even if you are rolling in money. I don't envy people in that stage!
