to me there are three types of social gravitation.
1)passion , the desire of any - body.
2)love , equal to a measure of the needs of the soul .
3)intellect , the mutual understanding ,or conflict, outside of the previous two . as stimulus can result in interaction. both helpful and/or stimulating.
most relationships have at least one function . of these types of existence operating within their interactive circle.
when only one exists , look for another to add a greater union.
partnership is and should not be competitive.otherwise the ideal becomes a battlefield. where there is no winner.
as with all great unions, the idea of social bonding and mutual gain becomes a platform for survival.
