Hi Chris,

I’m interested to hear your perspective on “expectations” in a heterosexual relationship. I’ve seen the role of expectations play out both in my relationships and those of my friends.

I’ve often observed one person bringing out the best work ethic in their partner. Many a time I’ve seen a person go from being unmotivated, to being very efficient and disciplined in achieving “relationship goals.”

However, I’ve also seen situations where the importance of achieving an expectation or goal was a source of disagreement and distress within a relationship. I would love to hear your thoughts on expectations and goal setting in a relationship. Thanks for your time.
