Humans are beings that seek certain expressions in a romantic relationship. This relationship is being driven on the most profound emotions tagged as love. Everyone seeks everything fluffy. Not so fluffy perhaps, but there are times we yearn for this zing; this replay thrill. Its all okay. A necessary ingredient to spice up that pasta dish.
Since this is the expression of relationship between partners, then why the slack?
Hold on a second. We ain’t saying that relationships are centred on romance only. Neither are we penning to your thoughts that it is the bedrock of an exciting relationship.
Hey! Let’s look at this. Why are some relationship stiff?
Like other relationships, one drive relationship consist of two people, except in one drive relationship, only one person is doing the whole activity. Its an unfortunate problem that even more unfortunately occurs of two often.
“The man who has theoretically continued to say he loves you for ages but had never been willing to give in to a practical commitment”
“The boyfriend who wants to keep taking physically, but gives nothing emotionally”
“The woman who have continued to invest in all aspect of her life but have given no quality time to build her relationship”
“The girlfriend who promises to be true but plays hanky-panky and see it as being witty”.

Here’s the bottom line, they are relationships in which one person always seems to be doing all the giving, the forgetting, the ignoring, the forgiving, the loving, the working- through. While the other person seems to be doing all the receiving.
The interesting thing about one-drive relationship is that no matter who is at the start or at the end. Who is doing the giving or receiving. Who is doing all the pushy or the nagging, it always takes two people to keep the relationship going. Two people who had once shared same emotions. Two people who have had a rush of the adrenaline pumping in them. One way relationship are usually fuelled by two persons who tell you something.
It tells you that behind every one-drive relationship, there’s another person who is giving less and receiving too much. A person. Who continues to heap excuses. A person who continues to refrain from giving love, affection, intellect. A person who sees relationship as a short term goal. A person who sees relationship as a grain of rice which can be bought at any roadside stall. A person who see it as what it should have been than what it is.
