Some people think that once we met it was all 'fireworks and butterflies' from then on. It wasn’t…
While I (Jocelyn) felt quite strongly about Aaron immediately and even cancelled other dates that were scheduled, Aaron was keeping me at arm’s length. I had created so much clarity about what I desired in a partnership that I could feel in my gut instinct that Aaron was a part of that.
True and funny part of our story: Aaron tried to break up with me over the phone after two months of dating. We hung up the phone, then I called back within 15 seconds and I said that wasn’t going to work for me!
I could tell that fear was trying to pull him away. He said “oh okay” and we kept dating.
From that point on, we dove into really getting to know each other, including the vulnerable aspects that we would have been nervous to share in the past. It was like we surrendered to the power of what our partnership could be
. We then implemented the values and tools you’ll see in our book
and our lives shifted quite quickly.
