This is not so much a hint as a statement about relationships in general.
Relationships need energy to survive. Both parties have to want it to be strong and have to be willing to make the effort necessary to keep it strong. Many of the relationships that we have seen fail, did so because one or both of the parties involved did not really care if the relationship lasted. If it continued and they benefited from it - fine, they'll stick around. But make sacrifices or be inconvenienced to keep it going? No way. When, however, both parties really want a relationship to work, and then both parties will put the effort into making it work.
Remember, relationships are not always going to be a bed of roses. There will be problems. There will be times when you will have to bend and give for the continued well being of the relationship. But if both parties really want the relationship to survive and if they are willing to do what is necessary to keep it strong, then they will both benefit from a strong relationship.
The last bit of advice in this chapter is to repeat what we said at the beginning of the chapter. Stay on your toes. Don't be foolish enough to think that just because you are in a relationship you can relax and stop courting her, romancing her, and being the person she fell in love with at your first meeting.
