Of course, when visitors first arrive at your site and start reading your copy, they probably do not know you and have no reason to trust you. That is why it is so crucial to build your credibility. You MUST explain why you are qualified to help them or solve their problem. That does not necessarily mean official qualifications. It may simple be that you have experience the problem that brought them to your site in the first place, and you found a solution to the problem that you want to share with them! AND you must show that you are just like them. A great way to accomplish this is by telling a story!

Why do so many married couples live like roommates?

I'm Alexandra Stockwell, and today I'm going to talk about why so many married couples end up living like roommates. There are two parts to the answer.

Part #1 Why does it happen?

When couples first get together they're often so happy to find a companion-- someone reliable, comforting, and safe.

When you lean too far into that sense of safety and familiarity, the passion falls away. Safety and stability dominate which leads to the disappearance of chemistry, mystery, and spontaneity.

That is why so many couples ended up living like roommates. 

Part #2 What can you do about it?

What can you do to bring back the passion?

Many people grow up learning that the key to a great relationship is to compromise. With this view, it's important to avoid making your partner uncomfortable, and it's best to put your own needs aside for the sake of your partner. I completely disagree with that.

The key to reigniting passion and deepening intimacy is learning to become uncompromising. It means learning how to bring all of who you are to your relationship, and making room for your partner to do the same. 

You learn to speak up when something matters to you. This does not mean you are dominating or that you get your way. It means you reveal the truth of who you are and figure it out from there. Sharing in this way rekindles the passion, dynamic energy, and emotional intimacy without sacrificing the stability that is so comforting.
