Myra and Sergei

Post by Debbyemi » 04 Oct 2017, 05:09

Myra and Sergei were always at each other's neck during argument at their initial stage of meeting, when I was much younger, people always say it's a sign of love, could that be true in their case or it's just the sign that they just can't get along. What do you think

I don't believe in lovers fighting in their initial stages. It is said just to cool off fights. I think it is clear case of different thinking and mismatch and mis-communication between strong characters.

I do think there is a mutual attraction there, but they would have to be able to move past their obvious differences in opinion on subjects that are pretty important to both of them. There is promise, though.

I also don't believe in lovers fighting at initial stages. I hear it a lot so I was just wondering.

I think so also, but a lot of work will have to be put in for the relationship to work.

I actually liked their interactions with one another. They seemed like they would be a good couple.

I think that they need to be more willing to listen to each other if they want to move on.

Well, I believe there can be cases like that where lovers don't see any reason to see eye to eye with each other, but some connects them later, and they become best of friends. From the way this story is going, I see the two becoming lovers; I hear there is a part two to this story. Let's find out what happens then...

Do you know any real life example of such a couple?

I think its understandable that two people would have serious miscommunication which would cause conflict in the initial stages of friendship/relationship. That's what Pride and Prejudice is entirely based upon. I think that's part of it for this story as well, because as Sergei became more informed about the whole situation, and Sarah's story unfolded (new information coming into play) they began to agree more.

Most conflicts in every relationship start with a lack of communication or understanding one another.

Very true. There's got to be some common ground somewhere.

I agree their conflicts will be the start of a beautiful relationship!
