  1. Relationships take TWO, not one.


    • So there is no relationship if neither person makes a move & there is still no relationship if one person chooses not to act, react & thus make a move.

      “It takes two baby, it takes two baby. Me & you.”


  2. As a chess player I like the analogy. I think of a chess game sometimes when I’m trying to ‘strategize’ a relationship, usually with coworkers!
