Dear Laurie

Dear Laurie,

I am in the early months of a new relationship. I know this man is a great man, yet as we progress, I am struggling to keep connected emotionally. How do I create and maintain a heart to heart long term relationship?

I know that this man and I are both very spiritual and so love our time together. There are some short term stressors in our relationship. His work takes him away from us in time and space.

Do we need a form of couples counseling or do I need to let go and trust the process? I love him so and respect him deeply.

Please help?
