    "Relationships are like a bacon and egg breakfast, and people are like chickens and pigs. one is involved, the other is commited."

    I think there is some truth to this saying. Do most people pretty much fall in to one category and stick with it, or does it change based on the relationship?

    I don't mean to be dense, but I don't think I understand that statement.

    Is it saying chicken = involved and pig = committed cuz it has to die to make the bacon?

    i think it changes over the course of the relationship, as feeling change and things come up. It's kind like another quote I heard at some point...something about how some old couple's relationship lasted so long because neither of them fell out of love at the same time. ..if that makes sense.

    I think in my past LTR, our roles in the relationship definitely changed.

    I started out as the "commited" one and later, as I began to question the relationship, I became only "involved."

    She then became the "commited" individual (in some ways) and asked why I never spoke about marriage anymore, etc.

    Whoever has less interested invested controls the relationship.

    a good relationship is not about whos in control...both parties should not be worried about having the upper hand, its an = thing in which case both "pigs"...obviously not all relationships are that way.

    No, an ideal relationship is not about who's in control.

    And like so many things in life, the ideal is an unattainable fantasy so long as human beings are involved.
