Most of us have dreamed about being in a wonderful relationship and may have even been certain we were in one.  At some point, however, we find ourselves feeling disheartened, confused, or frustrated because we are unable to obtain the right tools to find the courage to say what we need or want in order to recover, or maintain that fundamental relationship.
