"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."

These images show the names of well known lovers, perhaps making us contemplate their relationships. But do our perceptions of couples we know in our own lives affect how we conduct our own relationships? Is there a perfect partner? Is there love at first sight? Do we settle? Do we not? 

Lust, passion, infatuation and even death. When we develop romantic relationships we can have such an enormous impact on each other and those around us.
