Is it important for your partner to be your coach?

Your together but the conditions are they will coach you to lead the life they think you should be living?

Well i guess if you want to live that life. I think everyone should be self reliant and work together with their own unique traits. Thats how evolution would do it. DNA doesnt seem to like inbreeding. You need 2 separate entities to come together to form a new being.

It’s important to be each other’s support and aim to be like the other not exactly like them but if they are a good example of what success is, that’s what you should try to be as well

No not coach but cheerleader yes.
Coaching is unhealthy unless you personally want that type of controlling relationship which some people do and thats fine for them.

I think that is an incorrect definition of coach. True coaching helps you achieve your own goals. People who are trained coaches are very good listeners who act as a mirror for your thinking to help you see your life from a different perspective.
If someone wants to shape me into the image in their head there is something wrong. Unless I've somehow communicated to them that this was what I want.
Hell no, I'm not a child or a dependent
no your cheerleader and you, theirs

Wouldn't want that

Well, both should coach each other politely whenever either of the two is confused and needs help in decision-making.

Both should understand that the lifestyle of both should be similar and choices should be mutual.🙂

They say the ideal relationship has a flower and a gardener, and that while two gardeners can make it work, two flowers is tough.

it really depends. For some people that might work.

I could see it going wrong too....eg you fail to perform it might get a bit critical.

It's generally the female that tells the male his a no good piece of pie.
