I think they can exchange nurturing companionship, touch, and all that, and be emotionally close. That is if they live in the same geographical area (that is, "dating.") A dating couple can see each other very often after all. A lot of people complain thier mates are less attentive once they start living together!


You're right that many

You're right that many people notice a shift when couples live together. Usually they are also having frequent conventional sex (at least at first) when they live together. I think that's what makes them take each other for granted...as perception shifts for the worse.

However, close trusted companionship and trust are POTENTIALLY very healing, so the best solution may still be harmony, rather than distance.
