You're Either Dating A River-person Or A Rain-person: Here's The Difference by logicalhumour: 5:19pm On Jun 26, 2022
Humans are great companions, don't you think so too? When you get to know them, most people become truly lovely. However, I've noticed that there are basically two kinds of people that could come into your life:

1. What i want to call the "River-like people"
2. The Rain-like people

1. The River-like...
The River-like people are like... well, like Rivers. They'll pass through you, however, they're not necessarily stopping with you. They're mostly headed somewhere else.

If you find yourself with a river-like person, the best you can do to "keep" that person is to be accommodating. And guess what? They'll form a lake around you.

With such persons, you being possessive at first would seem like a smart move: it will seem like it's working. However, like they say, "A river knows its way." THEY'LL DROWN YOU and leave in the end IF you try to forcefully hold unto them. Just be accommodating, and let them fill the space you create. Let them form a lake around you!

2. The Rain-like...
Well, you see, these people I call the rain people are opposites of the River People. When these ones fall into your life, you'll see that they've come to stay. They'll fill up as many containers that you have, and stay. They're going no where unless you kick them out.

Spotting river-like vs a rain-like persons

The rain-like people are more often (but not always) the older ones already wanting to settle down. However, you need to be careful with these ones. They mostly can see through you. You can't pretend around them: to keep them, you don't need to do too much. Just be natural. AND IF YOU DON'T WANT THEM, LEAVE EARLY, don't deceive yourself. Rain-like people can easily get you tangled with themselves.

And as for the river-like people, while they tend to be the younger ones, this isn't always the case. But generally, these are the young people not ready to settle down. The key to capturing these set of people for a life-long relationship is not to "possess" them, remember? Try it and they'll chock you, and leave.
Just be patient and accommodating, and who knows? The lake they'll form around you might be the biggest of all lakes they've formed from their origins, or perhaps the only one they've formed/will ever need to form.

So, tell us. Are you currently dating a river-like person or a rain-like person? And how has it been so far?
