I agree so much with Enterprise Captain- as long as no one winds up injured or in jail, there is no BAD relationship because each one is a learning experience... assuming one learns from it. There are too many people who make the same mistakes over and over.
Regardless of what happens here, at its conclusion, you will no longer be a newbie. You will be able to take the experience with you into your next relationship. You will hopefully be able to recapture the good things you have experienced and avoid the bad ones.
