giving it a go, giving in, giving up

How do you know when a potential relationship actually has potential?  Is it simply a matter of giving it a go? Is that about keeping things simple, or low key, or going slow?  Or do you just ''know''?

How do you know when you are making a compromise you probably shouldn't be?  How do you know when the compromise you are making is actually the right decision?  Is it the difference between giving generously and giving in (which sounds defeatist by it's very nature?)

How do you know when it's time to say goodbye?  Do you fight until the bitter end, when the bodies are lying bruised and battered?  Or do you concede gracefully and walk away, knowing you gave your best?  If you make the call sooner rather than later do you describe it as giving up?  Or does giving up come when there's actually nothing left to give?

Shouldn't relationships be easier than this?
