The phrase "X Marks The Spot" typically is associated with finding buried treasure or something so magical that you'd work hard and dig until you discover this coveted gem. Relationships seemingly have that same mantra; when you find someone you really connect with, you want to see it play out, work diligently to form that initial bond and exude optimism as it relates to where this might eventually go.
The "X" certainly can be associated with the aforementioned feelings, but there's another "X" that could prove to be difficult and equally pivotal in where this early in the relationship, only you have to add an "E" in front of that "X."
