Do you states your desires in a new relationship in the beginning or in time?

I feel a person can only be accountable for what they know. So if I share my likes and dislikes a person can not say they don't know. Do you think this action should take place in the beginning of the relationship or as time goes on? I thought, when you first meet someone isn't talking about your likes and dislikes apart of getting to know someone? So why does it seem like rocket science as the relationship progressives. Is it me or has anyone experienced this?

It depends on a lot of things. For some people it literally IS rocket science. Some people are extremely introverted by nature or grew up in an environment where open communication wasn't encouraged. And a little discouragement and lack of trust makes it just that much harder. It's better if it happens at the beginning, of course, but sometimes people figure things out as they're going along. Or never figure it out.
