The start of some friendships can be elusive. Those butterflies in your stomach morph into moths and you know it as soon as they begin to eat holes in your spirit. But, like a champ, you hold onto that white towel and go back in for another round, another date, another night. Now a bit burdened with wonder, (is it you? is it me?) and a smile on your face; secretly in conflict with the moths in your gut, you begin to question (definitely a deal breaker for those aloof) the change in the flow of things. It seems the logical thing to do before throwing in the towel.??? Responses to questions bring clarity to things we do not understand about one another. It may seem trite or trivial to those who know everything, but some of us prefer to get to know you personally rather than assumingly based on past soured relationships.
Today's comment of the day, again, comes from the Ask YourTango Forums where users are dishing out great advice and asking heartfelt questions. Recently, Larissa told us about a boy who wants to have sex with her but doesn't seem to want the relationship. He keeps pushing her, but Larissa is holding off. What Q has to say in response, we think is a lesson for women everywhere: Here is the clear cut rule on this, and it doesn't matter if he is after you for sex or something else. You have a boundary that you set up, a line that you don't want to cross with him yet. If he is not going to respect your boundaries then he does not deserve to be with you...period. If you aren't ready to sleep with him then don't.
deciding to being exclusive, safe-sex.
finding love..but not finding love?...waiting around..for what?
Just because you love him doesn't mean he has to love you.
Strength where it counts
I love this new show, More To Love. I watch all the Bachelor and Bachelorette shows, and I think this is a GREAT idea that many Americans can relate to. We are not our "past skinny" selves. This Bachelor is HOT!!! Too bad I'm not within his age range. I find him handsome and extremely charming. Some girl will be very lucky to be chosen by him............... T
new love found through blind date..thanks to a dedicated sister & friend..
Sometimes even time and patience aren't enough to work through tough issues, but it's finding someone who is willing to accept those issues and doesn't fault you for them that is important.
