Hey.....

here is a serious question......


I'm in a little doubt




is it real?
does love exist?
It's just because i have seen so many things gone bad
(but I believe that's just becasue they didn't know how to make it work, make it last)

But is it real?
Or is love just a word


Because I want a relatioinship, and essentially I want to be in love. I think I am, but.... I have a lot of doubt.....

Because I know I can love
and I can love forever, I know I can do that
but .....
there are many who
oppose that, or oppose me in that belief........


I don't know what my exact question is....
*sigh*

Love is real. Love is not easy to find.

It is easy to give. True love looks for nothing in return. And receiving true love comes with no expectation.

When I was looking, I never found it. When I stopped looking, it appeared right before me.



All I can do is pray that God will put the right person in your life.

I agree with you on a humankind level.

I have a hard time relating that to an intimate relationship. If the other person doesn't return what you want to give to them in a two person relationship - are you supposed to just truly love them and give? Or should you move on to find someone that will love you back mutually?

I think that both parties in a two person relationship can't help but expect the security of knowing that the other person is committed to the same love.

I hope that made sense.

I agree 100% - for an intimate relationship, it must develop with a degree of mutuality that gives both parties the security of knowing that they are loved.

Given the sensitive nature of intimacy, I think it's best to save till the other aspects of love have grown.

NBC, you're Interland's version of Carrie Bradshaw....

Everything you've written makes so much sense and smoothes the playing field for the sexes...you should write a book. We're in our 16th year of our relationship/marriage....everything you've written has touched our lives in the past.

If you were on Ebay, I'd give you a positive feedback!

It's just so strange, because there is someone, who, on a mature level, there are tremendous amounts of feelings for in my life. More than just emotion or anything like that


But we can't be together now for various circumstances


I'm so worried that because we found each other so soon in life, it would discourage us from actually being together. This is the kind of girl I would marry.... but at the same time, it is bold for me to make such a statement when we are so young.

But that is honestly how I feel.


But, maybe if it's "meant to be", then I don't need to worry about loosing her. Not that I feel like I'm loosing her, but, you know how I mean.






and one last thing

what does this mean to you: "when you are in love, you only see the eyes"

it sort of makes sense to me, butI would like to hear others take on it.





As always,
supreme gratitude.

So, if you agree with me - please explain your statement of true love because if you agree with me, it seems to be contradictory.

Do you mean that in order to have true love all other aspects of love have grown and that is the only way that true love is achieved?

What are the most important values you want to instill in your children? What kind of people do you want them to be?

And I *think* you have boys and girls-if so, do you feel you parent them differently because of their gender, or is it more just because they are different as people?
