RelationshipS

We all crave intimacy, need to love and be loved in return. So why do we have much dang trouble doing so?

How did you choose your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband or wife?

What did ya look for?
Besides great eyes and hair. Heh.

Did you take note of some of these indicators of what’s to come?

His or her Politics: (Loony) Liberal or (sane able to reason properly) Conservative?

Her Faith. Was it strong? Is yours? Did that matter to you?

Money, money, money:
Is he reckless, does she save or spend spend spend?

How does he react when under stress?

How well does he communicate? Does she listen when you try to express yourself? Do you feel ignored or discounted?

What seem to be his priorities? Is it always about work, or does “family” and your relationship take first place?

Looks:
Does he take pride in how he looks…ok guys don’t answer that. ha.

Does she stay fit and healthy and care about her appearance?

Word from the sometimes, most of the time, oftentimes wise. Heh

Choose your partner well.
We are attracted to people for all kinds of reasons.

You can be attracted to someone who reminds you of someone in your past, without even being consciously aware of it.

They may shower you with gifts or make you feel special or even…important.

Just remember: Apply the same rules to a future husband/wife, girlfriend or boyfriend as you would a friend.

Examine their personality, values, their overall qualities, and most of all– their relationship with others and with God.

Know your own needs. If you don’t: Find them out.
Your partner can’t always win at the “guessing game”, so try not to put him or her through it.

Always show respect. Your’e a team, and at all times, try to act like one.

Talk, talk and talk some more.

Sorry fellas. Ha.
Explore, don’t assume.

Whatever you do….Do not mistaken physical attraction for..Love.

Sooooooo, what’s the secret sweet friends?

    My true love and I just broke up because although the love was strong, the distance was stronger. But as they say, I’ve loved before and hopefully, I’ll love again. I just think it will be a while.

  5. darcee says:

    The secret? love with your heart wide open. Focus on the good. Treasure the person who loves you. Just my two coppers. Have a great weekend.

  6. Katie says:

    How about a good sense of humor. If you can laugh at the mistakes you both made in the past, and look towards the future with a smile, then you have true love.

    This week’s PhotoHunt Saturday theme is emotion(s). Normally I will just post one photo but I decided that since I haven’t had the time to post any more Disney pics lately I would put several of them up today……

    Mr. Cube and I worked together & were friends before we began to date. It was a mutual feeling of liking each other’s company that after more than a quarter century, still exists. Mr. Cube is not one of those quiet, uncommunicative men and when we’re apart for work, he will call many times just to talk about his day, or the news, etc., and vice versa.

    great advice all around!

  14. Aurora says:

    Definitely a winning, all-male smile, I’d say! Though the faith, sweetness, politics, brain and sense of humor helped as well. What a nice question to ask myself in the middle of a headful of politics and world injustices…thanks, Angel!

    Angel,
    A beautiful posting!

    How did you choose your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband or wife?

    What did ya look for?

    A moral character.

    Sure, raging hormones and sex appeal played a bit part. But when the time came to choose a mate, I chose the one of the two I was dating who had the moral character along the lines with my beliefs. This, of course, included faith.

    Mr. AOW and I are coming up on our 36th wedding anniversary. There have been some bumps in the road, but not any requiring a marriage counselor.

  17. Neil says:

    Excellent questions. I wanted someone who would be a great wife / mother, and I was fortunate to be able to “marry up.”

    My sister chose unwisely, and endured a verbally (and sometimes physically) abusive relationship for nearly 25 years before she finally got out.

    Choose your mates wisely.

    Love your posts and your pictures.

    There’s no accounting for love and what attracts people to one another.

    It’s not always money or looks, although those are right up there with most folks. It’s not always agreeing on the issues, see Mary maitlin and James Carvil on that, sometimes it’s not even compatability, the current high divorce rate proves that.

    Great post, great insights…

    China Offically Overtakes U.S. as World’s Largest Polluter…

    Bet none of the eco-communists will admit to this stunning development.
    The real kicker is that China has an economy that is four times smaller, that’s right, smaller than the U.S. and yet it is producing more pollution!
    How about we stop trading…

    When Did Father`s Day Start?…

    my father gave me a present which I have been able to convey to both of my sons and hopefully they will likewise convey to their children: a great sense of humor….

  24. Gayle says:

    The secret of staying married is to always put the other person first, Angel. When both partners do that, the marriage is always a success. When they don’t, well, they wind up in divorce. Love does not mean never say your sorry. Quite the opposite. If you mess up you apologize. Whoever came up with that “Love means never say your sorry” BS was a moron!

    …..or perhaps a liberal. There isn’t much difference. :)
