Disappointment

I met someone a couple of months ago and everything started off good.  We would hang out, talk on the phone almost every night and sometimes in the mornings too.  Then talking on the phone in the morning turned into a good morning text message which I still found to be a nice gesture. 

Over time I started to notice that the phone calls at night gradually disappeared and the almost every morning text messages became non-existent.  So, I decided to cut him off and although this is going to sound petty and juvenile...if he wasn't going to text me then I wasn't going to text him.  I started to feel like he wanted me to chase him and that is something that I simply do not do.

Yes, I'm Still Obsessed!

I am obsessed with the idea of getting married.  This is a borderline addiction.  I guess, it didn't help my obsession any when the first two weeks in September I attended two weddings back to back.  Although I am always happy to see two people be united in holy matrimony, I can't help but ask myself, why not me? 

I have wanted to get married for a long time.  I thought I was on the right track until July 31st of this year it all got derailed.  My boyfriend of three years and I broke up.  Now I have to start all over again.  Single yet again.

Meet The Parents

It is natural that when two people are in a committed relationship that they both start to ponder about what the next steps will be.  Usually one of the first of many steps is meeting the parents.  Meeting the parents in a lot of ways can make or break a relationship.  If the parents meet the mate and don't like them it can put a strain on the relationship.  Or maybe the mate doesn't have the greatest relationship with their parents and it can cause the other half to question the future of them being a couple.  On the bright side a persons parents could meet their mate and love them which can cause an easier progression of the relationship.

Leave Those Bags In The Past

If you have ever been in multiple bad relationships throughout your life and allow for the results of those messy relationships to transfer over into a new relationship then you are carrying around baggage.   

People hurt people, that is a fact of life and that is a fact of relationships.  Don't let yesterday's rain ruin today's sunshine.  Bad relationships happen, but you cannot make the new person in your life suffer for the mistakes others committed.  You harm yourself and potentially can throw away any hope of having a decent, healthy relationship.  Time to leave those bags in the past.

When To Call It Quits

Before my current relationship I was with someone for about eight months and I felt like I was in love with him, but the longer the relationship went on I started to notice that we would have the same arguments over and over again.  I got tired of feeling like my words were falling on deaf ears so I made the difficult and necessary decision to end the relationship.  I knew internally that this relationship would only go in circles and that he was not going to change.  I put time and effort into this relationship for months and I admit that I could have stayed with him, but I would not have been happy.

Snooping

To snoop or not to snoop...that is the question.  Snooping refers to without someone's consent or knowledge, in secret going through the personal possessions i.e. phone or e-mail because one partner  feels that the other partner is being distrustful.

Interfaith Relationships: My Opinion On The Subject

An interfaith relationship is defined as two partners that have different religious beliefs.  I did some research today on the subject and I must admit the Internet was very optimistic that an interfaith relationship could work and suggested ways in which two people with separate religious beliefs could find ways to cohabitate.

Romantic Movie Delusion

Romantic movies can sometimes leave a person with a false sense of how relationships should actually work.  Yes everyone deserves their happily ever after, but that does not mean that there will never be problems in the relationship.  We are human beings and although two people are compatible that does not always mean that two people are going to share the same belief or opinion.  I am a firm believer that if a person says that they never argue with their significant other then either that person is lying or someone in the relationship is going along without voicing opposition.

Soul Mates: Do You Believe?

Soul mate is a term that I have heard often, but not a topic that I have ever given too much thought to this subject.  Now that I am in a serious relationship I ponder as to whether or not a person can actually have a soul mate.  A person that they are destined to be with.  I believe that my boyfriend is my soul mate and I am his so I guess yes I do believe that some people have soul mates.
