Would we all be better if relationships were more varied, If there were more options? So, to give you some context, I have been watching this show on TLC called ‘Seeking Sister Wives’ this is following on from my long standing fascination with ‘My 4 Wives’ (Kody Brown – YouTube tells me not all is… Continue reading Is it actually the fault of society that I have a terrible relationship track record?!
I apologise again for my continued absence. I am finding it hard to write, or to sleep or to do anything really. (Typically – I can eat though and drink wine, much to the detriment of my waistline – I wish I used stress to get thin like any normal person) I spend so much… Continue reading Just because it’s different
When you are in a relationship what is the acceptable level of maintained privacy? By this, I mean do you as an individual give away your right to any level of privacy the moment you enter into any kind of exclusive relationship? Is it just not ok to keep some things to yourself? I would like to… Continue reading Is there such thing as individual privacy in relationships?
Why is it, in relationships it’s like one extreme or another. For example, you either have love. Or you don’t. You can try and hide from it, you can use different expression of hope and mutual adoration. But essentially, it’s either love or it’s not. Or is it? I have learned to know, this is a… Continue reading It’s this or that. But never both. (relationships)
I’ve been wondering for a while, when you meet someone new how long is long enough to know if it’s love or not? Is there a certain amount of time that when that’s passed you just know it’s never going to be that kind of relationship? I’ve read a few posts lately ( forgive me… Continue reading Is there a time limit to love?
I read a post earlier today about life pushing and pulling in a range of different directions. It seems to me that there are a million tiny things that always need attention. We have to do our best to juggle them. In my experience, the success of this juggling varies significantly over time and circumstance.… Continue reading My badly balanced act
The trouble with trust is that it is often so easily broken. Once it is, it is almost impossible to get it back. It might just be a one time thing, it might have been broken with the kindest of intentions, but once the damage is done, that is when doubt creeps in. Once that doubt… Continue reading Putting your trust in trust…
‘I don’t want to make you any promises when I don’t know what is going to happen’ We’ve all heard this line. It is always said with a good intention. But for some reason it absolutely has the ability to make me a little crazy. It’s because I hate the rational, reasonable approach to relationships.… Continue reading Embracing the what if
A sudden, dramatic, and important discovery or development? I think I might have had one of these today. Though I am not sure it was actually sudden, only the realisation of it was. The issue has been there for quite sometime. But I stupidly ignored it, I parked it in ‘insignificant’ I figured I could… Continue reading I’m just not enough ( to love)
Silence. I hate silence. More than that, I hate the way that silence is used as a weapon in relationships. There is nothing more painful or hurtful in my experience. I don’t know when things get so bad that there is absolutely nothing to say. Like, all of the good stuff disappears in an instant… Continue reading It’s a weapon
