    Too Often...

    Too often we seek to satisfy before we think, and we give before we can be given to. Such is a woman's life! We are very much goddesses, as the kabbalists might say, because we are selfless most of our natural existence, giving as lovers, giving as mothers, giving as crones, and...

    Very Important.

    Respect, trust and honesty is what any relationship should be based on. It doesn't matter even if it's just a friendship, it still applies, but even more so for romantic relationships.

    "I Believe A Relationship Is Built On Respect And Trust"

    Not just trust in Love relations,

    but also in friendships. My closest friends are those whom I can trust. But not just with my life, I'd trust any non suspicious person with that, but with my secrets, For example, my sexuality. Or the reason why I am deathly terrified of anyone touching my neck. Or why I won't...

    Cheaters

    I have been cheated on more than once. I've learned that the reason I was cheated on is because men want the "best of both worlds," and they think I can only give them one part of that. If anyone actually bothered to stick it out long enough (without cheating), they would have...

    I personally believe any kind of relationship

    is always built on a minimum of respect and trust. If these two and other ingredients are not in place then you have a phony relationship with someone. You may want to rethink your priorities and value system in your relationship with another person.

    Trust

    When a relationship is started, there should be mutual understanding and trust. That is the essence. A man and woman should have mutual respect and trust. They have to understand the other. Many relationships are broken because of misunderstandings and loss of trust.
