    Games why. Why love games.

    Love is love. Proof can be hunted by talks. Communication. Compromise. Reciprocation. And a chat on the review of steps seen.

    Relationship Games

    I think relationships are not meant to be played. It's something we need to nurture and understand, we capture each moment when we talk or say "hi" with pleasure and seriousness. I don't understand why others would think relationships are meant to be a joke.

    Doesn't Work On Me

    No matter what the relationship is . . . I don't play stupid head games. Doesn't work on me. Frustrates the hell out of people but I won't bite. You want to deal with me be straight up . . . if not you'll only get frustrated and ignored.  No more head games . . . .

    Nope I'm Not That Petty

    If I come across a guy that does, I try to tell him I don't appreciate it and if he refuses to stop, I just make myself unavailable to him. I have better things to do than try to keep a man like that amused. I am getting better at recognizing some of the games men like to play...

    Like I Never Learned Anything

    I offered to not contact her on her vacation so that she could focus on her husband. I told her if she took me up on that, I would assume that was the end of the relationship. So she took me up on it, except she told me how anxious that made her feel, knowing she loved me...
