Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 501 People

    Have been feeling connected by reading many

    posts from people living in marriages similar to my own. At the same time I have been troubled by the pain and loneliness of so many young people. Seems the more ways we have available to connect, the greater the problem of de-sensitivity is becoming. I think I'll just blame it...

    There has to be a connection

    Without communication there's no relationship.

    Without respect there's no love. Without trust there's no reason to continue. The Love cycle so connection is really matters.
