Some of the most significant messages people

deliver to one another often come in just three

words. When spoken or conveyed, those statements

have the power to forge new friendships, deepen

old ones and restore relationships that have

cooled.

Sometimes we close our eyes and just listen to the echoes of our hearts. We all fall in love and there are times when we love so much that we love ourselves in our own emotions. More often than not, we wonder why there are love that grows, and love that grows cold. We would start to search for answers and try to find where love has gone wrong. But in the end, we find ourselves where we started for we cannot question love when it ha its reasons. Love will always be as it always has been…silent, mysterious and deeply profound.

There were two hearts who met in a dance. That moment was magical. There was a sweet song playing, there was harmony and soon love in the air. They fell in love and they start building castles in their dreams and promised forever will all certainty. But, somewhere in the midst of the fun, they got lost in the dance, something went wrong but they can never do anything. They were just drifting away, their fortress falling apart. There were so many questions, but no one had an answer.

“I don’t understand your hesitation. You say that you love me but you don’t want to go a step further in our relationship.

What’s wrong? If you really loved me, you would climb that step.”

Popular culture makes us believe that Love conquers all. We have all been exposed, as children, to a story or two, where there is a Princess and her Prince Charming who are confident that with only the strength of their love they will live happily ever after.

That belief takes roots in our heads and develops undesirable weeds. Naively, it’s tinting our decisions when choosing a partner.

Generally, society make us think that being single is being doomed or, an unwanted situation for a low self esteem nerd, or judge you with “you-must-have-a-problem” label if you are not in a relationship.

We imagine that we are automatically miserable if we hop into single hood.

Think again!

  • When he starts picking you over his friends. He will spend a quiet Friday night with you instead of playing poker or going for a drink only with his friends.
  • When he seems to be overjoyed when he meets her and when he spends time with her. The man is in love.
  • When he gradually welcomes her feminine stuff in his house; her special soap in the bathroom, her earrings in the bedroom and her tampons under the sink. Read the rest of this entry »

Breaking up.

The End.

The journey is over.

You feel rejected.

Hopeless.

You don’t want to go back in the jungle again.

You may even have that dread feeling of failure.

Suddenly, all the love songs at the radio seemed to have been written for you. You want to stay in bed. Shut all the doors and the windows. Bring the kids to your relatives for a while.

You don’t feel like talking to anybody now. You swear to yourself that you will never get involved with someone again, half believing it.

“Men are all the same.  Stop looking for Prince Charming, Dreamer!” 

 “We just can’t commit to one person!  I Loooove Women!”

 “I can’t help it!  Women want me!” 

“I almost went with this co-worker of mine years ago, and I feel some kind of regret today that I haven’t done it…”

 “Caroline, I have an active sex life with my girlfriend.  I look around because of the thrill of the chase!!!”

I hear this all the time……  I am sure that you have heard this once also.  It is frightening.  Maybe my actual boyfriend has been unfaithful and I just don’t know about it or I didn’t see the signs… or didn’t want to see the signs.

This is a common concern in our society for single people of any age; how to make contact with someone that we like on a soft matter without being forward.

The truth of the matter is that we have the opportunity to meet that special person everyday; at the bus station, at the grocery store, at church, at a class, at the gym, at the coffee shop, at the library.

The other day, I was with my sweet love when my sister called. She was in a bad mood because she was babysitting my cat (I was out of town) and my cat had made a mess in her sofa. I was feeling guilty about that, so I went in the bedroom to think it over in silence.

After a while, my sweet love joined me and the first thing he said was :

‘’I can see this situation is bothering you, isn’t it?’’

In that moment, I thought he was the greatest boyfriend ever. I felt understood and comforted. I was in a better disposition to be the best partner that I could be for him.

Then I realized that he was talking the same language of love as mine. I am a Visual and I understand better when we communicate with me in visual ways. He used the word ‘’see’’.

I am certain that the Auditory and Feeling people out there don’t fully understand the impact on me, however, Visuals out there, I am sure, understand how I must have felt.

Having the same communication style or using the same communication style that your partner is sensitive to, greatly avoids missed connections, unnecessary challenges and increase intimacy by reducing the events of resentment.
