I would like to ask a simple question. Why in the age of identity theft would a website ask you you verify age and pictures by a valid government document such as passport and drivers license Better yet why ask for the same info with company letterhead.
I don't care how many more hits I get.....my personal info stays locked up.
Well apparently I'm not as crazy as I thought!!!!!!!!!! Who knew? Apparently as some of you expressed to me either privately or in the blogs my ideals are not necessarily out of touch. Very cool.
So my next question to you is how do you know when you are ready for a relationship? I am not talking about a FWB, but a relationship.
In my comments on the blogs I have been talking about building of the intimate environment between two people, allowing each person to grow both as an individual and as a part of the couple.
To me I really didn't know that I was ready until recently.
I recognized that the many trials in my life, that included ridicule by peers, my cerebral palsy, epilepsy, my cancer scare and yes even my weight, gave me a unique perspective. I think I had to accept each and everyone of those parts and celebrate what they brought to my life and then be open about it
To be ready, I think all you need to be is open, respectful and be able to communicate.
I know honesty will popin as a requirement.....but if you respect someone or are open with someone isn't honesty implied.
I have been reading some of the blogs over the last few days, trying to think of a topic that would at least garner me so responses.
I came on here (this site) to hopefully find a woman who would be my partner. I feel totally out of place and i am not sure why.
I grew up, believing a relationship, no a marriage was about two people growing together, yet being individuals creating an intimate environment where both could be themselves without fear, rejoicing in the ability to share everything, supporting each other so that both grow individually and as a couple There are some extraordinary people on this site. Why do people give up on that dream? Why settle for anything less than the whole package? Why date someone who is married if your goal is to be in a longterm relationship? I have no problem with the idea of sowing the wild oats, for both genders, as long as that is what both want. The idea of Friends with Benefits is a recipe for pain, but again its choice.
I guess my question is are we so sexualized that intimacy is sex and what someone will do for you, or are willing to perform on you is more important than anything else.
I thought in a relationship egos are put at the door, needs are met, people grow and explore in all ways........knowing that you are appreciated for who you are and that both know they are where they belong
Are there people who think as me....or should i just find a straight jacket 2 sizes to small, pop a few pills and let my mind wander aimlessly?
