Relationship! What is That?

"Sometimes your could eat them up.  Sometimes you wish you had."

Friendship is a no doubt a key ingredient, but there has to be more....sooo much more....a promise to care for your heart...a promise to go that extra mile when what you want to do is hit the door. I really don't know how to describe that certain extra.

My advice from what I've learned the hard way after all these years. Be careful. Take your time. Choose wisely. Marriage can be the “Hangover” after a really good party.

Most Important: Talk to each other. Don't hold it in or hide from problems thinking they will go away.                                                     They  just build  up until the damn breaks....

                            Early in the relationship establish how you will handle disagreements. They will come...

When you have a problem:

STOP         Stop thinking about what you are going to say next. Stop thinking about what you are going to say            next!

LOOK         Look directly into your partners eyes. Let them know they have your full attention. Make sure they know                       you are hearing them.

LISTEN!    Listen with your head and listen with your heart . Don't participate if the other person isn't doing the same                     thing. It does no good!
