50% Americans divorce in 1st marriage. Another 30% -40% divorce in 2nd marriage. I guess those could be benefit learning from you what a relationship should be about. There's no single formula for a relationship.
Thank you for illustrating my point, because a lot of these marriages are based on convenience, security, materialistic needs and social status, instead of the more important factors like personality and love, which is exactly why I was trying to tell you that you can't ever hope to buy a woman's heart. Ofcourse you should continue to ignore her feelings completely, and just pretend to be happily married, because I'm the naive and young guy who never wants to listen, right?
I am glad that most of you don't agree with my arguments. Because most people know the common sense about what a relationship should be, and look at the statistics of divorce. So, something different from the common sense may work, don't you think?
You couldn't be more wrong, because that 'something different' is exactly what makes most of those marriages and relationships fail in the first place. Ofcourse there's no single formula for any relationship, because we're talking about people here, but you simply can't ever ignore feelings when it comes to relationships.
I didn't mean a question. I meant an affirmation in interrogative form. The kind that politicians want to use.
It's okay to make mistakes, really.
Great advice. Thanks. Last night there was a party next door. The smell of BBQ and perfumes mixed together coming from my neighbor's backyard was so unique. I will do that some time.
Well, a little effort doesn't hurt anyone, does it?
I will take the word of those who I know who have been together for 30-50 years and have been mostly happy. They know far more than young people on the internet about what true love is.
To me true love means you want the woman you like to be happy, wether she chooses to be with you or decides to try her luck with someone else. (I guess I'm not really the jealous or possessive type.) I think you should celebrate life with someone you really like, for as long as it lasts, and treasure each moment you have together. True love? It's the silence in between the notes which actually makes the music.
Sure you cannot force someone who is unwilling but at the same time it requires work from both sides...it is not some magical event like most women and a lot of naive young guys would want it to be.
I'm not the daddy type, sorry. I want to help people, have fun with people and enjoy my life and do it my way. I know a lot of people would call that immature or even wrong, but I can't help I feel that way. Think of me what you will, but atleast I'm not cheating, hurting, decieving, or even lying about it, am I? I don't think there's something to be happy about when you feel trapped in a relationship, but ofcourse some people really are happy with their relationship. Which is good!
