What I've learned - a guys perspective.
mikeydell posted:
Don't look for someone because you need to feel complete; that goes for both sexes. Make sure each of you is truly over your exes - at least 1 year apart for every 5 married. Know each other very well before even thinking about sex. Expect the unexpected. Guys, compliment your lady when you first see her each day. Don't over compliment, it's sounds phony after a while. Be spontaneous. Pay attention to everything! Communicate often and communicate well. Don't say 'I love you' if you don't mean it! Expect your heart to be broken, and if it's really meant to be then it will.

Well put mike! I agree! And from a female's perspective,,,Don't look for a guy to take care of you. Learn to take care of yourself first. As the saying goes, learn to need them because you love them,,, don't love them because you need them. Not only get to know them well before moving to the next level, but don't go in for sex,,,,go for 'making love', there's a difference. Other than that, what mikey said!

Thanks Vicki, I'm glad I got most of it correct. And you hit the nail right on the head as well!

Now if someone would only read and offer a comment on my piece in the DISCUSSION area I would really appreciate it. I am trying to gain some insight as to what really happened and why. It seems so very surreal!
