I had experienced several relationships before meeting my current boyfriend that were marked by this kind of passion and chemistry but lacked a solid foundation.I was always left having this feeling in the midst of it like, “this is exciting now but it isn’t sustainable.” And I was right. Honestly when my current boyfriend came along…I almost let him pass me by because quite honestly we didn’t have that crazy chemistry or romance right away that I had been conditioned to believe was necessary and that I had experienced in other relationships more immediately. It might have taken a few months for us to experience the romance and chemistry (mostly due to timing for both of us).And all of those qualities are directly influenced by how you communicate.
And then upon further research I found one study which proved exactly that by using a new computer algorithm which measures vocal tone and can predict relationship success with nearly 79 percent accuracy. But I believe the depth and honesty of your communication takes it a step further.
Any good relationship is built off of honesty, trust, and respect.
There were things that I held onto dearly and that I stood for my entire life in relationships such as purity, strength, mutual support, honor, and partnership that I began to ever so reluctantly let got of once I hit my 30’s. And then about nine months ago I met someone who quite honestly redeemed my view of relationships and men. To remind any of you single women (and men) out there who need the encouragement that you are worthy of someone who will be an example to you of love, honor, faithfulness, self-control, support, and belief.
And who proved to me that in fact my standards were never too high. For you ladies, you are worthy of a man who will pursue you for you and not just what he can get from you.
We live in a day and age where dating has become more of a sport than a mature interaction between two adults in search of a relationship that is raw, real, and lasting.
As a 32 year old unmarried woman living in LA, I’ve experienced my fair share of dating games, but I’ve also experienced some real, honest relationships that were marked by some pretty clear red flags that I struggled from time to time to see and ultimately walk away from.The trend is people dating and eventually marrying ultimately for physical chemistry, shallow connections, looks, and status.But what happens when the fireworks die down, the looks fade, and the thrill wears off? And at worst, another divorce statistic to add to the ever increasing number.A man who doesn’t have time for games but communicates his feelings and pursues you intentionally. I’ve heard one too many stories recently from friends who have found themselves lost in a relationship where they feel anxious, troubled, broken, unsupported, fearful, used, and under-valued.If you find yourself in a relationship like that, it might be time to walk away.My guess is that most single adults out there reading this are not strangers to these experiences.
