Anything is possible when you’re seeing a woman who sees the best in everyone, and she is willing. She wants to explore, and that matches well up with what I have read and heard one of my gurus state, and that is “loving fully without guarantees.” I like that it will develop more slowly, because there is nothing that is crazy-making about a steady and slower pace. I know that I shouldn’t spend too much time on contrast, but she is so different than previous relationships. I’m lucky.
- She drives to me even when she has had a 10-hour day and her back is sore and compressed.
- She is smart and loves to read and write all kinds of things, but each one of them is thought-provoking or somehow poignant.
- She is sweet, tender and gentle.
- She is funny, and laughs easily and fully. (Her laughter never fails to make me laugh or smile widely.)
- She wants to be with me, and is willing to see what can work out
I know that it is not particularly healthy to contrast women who you’ve been with, but I just did a lot of that this weekend. I rarely had my ex-gf down to my house, and in fact, she would complain about my house all of the time too, as I’m not anal or is mine a newer one. I live in a 50s ranch with a finished basement and the neighborhood has established trees in the front yards, and my floors are hardwoods. I actually love my house so I found that insulting.
She read self-help and new age. She was critical and quick to anger. We stopped laughing. My workout partner and I read and shredded her cards that she gave to me fall through about February of 2012 on Saturday. Even the first few were full of tired and trite phrases and terms of endearment. She is really just all about marketing and taglines. There also were a couple that said stuff like, “I appreciate the things that you’ve given me, and I’m sorry that I can’t lean on you while I’m going through tough times.”
There isn’t much that is similar between these women with the exception that they have been on their own since teenage, and have had a lot of strife throughout their lives. One found a way to embrace joy, and the other found a way to craft a world wherein emotions are kept at bay and people are controlled. I can tell you which one makes me feel like anything is possible.
