  1. The last paragraph – definitely true. As for Sex and the City the Movie 2 – too unbelievably contrived to mean much of anything. I’m of course referring to Carrie suddenly meeting up with Aidan in Dubai, of all places. (or was it Abu Dhabi, or Yabba Dhabba Dhu?) I basically feel that the older one gets, the less one expects a Disneyesque fairy tale ending. Note too that these stories always end before the lovers start having bay-bees!

    • Of course SITC is contrived – it’s a modern fairy tale!. And hey, babies are their own dynamic. Rebellious teenager stress is one thing, but don’t blame the little buggers for the stress they add to the dynamic – it’s not their fault.

  2. Well, you and I have discussed this before, and you know that I don’t even like the term soul mate, that I think we choose from the field around us, and that there would be both advantages and obstacles with any choice we make. At least we *hope* for the advantages, but the obstacles will be there for sure. We can just hope that our own rough edges and our partner’s rough edges sand each other smooth instead of scrape each other raw.

      I really like that.

  3. I’ve always liked the comment “true love isn’t gazing longingly into one anothers eyes. It is looking outward toward the same point in the horizon together”.

  4. I’ve got one of the best relationships in the world, and it was that way pretty much from the start. We won’t talk about all the relationships before this one, except, I will tell you this; I learned a lot in all those other ones, and the most important thing I learned was that I didn’t know a damn thing about how to love another person. Sherry came along, and I realized it was a two way street; I didn’t know what it was like to be loved. It was like someone turned a switch on inside my heart, and in leaps and bounds, I found out that no matter how much I loved this woman, she seemed always a step ahead of me. We have been out-loving each other ever since. it’s obviously more complicated than that, but on the other hand it’s simple as hell.
    Yep, we’re on the same wave length,Raivenne. Great minds, and all that! You’ve written some thought-provoking good stuff here, my friend.
