Sometimes I think the “normal” people are just people you don’t know well enough yet. We talked about relationships with parents, and how many girls have “daddy issues.” I don’t have dad issues. My parents married at a young age, and have a successful marriage. However, neither Jessie or I would have talked about this stuff so soon without having the therapist as a soundboard. I spent five years seeing a therapist, so this isn’t strange to me.
I wonder if that is part of the reason I am always trying to find the right person and why I feel like such failure when a relationship doesn’t work out. Jessie is currently in therapy, so it’s all good with her too.
With some people, there will always be sexual attraction, but you don’t have to always go there with them.The likelihood that at least one party is drawn to the other sexually is very high, regardless of whether or not anything ever comes of it.This is the reason jealousy and infidelity exists; we are not wired to be a monogamous species.” “With my line of work, I come into contact with beautiful women all the time.Women tend to be more relational than men and so are more inclined toward deepening the relationship and moving toward marital commitment.Thus they are more likely to be disappointed when the friendship doesn’t “go” anywhere.
