It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Relationship advice?

Why is it that so many younger (in their 20s, generally) people always ask me for relationship advice?

It's no secret that I'm on my third marriage. I'm sure no expert when it comes to making relationships last.

It's just weird! :P

Borderline symptom of the day: confusedconfused

I get that too and I'm the one who had the marriage from hell. I think they suppose cause you made the comittment work (even for a little while) that puts you heads up over them?

No, but you're an expert on what makes a relationship fall apart. Congratulations, you're a bad example!

I was gonna say..."What Not To Do™" is as much an information source as any other. ;)


I was gonna say this, too. I was beaten to it. :-P

My assumption is that you have the same skill I have. You can listen without judgment. Lord only knows why people tell me the stuff that they do, I honestly don't get it. I am sure its not because of my @ either. *shakes head*

Truly listening is a skill that most folks don't have.

*I* don't have that skill. I'm a selfish git!

Oh you are a bitch all right, but we love you for it :P

On the other hand, you're in a happy relationship now, with good familial relationships with your children (both biological and adoptive). A lot of people can't say things like that. So maybe you ARE a good example - or maybe "just" a better one than the people who are asking you otherwise have.
