Are you.... ?

Postby Dallas » Sun Apr 30, 2006 9:06 pm

The board sure is slow... and there is no motives in this topic... just trying to get someone off their shy spot and see if I can get some dialog started here. :wink:

So... I'll start by asking a few questions, and please feel free to jump in and share what it's like for you!!!

Are you single? Are you in a relationship? Are relationships tough for you? Are relationships pretty easy for you? If you're single... and contemplating the possibility of a new relationship... what would you be looking for? Are there certain things that you would want or expect? Are there certain things your looking for? Are there certain things you want to avoid?

What would the ideal person be like for you?

Are you open or looking to meet someone?

Do you want to meet someone and see where it goes from there?

These are only questions... and I hope you'll feel open to sharing!!!

If no one is interested in sharing... I'll come up with some different questions... maybe... like... are you in a relationship and trying to get out of it? :wink:

Let's talk!!!

Just a question for you Zip,

I've noticed that you end all your messages now, with "teach only love." Perhaps, someday you'll elaborate on what that means to you.

I guess, that since I consider myself as a student, rather than as one who teaches anybody anything... I haven't been able to relate much to it. And, that's okay. Not whining or anything. There's a lot of things that I don't relate to or identify with. There are probably many people who do relate and identify, and understand what it means to "teach only love."

Now, if you used something like... "give only love" I could probably figure that one out! That would be something that I could use.

Not asking or suggesting you change anything... just curious what "teach only love" means to you, and maybe and explanation of how someone like me might be able to use it. ????

I'm looking for the perfect man that cooks and cleans, and mows etc., etc. while I set around working my program of recovery eating bon bons..LMAO only joking really. :twisted: actually I'd be thrilled to have that cinderella life girls were raised on, what liars our moms were :lol: , but since I'm way to critical of men I don't see that happening in the near future. maybe someday when I'm all grown up. I've seen some really bad examples lately of relationships, so I'll hang out with my cats and friends till I'm grown up enough, to not be expecting perfection from them or me..
God Bless everyone, Kay :D

new to step 12 forum and afraid of relationships.

Postby cleoski » Mon May 15, 2006 3:35 am

Hello to all,
I am new here and want to say how ha ppy I am to have found step 12. I think what really got me to register were the refrences to Clancy I.
I listen to many of his tapes and learn a lot from him. Now , as far as the subject goes, well I really need help there. You guys want to know how I deal with relationship problems, particually ones with the opposite sex? I stay out of them, thats how. sad, I know but it seems that they drain the life out of me. What is really scary is that after almost six years of sobriety I have only been in one relationship. (it lasted a whole six weeks and I found myself wanting out after two) To be honest this scares me, I wonder if I will ever be the, quote normal person. You know, wife, kids, house,etc. I thik I have relationship issues. I am starting yet another fourth step, maybe I will learn something there. thanks for the fourthsstep guide. I think this will be the most informing one yet.
Looking forward to posting and learning from you all,
Tony
