My goal, as a good dad, is to be available emotionally and physically to my kids all the time. They know where I stand. I've never bad-mouthed their mom. And as they continue to grow and mature into adults, I'm back to having an equal opportunity to be with them.
If my friend is staying in the "dating" and "fooling around" mode, he's not going to gain any long-term insights.
When you aspire too much for someone too beautiful you might be getting off track for what’s important in your life.
Crave them when they are not with you. Enjoy and savor them when they are with you. And feel the complete fullness of life when you have been satiated by them.
If you've got time ahead, and you're committed to the partnership, you have plenty of time to get the details right, if you stay on the path toward togetherness and building the "WE."
If Bumble is successful you stay hopeful and keep paying them for the extras. If you are successful a partner will take you offline off their quota.
When you are waiting for the other person to change (at any stage of a relationship or marriage) it might be time for you to move on.
If you want to find a lifetime partner, you're going to have to do whatever it takes to embrace your own inner loveliness.
