    On another dating site I saw this post in someone's Journal not naming the person, but identifying herself. one of the sweeting things I have ever seen!
    The person she is talking to and her sound like two of the nicest, most sincere people ever! I would be honored to be friends with them and the luckiest man on earth to have a lover like either of them.

    "I wish I could take away your rain. You have always been there for me and many others. You are a knight who hides his shining armor. Never asking anything from anyone, but willing to give the shirt off your back. Protecting those who can't protect themselves. You are wise and humble, and shun attention when it's drawn to your good deeds. You are the most amazing person I have ever met, and could never find another friend that could even compare.
    The people around you get caught up in their lives and forget that sometimes even you need help. Yes, even you! I know you are still heartbroken, I know you are lonely. You don't talk about it but I can see. Your eyes give you away, and turn silver when you are down. I wish I could help you make them bright blue again. For all you have given me, and all the times I cried on your shoulder. For all the times you have come in the middle of the night to fix my broken down car. For all the times you had my back when noone else would. For knowing when I needed a hug.
    I hope you find someone who will make you happy on here. I hope that it's someone that deserves it.  I hope they don't break your heart, beacause it would break mine as well."

    Truly unselfish and beautiful icon_smile.gif

    It is a beautiful writing, however, not in the way others may see it.
    According to the writer, this guy doesn't ask for help, doesn't know how to ask for help and doesnt know how to show his feelings. The writer sees this lack of personal reveal as noble or strong. I disagree.
    While this testament to the
    unnamed person is grand, and I can see the attraction to this person, it shows a person who is unentitled to share his pain with others and, often times, in our culture, this is considernobs strength and/or an enlightened state of being.

    Yes, the writing is beautiful and the person mentioned seems to take better care of others than their own self. The writing has compassion in every line. To me, compassion is noting the suffering of others and wanting that suffering to end. Compassion is different than kindness; compassion acknowledges the pain. The writer is acknowledging how much pain the other person endures to be a friend to others. This, for me, is what is beautiful in the writing.

    Thank you for all your points of view... I was truly moved and had tears reading the original journal.
    TonyD you make a thought provoking point, but I still think the target man is a good human being and probably would share his pain with someone he was in love with.

    Too often in our society, the "helpers" the truly compassionate, kind and caring people are themselves in need of such care.
