    I'm not trying to make light of the guys on here that are going through hard times in their relationships... but I'm so bummed that so many people are in such dire straits with their partners.

    I have one very good argument to the contrary but being single isn't so bad... not at this... exact.... moment.

    Very poignant video.

    I'm so tired of hearing all the gripes of the couples that I know. I never want to have a relationship like that..........again. There is a first time when you're in a relationship and stay there because you think it is the right thing to do, and everything will work out. Sadly, if one person doesn't really care about the relationship or puts no effort into making it better, to stay is a waste of time. I believe in forever, but sometimes you just have to get out of the relationship, for your friends sake because they are tired of hearing about it!

    I believe this past year has been hard on everyone. With loss of jobs, a spiraling economy, and all the issues surrounding it - people were very stressed. A lot of relationships have ended, mine included, but with this new year 2010 comes a positive change and a greater hope for better lives. I think people will re-evaluate their lives this year and understand and realize who and what is most important to them. Hopefully the relationships that will begin this year will thrive and be long lasting as both people will know what it is they want and need from each other. Building a solid foundation to work with based on trust and honesty with communication being the key! We all want happiness - here's hoping everyone will find it this year in their lives, love and work. icon_biggrin.gif

    Excellent perspective! Improving personal relationships and making better connections is on the top of my "list of things to do" for 2010. In fact, I'm off to a running start. Already I learned what I want is all around me. All I had to do was get off my spoiled lazy ass and reach out for it. I'm very optimistic that better things are going to happen this year.

    I think secret crushes are extremely endearingicon_smile.gif

    Your sentiments are all so very kind. I just write about how I feel or see things. I am learning that life is too short not to be and do all you can, so this year it is important for me to try new things. I am seeing with "new eyes" so to speak. People are in our lives for many important reasons - I am very thankful for the many friends I have, and the ones I have made here on RJ. I am a very intuitive person, and I have a strong belief in the positive. Even though I may doubt myself sometimes I do try to be the kind of person I would like to see others be. To answer your question: my secret RJ crush has been very inspiring to me - he is someone I admire so much - someone who I feel always brings out the very best in me - and someone who I hope I may one day inspire as well. He brought the music back into my life and for that I am very grateful. He is a gift, a treasure and a blessing! icon_smile.gif
