    Do you like to fix relationships (not just romantic relationships or sexual relationships) that went sour?

    Do you feel comfortable healing past relationships with people or do you throw people away easily?

    It depends if the mending requires a Band aide or Gauze!

    I contacted two "friends" over two months ago. Recently both of them left messages on my machine or emailed wanting to do something, both saying "I am so bad at getting back to people" or "Things have been so hectic so sorry I have not gotten back to you."

    I ignored both of them and am moving on.

    I like to try and fix other peoples relationships.
    Not my own, though, I'm too fucked up for that.

    I'm not someone that throws away relationships easily.. friendships, etc.

    Interestingly enough, I have a former gay friend in Wichita, that has made an effort to contact me to "reconnect", to start our friendship again. I actually talked about him in a thread here about 1.5 years ago over some of his behavior. I'm happy to listen... the issues weren't bad enough to lose a friend over.

    I always say if someone takes the initiative to sooth bad feelings, hear them out.

    And that's exactly how I feel is right. If they are going to care enoguh to apologize or listen to you if you weren't in the right then that's probably someone that is good to have in your life.

    Rarely. I figure that if you give people enough chances to treat you with respect and they choose not to, then they've shown you their true colors, and later attempts at mending fences won't work.

    Just thought I should add, "I'm so bad at getting back to people" is the story of my life icon_rolleyes.gif

    Anyway, to answer the question, I'll always forgive and forget and aim to heal broken relathionships to a point.

    If you push me beyond that point, I will cut you off so severely you'll feel like you lost a limb!

    Sometimes you have to let go and realize that you don't have control over everybody or everything and no mater how badly you want to fix a past relationship (boyfriend, business partner, friend etc.) it won't happen unless the other person is open to it.

    But I'm always open to someone making a gesture of reconcilliation and will respond but most people don't want to spend the time and give up too easily. They need to get home and watch Desperate Housewives.
