Honestly, I don’t believe in Love, well Intimate love anyway.
But I do believe in loving ourselves, and those close to us.
I have been “In Love” Intimately, once in my life.
My first and only Girlfriend “Claire Baire.”
We met at age 4, early February 1970, and dated until mid 1979.
Those almost 10 years were the best ever for me.
To read more about her, please check out my recent blog:
Many people feel when are dating, an intimate relationship must be mandatory very quickly.
Honestly, I would not get intimate with someone until we have reached our 1st Anniversary, even then, there must be an Agreed, Written, Signed Agreement.
I also demand Photographic Identification, a Legally Witnessed Copy of their Birth Certificate, Passport, Police Check and Working With Children Check Card.
You may think I’m being too harsh, but I have Trust Issues.
Too many people mistake
Especially many males.
If more males started respecting women, or their partner, depending on their orientation, then there might be more respect returned.
Over the years, I’ve been subjected to misunderstandings by others, usually males, because they have gutter minds, everyone else does.
Honestly, it is very hard for me to be open and honest with people, because in the past, when I have been, it has been used against me.
Therefore, being selective on what I reveal and when I reveal is best.
I will be honest and say, Love, well I thought it was, has made me do stupid things in the past.
This is why I keep potential partners at arms length.
I would like to offer this advice to everyone:
When you start dating someone new, always be careful, but demand a written signed agreement.
Anyone who refuses to, that’s a RED Flag.
