This Time I Want It All

Have you ever taken the time to think about your past relationships to realize what exactly went wrong?  In some cases, I can pinpoint the moment I figured out the person wasn’t right for me, yet it was not the moment I ended things.

When we are single and dating, we are collecting data about who we think is a good fit for us.  It wasn’t until I dated a really impatient man when I decided that patience is something I truly like in a man.  Now that I have been ignored by a “really busy” boyfriend, I can say with certainty that I appreciate the man that has balance and makes time for what is important.

You see where I’m going with this?  We may have endured tough times on the dating scene but it wasn’t a complete waste of time.  We should take all that we have learned about ourselves and other people to make the best choices in selecting a mate.

When it is time and the right person comes along, there will be no settling.  There should be no confusion, apprehension, fear, or trepidation. This is why so many of the married people tell us, “You will know” when we meet the one.

I tell myself that when I make the decision to commit, the guy will have it all. Not just partially right for me, but truly right for me. What would be the point, otherwise?

Do you think that settling is necessary to be with someone?  Is it possible for us to find a person that has everything we want?  Can we expect to have it all or is it a fantasy?  How realistic are we in our expectations?

Prof — That’s my bad. I had the wrong code for that one on my formatting cheat sheet:

http://www.karaokebus.tzo.com/blog_formatting.txt

It’s mrgreen — not green.

Corrected now…

However, a child should not (potentially) be made to suffer becuase of my laspe in judgemnent

I wholeheartedly agree with that statement, ans ubfortunatley this happens all too many times. But as Proff says, there are adults out there who are adament about working together for the sake of the child even if those individuals decide to seperate.

@Dream/Proff

Given the evidence (just of people you know) what percentage would you attribute that attitude to? Better than 80?

See me, I’m not willing to take those chances, not on behalf of anyone else.

You know what the percentage is very low in my world also, but there are those few diamonds.

And that’s the attitude to have Dan seriously. You may make bad decisions in life, but we should try not to repeat those.

As a matter of fact I do, Sassy. However, now that I’m a married man, all requests must first go through Mrs. Swiss…. ;-)

You guys are funny. When I post the cheat sheet, no red carpet for me. When i’m swiss post it, confetti falls from the sky. Never cease to amaze me! :lol: :shock: :lol:

Leggs – you know that happens all the time. One person can post something that elicits no response. Someone else can post the same thought (almost word for word) and it’s like manna.

I just consider it a part of the entertainment.

Regarding your cheat sheet comment, I was wondering if you or some of the blog ladies can let us in on some of the tricks of the trade and game that women run on guys. I know its always different, but I have a good amount of them that I have heard but am always ready to learn something new. Thanks!

Do you agree that it is better than it used to be, as it relates to the cheerleading the men get? Hell we had one blogger that had a fan section when he spoke along with the flower girls from coming to america. I think it is the way people are like Melo said.

@SCool ~ you’re absolutely right. It’s funny and had to comment on it. Yes indeed, pure d entertainment!

@Melo, no sweating on my part. It cute!

I’m sure Leggs can elicit responses w/out adding sexual ineundos (sp?).. lol

Leggs…I wrote that one without cracking a smile, but I am happy it made you laugh! Usually I get the first laugh, but it is cute.

@Melo ~ you’re niche seems to revolve around sex, creams and squirts. My one niche I’d rather not run in the hole, although I have at times. I don’t always need to elicit a response! But, thanks.

@i’m swiss, reading Melo’s remark about the sausage has left you with the right feeling….flattered and dirty at the same time!

Of course I do. I’m human.

But like every other fault: I accept the things I cannot change, change the things I can, and pray to know the difference.

What does that do with my sense of humor?
