How will I know?

Whitney Houston, may she rest in peace, sang the music that many of us grew up on. Her songs are the soundtracks to my first love, first heartbreak, first restraining order (don’t ask) – and her voice got me through a lot of tough times.

I remember going through those emotions of being uncertain about a guy. I think looking back, that is exactly how he wanted it – uncertain. Have you ever fallen for someone who was not forthcoming about how they felt about you? It’s not the best position to be in and they end up having a lot of “power” in the relationship. If someone wants power in a relationship, that is a clear sign there is a problem.

You should not have to wonder or question how someone feels about you. When it feels like a big guessing game, it’s because someone is playing one.

How will you know when someone has good intentions?

If you are in love, falling in love, or are seriously smitten with someone, what do you do to show them?

Happy Valentine’s Day to those that acknowledge it!

For those who don’t…kick rocks Cupid!

How will you know when someone has good intentions? hmmmmm your heart may skip a beat and things will happen effortlessly and consistently……the actions will match what is being said and you will be at peace making decisions with and for this person………..deep down we know when it is right for us or not. It is what we do with it either way that will determine the said outcome~

Good day.

“How will you know when someone has good intentions?”

I think the best way to gauge anyone’s intentions is by their effort and their consistency! Consistency is the best indicator of anyones effort and it is releated to everyone thing, (how much time they spend together, calling, getting to know each other.) Its all about consistency!

How will you know?

You will Never know for sure,100% !!!! People will proclaim love but it’s not Always that way. And love evolves and fades away.

Love yourself!
That should be the ever present Constant.
Someone can love you today but not tomorrow. You can’t spend your time worrying bout that!

Very interesting, and probing question…One I’ve asked before… maybe not in these exact words, but similar, to come up with being unable to trust no one but myself…why I no longer ask this question.

People change, they flip, turn on us (with and without cause we don’t always understand). They may start out loving, and then next I know…I do something like drop a pot-holder on their foot…they tell another confidant who tells them x,y, z… *general* stuff like this is how and what changes people…alongside a host of other reasons that people feel one way in one space of time, and then another at some distant time.

I will say, I love everyone. My children and my husband I love the deepest, though most know once *we* bond, they’ll never lose my friendship/love unless they decide to change that.

Happy Valentine’s Morning and Day All!

I can so identify with Wise about the dude that kept her uncertain. Looking back at a few guys I dated earlier in my life, they were masters at keeping me uncertain, guessing, on edge. They were evasive and elusive. It was a horrible place to be in. I vowed never again.

That is what I love about my husband. From day one he made his intentions crystal clear. I have never had to 2nd guess where I stood in his life or his feelings for me. He not only shows me in his actions, he expresses his feelings to me. I need both and he gives me both. In turn, I show him how I feel by my dedication to do everything I can to make his life and that of the kids as comfortable and happy as I can. I also tell them too, that I love them.

I looked at him at church on Sunday, so handsome and kind to everyone. I have to pinch myself sometimes and still wonder how I was so blessed.

Like Whitney in her song, I used to ask myself how will I know. I hate to use the old cliche’, but when that person comes along, you definitely know – there is no question in your mind!

O/T…I stuck to my guns. Last night was the first night without him in the house. He still has to move stuff out, but I think he’s going to get most of it out tonight because I won’t be home. It’s been really, really hard. I know I’m gonna cry and be sad for a while, but I’ll pick up the pieces and move on. Just thought I’d let ya’ll know…

Valentine’s joke – Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go out to a nice restaurant TWO TIMES a week. A little candlelight, soft music, dinner, and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays. ~Red (lol think these couples do exist)
