You Got That Right

"People always let you know exactly how to treat them through their actions - one never needs to guess."

~ "Restaurant Refugee"

"Commitment is in the heart - and can never be stopped or started by the wearing of a ring."

~ Char

"While we all enjoy getting compliments, remember, words are just words. It is actions that are important...Actions are the windows into people. Words are their defenses."

~ Jerry Critter


"I want your heart to skip a beat when you know it's me calling, texting, or e-mailing. I want you to feel weak in the knees when you are around me. I want the things I say to leave you slightly breathless. I want your spine to tingle when I put my hand in the small of your back and pull you in close. I want you to be able to look into my eyes and know you can trust me, know that I won't hurt you and that I would protect you. I want you to want to grab me by the shoulders, the arms, the chest."
This was written by a man whose blogs I have been reading for awhile now. I feel so most of these things and more when I hear from or am around my significant other. We are not actually dating yet, we've known each other for years but things have kept us apart. This year has been the best one since we met, and I hope it continues to improve. He is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Hidden Secrets His Hugs Reveal

I got this information from the December 2009 issue of Cosmopolitan.

The way your guy holds you close is tightly tied to his feelings for you.

He comes up behind you and puts his arms around your chest.

Even if he hasn't said the words yet, a guy who grabs you like this is in love. He's blanketing your body with his, your feet are intertwined, you're leaning into him...There's a real sense of oneness here. By covering your back, he's conveying that he wants to shelter you. He's also flexing his masculinity--this displays his strength and dominance. The one exception is if your man almost always hugs you from the back. That might mean he craves a closer connection but thinks you're unavailable. He avoids hugging face-to-face because he's worried you're not into him.

He gently strokes your back while holding you.

This affectionate gesture signifies that your guy cares deeply about you. The back is a very vulnerable part of the body. You can't see your back, so being touched there can be startling. Softly rubbing you on such an exposed zone shows that he wants to nurture and protect you.

He thumps your upper back during an embrace.

Okay, this hug is loaded. Let's start with the worst-case scenario: He's not into you. This is how men hug their buddies; it's not romantic at all. When a guy frequently embraces you like this, it means the relationship is not growing. Wait--don't freak out yet. If The Pat only happens once in awhile, rather than on a regular basis, it's not a red flag. If you're in public, it could simply mean he isn't into PDA and wants to keep things casual.

He encircles your lower back with his hands and pulls you tightly toward him.

Hubba hubba! The dude wants you. A pelvis-to-pelvis embrace shows he'd like to merge with you sexually. The farther down your body his hands travel, the more fired up he is. There's one last thing to take note of: Does he touch his head to yours? Then he wants to merge his thoughts with yours as well. Translation: If it's a new relationship, you're more than a fling to him. If you've been together for awhile, he's ready to get more emotionally and mentally intimate...

Thought for Today...

Don't ever think that there's not enough time to show how much you care. Always remember, big things are nice, but it's the small stuff in love that counts.

"Soul Mates"

The light of my world is within your eyes....The sound of your laughter heals all my wounds...You always fix me when I'm broken, and your advice can solve all my problems...There's no growing old alone because we are only growing together...When I am lost, you find me and when I am confused, you set me straight...In all this crazy world, I'm so glad that you came to me to be the soul mate that completes me so perfectly. You will always have my heart and I will always be with you wherever you may go.

Soul mate is a very hard thing to describe, but there's my attempt...It's by no means perfect and way too short to be accurate.

Always remember that "love is returnable."
