I am reading a book right now which is about relationships. Specifically in this book it is about God, but I am sure a lot of it applies to human relationships. I have never felt I am very good at relationships or at least what I think it means. I am not particularly demonstrative, being uncomfortable with a lot of emotion and I don't think I have a romantic bone in my body. I am the ultimate pragmatist.
There is a lot of mention about connecting in the book, what does that mean to you? To me it is having common interests, good conversation and seeing each other once in a while, but I feel that what the writer means is sharing deep personal revelations, having warm feelings for the other person and hanging out with that person all the time.
I hope I am connected to my husband, we get on well, we each value our own space, lots of it, and we value each others space. We are affectionate but not overly emotional. We talk about everything, we are best friends.
I notice that many people on blogs leave messages about loving their internet friends, how can that be if you have never met them. I must be missing something, I can appreciate a person's mind, their ability to share clearly but it doesn't make me love them. Is there something about connecting with others that I am missing do you think? Some people blogs are very popular and I think they have found this ingredient of good content and connectivity.
