    Unfolding To Others
    The Journey Of Finding A Relationship
    Before we embark upon the journey of finding the relationship that is right for us, we may want to take the opportunity to refine our concepts of who we are and what we want from life. That way, we are clearer on the kind of person we want to attract into our lives. Part of the journey of finding a mate is learning how to become our own mate. When we can learn to meet our needs without relying on someone else to complete us, we don't have to form relationships from the space of needing our emptiness to be filled. We can also discover our intrinsic value, separate from what someone else might be reflecting back to us. Getting to know who we are and learning to love ourselves creates a solid foundation of self that we can bring to any relationship.

    We are fortunate to live in a time when relationships can take on unique forms and unfold at a pace that is right for us. Friendship, dating, open relationships, long term relationships, long distance relationships, or committed relationships - we are free to choose the kind of relationships that we want. If you want to be in relationship, but haven't found the right one for you, remember that the universe works in perfect order. Maybe all this time alone has been part of your preparation period for meeting your intended partner. Even the relationships in our lives that haven't worked out as we had hoped serve us by teaching us to make better choices in our next relationships.

    Finding the relationship we want can come early or later in life. It may even happen again and again in one lifetime. There is no right or wrong for how to find a relationship nor is there a timeline that you have to follow. Follow your heart, listen to your inner voice, continue to become your own soul mate, and stay open to love. Remember that the journey of finding the right relationship begins with being in right relationship with yourself.

    I try to use the Look, Listen, & Learn method.

    Look...with eyes wide open (observing the other one) and an open mind.

    Listen...to my inner voice as well as as what the other one is saying. (Not only to me but to others they interact with)

    Learn...by looking and listening I learn about the other one.

    I had a relationship w/a man from Chi. I read his profile...talked several months on the fone. We visited back and forth for awhile. It took time (b/c of the distance) but as I looked (observing all when I was with him) and I listened (to what he said to me...and to others) I learned that he had totally misrepresented himself on his profile, said just enough truth to make it believeable (but was not positive as he made it out to be) and I learned he was not someone I wanted to have as a friend, let alone as a lover.
