Our Heart; Vulnerability and Singledom

Hey Guys;

Today I was thinking that for us who want relationships do you think that our hearts are open enough for it and that we are vulnerable enough for someone to come in?
I know that I am a pretty independent woman and at times dont want to give up which I think is my heart and my vulnerable side.

Do you think that no matter who comes into our life whether it be OLD or IRL or guy friends or whatever it kind of propels us into letting our guard down and makes us softer..and ready for the real thing? These are just tests to get us to the place we need to go in a good solid relationship?? like when Florida

I love the writing our own rules concept. There really isn;t a right or wrong way to meet people, or be in a relationship.

I don't know who wrote this quote: if a stupid idea works, it isn't stupid.

Hi Ruby,

It DOES seem as if people send out unconscious signals to other people, but there are overt ones, too.

I'll be like that too--sometimes I want to get out of the office, so I'll go out to lunch alone and bring the newspaper and not really look up and not notice anyone around me.

Marina, I do that too - smiling at everyone, that is! It´s a good feeling, and sometimes people smile back and that makes it even better. :-)

I´d love to accidentally meet "my guy" in the grocery store, start talking and go on from there! Much better than meeting him in a disco or something, IMHO. Come to think of it, I did in fact see a very handsome man there a few months ago. :-)
