    Lecieposted 8 years ago

    what's the one thing about yourself that you've been waiting on your partner to notice and compliment?
    mine would have to be my willingness to put others needs before my own. but yours could even be a physical feature for instance i have a cute freckel on my right foot.

            That's right, MOW...and very insightful of you.

                    AWESOME!! I love it.


                    I would suggest that if a man gets into a woman's mind and can stay there, he should have no problems revealing anything her more sensual nature has to offer.

    The fact that I'm an actual human being and not the paper doll that he imagines I am. wink


    ETA:...although, I suppose he really doesn't count as a "partner" anymore. Though we share the same space (economic and other reasons), we are certainly no longer "together."

              Sorry, I just don't know how to control myself, I try really hard to look girls in burlap sacks directly in the eye when I am talking to them, and really hard not to turn and look when a super pair of legs go by, I really do.  Really.

        Yeah...I've heard this is a hard-wired thing. I wonder if  human morality gets in the way of the reality of instincts...I struggle with this issue...since I believe in the power of choice and free will.

          hehe...now you're talking! See, that's where it gets more complicated: we want them to want us - in every possible way....and YET not chain us down....!

          anyway, keep glowing... see u around..! smile

        This is a little sad sad  go and read my (only) love poem it might make you feel better!

        I have had many relationships, and for some reason, given that I am not such a pretty sight, many have been with beautiful girls. In my case it is them that did not want permanence or commitment when it came down to it, once they tired of 'using' me! As I learned literary criticism I read this phenomenon as to do with how men and women see each other, the old idea that men are 'presence' and women 'looked at', but this just disguises the division between the two that has been forced by many modern (last few hundred years) issues like the rise of commodity forced the issue of 'property' which leads on to feminism which leads on to separation.  One line of this argument says that women are free (quite rightly) and so must have certain rights but they can only take these from men who already possess them.

        The result is people too concerned about their own self to be able to give up enough of themselves to the other.

        BTW I am told I have a cute a*s.
