|Where to draw the line? |

|It seems like we live in this society where it isn't the emotional connection or the interest in the individual that drives people to want to be together....but that instant physical attraction. Some (many) will argue that I am wrong, I say take a look at the number of people who hop from relationship to relationship, marriage to marriage. |
I also think that people more easily talk freely about sex via phone or text with someone they just met online...I always try to think to myself, would this person have this conversation with me if we met "normally"...would this be part of what we talked about initially?
My goal, and I have not always stuck to it, is to meet someone and work towards that foundation built on a deeper connection than just something physical. Those sparks everyone seems so hell bent on finding are usually just lust...and a spark fades quickly, I want to find an ember...and to work to turn that little soldering bit into a flame that burns for a long time. I think it can be done--it's just hard.
