I think I should lay off the blog sermons.
Today's topic will be (Nosmo reaches in the hat and withdraws a bright, white piece of paper), 'relationships'. That's right, love doctor Nosmo is going to spice up your love life.
First, I would like to admit that I don't often practice what I preach (I'm too busy blogging). But I was thinking the other day about male 'lack-of-sensitivity' and female 'frigidity' in a long term relationship and I think I have a solution that doesn't require a membership to Ashely Madison Dot Com.
What is the solution? I want you to think about this. Toss it around in your brain like a Caesar salad for a while before you make your mind up and throw in the croutons.
The key to a successful relationship hinges on two major factors:
Honesty: Yeah, I heard that one a million times, Nosmo. My man wouldn't be honest with me for anything. Honesty is important. It is the foundation of communication. But it isn't the end all meets all (or however that goes).
Understanding: Here is the key. Let's say you and I are married and I tell you some secret about me that I want you to be a part of (or rather something I want us to share). Good. I'm being honest, yes? So why are you filing for divorce? Because of lack of understanding.
But what is 'understanding'? I don't understand. Yeah. Well, understanding is not just about being aware of the meaning behind words but being sensitive to the fact that they just told you something and so therefore it must be important to them. And since you love him, then the things that are important to him become important to you.
Furthermore, they are different from you. Men think different from women and women think different from men. The moment we not only understand this but embrace it, is the moment we have a successful relationship. Or at least a start.
Furthermore some more, when a man opens up and tells a woman something and she excepts it and embraces it, he becomes confident to open up some more. And when he has bared his soul to his woman and everything but his liver is lying out on the chopping block, there will suddenly be a connection of trust. Which leads to leads to a closeness that can be considered nothing less than romantic.
And guys, romance leads to you know what. But we have to step out, be brave and lay that dark, little secret thats been itching in our heads for so long.
So, we come round full circle and everyone is happy. And we make babies and have mortgages and minivans. Or maybe you'll just travel Europe together? Who knows.
