Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand.

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

Hi, I'm VERY new to blogging...my dear friend wanted me to try it out as I have hit quite a few rough patches relationship wise as well as trusting my instincts in the past year. While blogging I came across yours...and I wanted to say Thank-you...I enjoy reading all the little bits and pieces you have put together. I find comfort on most days after reading an article or two. Hopefully as I continue to figure out my path to finding/discovering where my special significant other is...I'll keep finding comfort and advice from your site. Cheers!
