I always told my math students to never say either never or always in regards to a situation. Unless they really mean it. 🙂 But there is such a thing as likelihood.
JeffSt Ha! Never say never, is what I say . . .
“Whether you think you can [will] or whether you think you can’t [won’t], you’re right!
Absolutely true re “truly friends.” Though it;s hard for me to see how a relationship is even possible without the two people being friends. FWIW, my now-ex and i were friends for a few weeks before we coupled. I hope someone is able to take the things i learned from that relationship and apply them to their own relationships, be they ongoing, brand new, preening or potential. As i’ve said before, more “practice” for me is highly unlikely at this point. Lots of guys keep playing in the NFL well into their 30s and even 40s, but at a certain juncture, you have to translate your love of the game onto other channels, such as … coaching. 🙂
JeffSt I believe it’s easier for couples to experience more comedy is when they are truly friends. I was listening to a broadcast today, and the woman broadcaster was saying how she and her husband enjoyed talking to each other in movie quotes – they make a game of it. Even when things get a bit heavy conversation wise, one of them will do this – and it signals to the other to back off or lighten up. Those kinds of communications that form the unique “culture” of a relationship make a huge difference not only in how the couple relates to each other, but in the longevity of their relationship. Hopefully you will be able to take all the things you’ve learned from your previous relationship and apply it to a new one. More comedy and fun – less drama!
That would have been a great idea, but my one really long term was drama from just about opening day till the last phone conversation we had, the second day of the new millennium, cutting off all contact, about 8 years after separating/divorcing. It would be nice, IF there is a next time, to have a lot more comedy.
