Most of the threads here seem to concern the 'law of attraction' and silly kind of questions you'd ask one of those corny 'dating gurus'. I don't notice many threads on actual RELATIONships, you know, people relating with each other, and the psychology behind it. It seems to mostly concern superficial characteristics like height or something like that which has to do with maybe establishing a romantic relationship but doesn't concern the day to day relations with a spouse, lover, friend etc. I started a thread on humour and this apparently wasn't on topic, yet a woman's shoe size has a direct bearing on the art of relating between people?

whats not to understand, issues with height, issues with looks only exist because of the desire to be in a relationship of some form be in a ONS, dating, marriage.

You make a post that has nothing to do with "relationships", to complain about posts that have nothing to do with "relationships?

I really have too much time on my hands. Or rather, I try to make threads because I don't feel like doing anything else but post here on cd.

I guess you don't consider the laws of attraction in playing an important role in actually having a "relationship". How many actual relationships have you had and how have you "related" to them?

Well of course, but I'm more interested in hearing about the dynamics and psychology of relationships. That's why I don't post here that often.

I've never been in a relationship, as I can't seem to get past the dating stage. Combination of factors...

Yep, if only I could buy one. And I don't mean a 'girlfriend experience', lol.
