Love Talk Of The Week: What do you want from your partner?




All you want from your partner is happiness.

But sometimes there are obstacles that come along the way and try to make you feel something different.

You should let your partner still feel the love you have for them when you feel something different, not only when things go the way you want them to go.

The idea is that the love you give can still attract your partner towards you. In that way you will be close enough to affect them with the part you play in your relationship.

In other words, let your partner still feel the love you have for them during disputes.

With this mindset, you will be in the right position to seek solutions through dialogue rather than just calling it quit.

The stranger on the phone Part 1 (Short Story)

Tricia met Jack on the plane she boarded to Turkey. She sat next to him, and she didn’t hesitate to give him her telephone number at his request. She enjoyed talking to him and wanted to see him again.

“Can we talk today at 9 pm your time?”

She received the message two days after she arrived in Turkey.

She looked at the name with smiles on her face. She replied instantly in a message, consenting to his request. “I like you, Jack,” she whispered to herself. She could hear the pounding of her heart and the blood flowing in her veins. Why 9 pm? she thought, itching to hear his voice, that voice that almost made her grow wings if only she could fly, soar high in his presence. She had never felt for any man what she had felt for him when she first saw him, and she hoped to see him again before the date she had scheduled for her return to the States. She liked handsome men, and Jack was the perfect definition of whatever that meant to her.

Her phone rang at exactly 9 pm. She was lying tirelessly in bed, waiting to speak with him, itching to know why he wanted to speak with her, or why he had even asked for her number. Her hands were shaking as she held the phone close to her right ear.

“Hello Tricia,” a soft voice came up.

“Hi Jack.”

“Can you see me?”

“It’s not a video call.”

“I can see you.”

She felt a cold chill run down her spine as she wondered what he was talking about, and in confusion glanced at her phone and sat upright with a tinge of fear.

“Did you mean you could see me on your phone?”

“No, I’m standing next to you.”

She flinched backwards unconsciously, screwing her eyes everywhere in the room. Tensed and shaky, she cut the line.

“Don’t be afraid my princess.”

She ran towards the door, and for a moment she forgot it was locked as she tried to force it open. His voice was soft but clear.

“I don’t mean any harm, Tricia.”

“Who are you?” she asked, utterly terrified.

“I’m Jack, the man you met on the plane.”

She banged the door with her hands, shouting for help. Two men Thomas and Henry swiftly came to her rescue, standing by the door on the long quiet corridor.

“Can you open the door?” Thomas asked.

She clicked the key and wrenched the knob as fast as she could, and she rushed out, taking refuge behind them.

“There’s a ghost in my room,” she panted.

Both men looked speechlessly at each other, and walked in with care. She followed them looking behind.  The men searched everywhere, but they did not find anyone.

“There’s no one here, Madam,” Henry said.

“There was someone. I heard his voice.”

“Well, we didn’t find anyone. Do you want us to do anything else for you, madam?”

“Could you wait for a moment? I have to get my belongings.”

“Go ahead, madam. We’re here.”

You Have Found Your Dream Partner, What Happens Next?





The idea that you have finally settled down with your dream partner is not enough to give you the happiness you desire in your relationship, but your readiness to do everything possible to keep that person, bearing in mind that you are together to have only the fulfillment that comes when you are happy together.  Continue reading

What Happens Next After An Argument With Your Partner?




After an argument with your partner, do not withdraw into a protective but uncomfortable bubble where you say things like “I will never bother you again from this day onward, or stay away from me, okay?”

In such a mode, you will end up keeping malice with your partner for a while, treating him or her with lack of commitment, or detaching gradually by giving your time to something new.

The danger of taking such an ugly stance in your relationship is that you may never be the same again when you step out of your uncomfortable safe-haven. Such behaviour will send the wrong message to your partner, and for that reason the person may withdraw from you. The consequence is a partner who does not care for you anymore.

Be careful with your utterances in times of arguments with your partner. There’s the tendency that your partner will reflect on whatever word you have uttered, and that might help the person to know exactly what he or she is worth in your life.

How do you want to make your partner happy?

Ask yourself this question and come up with a sincere answer.

Do you have any strategy in mind?

You need to have a strategy, or your own unique way of going about that, despite your occasional failures.

The deal is, you must try to do what brings happiness and be ready to make amends if your spouse misinterprets your actions.

The days are gone when people go into marriage without knowledge of how to make their spouses happy, other than the knowledge of how much sex they would have.

Marriage is much more than that. Think about that.



What You Write Can Hurt


My PC in my front, the cursor on a page

My thoughts in my mind, words from a typeface,

Words that give life or words that kill with rage.

For peace sake, earn yourself a warm embrace.


My Pen in my hand, ink on the paper.

My thoughts in my mind, some words are drafted,

Words that give life or that kill with anger.

For love, love your neighbours and don’t spill blood.

Real Woman

Don’t sting the most stunning girl from heaven:

Her lightface is like gold but not stone-cold:

Eyes shine like stars, stars like eyes of the sun;

Bold smiles are her styles: virtue to behold.

embrace (2)

This is the girl, down-to-earth on this earth:

Her embrace gives life; life gives her a face;

She likes childbirth, a virtue worth her worth:

Matchless grace, not found in a marketplace;

Österreich, Tirol, Plansee

Human, one a human calls a woman,

Mum, yes a mum, even without a child,

For in her pain, she’s still sane and human;

In her heart, she’s a sweetheart to a child;

Don’t sting her, sing for her and marry her,

She’s humane, again a stunning creature.

Falling in Love



Love is the only truth that comes alive if what two people share is able to make them inseparable. This love is like a thin layer of cement put between two blocks to make them have a lasting connection. If cement needs water and sand to bind effectively, love needs devotion and respect to nurture intimacy between two partners. Just like the cement, love needs time to exhibit its full effect. Two people cannot start an affair today and claim they are in love today because they may be dealing with lust. Until two people have spent so much time together to be able to understand each other’s dos and don’ts, they are still far away from loving each other.

Consequently, the idea that two people may start a relationship because of “love-at-first-sight” only means that they approved of each other’s physical attributes, not that they fell in love with each other. Of the aforementioned ten-point checks, physical attributes of one’s potential partner have indeed the strongest tendency to fulfill spontaneously what one desires for in a relationship. So, be careful not to choose your spouse based on only one of the ten-point checks because you may be in for a big surprise which may make you live miserably for a long time.

Choosing A Partner (The Sting)-POST 10

Sources of Distraction (The Sting)

Use this point for your final check with respect to some of the things you hate about your spouse. Ask yourself this question:

Can you cope with those things?

Little things can put us off in a relationship. What puts you off? Are there things your prospective spouse does that make you sad? Does your prospective spouse have hard rules to some of the things you do and he or she would not budge or change any, even if you asked him or her to? How does your prospective spouse use his or her phone, computer, and other electronic gadgets in your presence? How does your prospective spouse interact with you in your good and bad moods? Find an answer to each of these questions and you will know whether to spend your future with him or her. The truth is that some bad habits sting like a bee. In other words, they hurt the heart, mind, and head. Talk to your prospective spouse about the need to stop any off-putting habit if you think it is the only thing that stands between both of you.

Rule 1: You must be sure that you can cope with the bad habits of your prospective spouse before you can make your final decision.

Rule 2: Don’t think that you can make your prospective spouse discard his or her bad habits when both of you are married. It may be impossible after marriage to change what you could not when you were in a relationship with him or her.
