Let’s get this out of the way right now: Yes, there are serious disadvantages to online dating. There are security and safety concerns. The 1972 Academy Award-winning documentary Marjoe is one of the most fascinating, eye-opening documentaries to ever come along. The story follows Marjoe Gortner who, as a small boy, was pushed into being a child evangelist preacher by his parents, who trained him to be a manipulative showman to perform in the church tent revivalist circuit, earning them large sums of money. Despite his lack of religious belief, Marjoe rejoined the ministry as a young adult to support himself by using his fame and status to defraud money from devout religious followers through tent revivals and televangelism. This documentary came along after Marjoe had an attack of conscience and decided to quit being an evangelist. During his final revival tour, he gave a documentary film crew complete access to him, his process, and the tricks of his trade.
I strongly believe that it is not easy not to see someone that means the world to you for a long period of time. Long-distance relationships can therefore, be very demanding and hard to maintain. But at the end, if you love someone very much, then you will be able to go through everything for him.
And if you watch these Victoria’s Secret models strut down the runway, you will see this principle in action. Leading with the pelvis does cause your chest to pop out a little (because of that lovely c-curve in your spine) but it’s very different from consciously trying to thrust your breasts forward in a forced way, or yanking your shoulders down and back, which can be painful and difficult to maintain.
I have a narcissistic MIL and I have learned that no matter how hard you to try and please these people it is a waste of time. I believe that karma has a way of paying people back for their deeds to others. No one is perfect but all you can do in life is respect others and treat them well. You have to love yourself and you can’t let others dictate your self worth. Easier said than done. Some people are naturally selfish. That being said, after a while, step back and don’t extend yourself beyond what is needed for these people. Someone can only bring you down if you hand over your self worth to them.
Men and women are not exactly the same. Our bodies are different, our brains are wired differently, we communicate differently, we have different mannerisms, and in some cases, we have unique needs. But the male gatherer would have you believe this cannot be true, as that would not be fair or equal for him.
This happens because you have a barrier between you and her. You don’t see her move around and do normal things, you don’t see the full array of expressions, you don’t catch her in moments she is not prepared, and every sentence can be prepared and you can always make ammends if something goes wrong. These are just examples, the truth is a virtual crush can last longer.
