MTR ….

So, in case you didn’t notice. I have officially entered into an MTR, so we move from theory to data collection. No no, no gasping! I’m mostly kidding. I’ve been thinking and talking about this idea for about a year now, and I like it (obviously). People have told me, though, that it would never work, that my/our emotions would get all messed up no matter how open and honest everyone is.

In my life, I have entered into a number of relationships, and they mostly started the same way, with twitterpation and a desire to be around each other all the dang time.

For those of you who don’t know:

I love hearing people’s stories and telling my own, so this part is exceptional for me. I think, looking back, that the next stage included talking about the future. I think in general that is the thing that propels the relationship along into “serious” rather than “just” dating. Once you start talking about the ways you will continue to entwine your lives, well, you do just that.

In my idea about MTRs, this is probably the weak point. Because that is what people do, they want to belong, to belong to each other. People want to be loved, to feel important to others, to be able to depend on each other. They want to connect.

Since my move date is solid, conversations about the future were consistently truncated.





At first.
