Advice for the Lovelorn, With Dr. Zaius


This is in response to a post by Blue Gal, in which she explained her feeling about relationships in general, and illustrated the different points that she made with clips from different films, via YouTube. Blue Gal's post was in fact a response to a post by Driftglass, which was a response to an earlier post by Blue Gal, which was in response to a post at Shakespeare's Sister.

It is a challenge in this day and age to build a healthy and long-lasting romantic relationship, and I think that Blue Gal has offered some sound advice in this important matter. Still, it a broad subject, and I feel that perhaps there are a few points that could be covered in greater detail. I submit the following as series of steps one can take in a relationship that will help you and your current or future mate find romantic bliss.

Just click on each link, and each step will be illustrated by the corresponding video. Trust me, I'm a doctor!

Learn to communicate on a spiritual level.
Remember to take time out for yourself.
Don't ignore, but explore your differences.
Build the relationship from it's component parts.
Share at least one meal a day with your mate.
Set personal goals for your self.
Appreciate the unique temple that is your body.
Be honest, tell your partner how you really feel.
Show compassion and empathy for others.
Relationships are based on mutual trust.
Remember that your love is special and unique.
Watch out for evil robot heads!

Let the other person become your best friend before becoming your lover.

It worked for me and we've been married for 21 years.

Don't share panties. Or bank accounts.

remember that what you love about that person now will be the thing that drives you crazy later on.

And there is the the variation of that one Liberality, what drives you crazy in your partner is what drives you crazy in your self.

Damn that one!

I'm simply too lazy to implement all of these wonderful suggestions, Dr. Z.

Pissed Off Patricia: Yes, but becoming fast friends is usually the kiss of death when courting a woman. Ack!

Angry Ballerina: Hmm... I would say that more than a few bank accounts have been depleted over the attempted removal of a girl's panties, however.

Liberality: Don't be a pessimist! Look on the bright side - some other facet of their personality will probably will drive you crazy anyway!

Freida Bee: Don't be a pessimist! Look on the bright side - You were probably not that tightly wrapped in the first place! (Damn that one.)

that post was pimp. I have yet to master the intertubes beyond a html link. This lowly man bows to the superiority of your apiness.

Thank you, Fade! Some shrink on the Colbert report said that if you want to increase happiness to your life, get married. On the other hand, to decrease happiness just have children!
