Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Chemistry


I was talking to a gay-shaded friend who was complaining about the lack of someone special in his life, but who has a lot of close male friends.  I asked him why he didn't have a relationship with one of them.  He said there was no "chemistry".  But ... the chemistry, that mad wonderful hysteria of "in love" always dies, and what you're left with, if you're lucky is "love".  Friendship, companionship, caring, sharing your burdens, laughing together, listening while the other vents, choosing birthday and Christmas presents for your other half, knowing that he or she loves you (even if they're not "in love" any more), forgiving, accepting, loving.  Sharing your lives.

Maybe that's not "chemistry".  But it is magical.  Yet to get there takes hard work from both of you.  Like a beautiful garden, it doesn't just "happen".  It's made.
