I have been considering for a long time having a blog to discuss dating and relationships. It's a subject I'm totally fascinated with, and have found myself reading more dating blogs, forums, and discussions in recent months. I'm not only interested in personal stories, but also the ways in which gender, shifting social scripts, and divisions between thoughts and actions play out on a larger, patterned scale. Even though I tend to view my own relationships and approach to dating through a spiritual lens, I want to talk about more than just Zen and yogic influences.
So, I have started another blog. We'll see what happens with it, but at the very least, it will allow me to maintain the focus here, while exploring the other interests I have over there.
Here is the first post. It's a pretty long, somewhat confessional piece about a relationship that continues to, in some ways, break my heart. The writing, I hope, conveys some of the complexities involved, while also demonstrating the love that carried through it.
We'll be back to our regularly scheduled posts soon. Have an excellent Wednesday!
