If we are not together we want to hear their voice and know they are reaching out to us now.
In our busy lives we don’t always answer our phones.
Interestingly, I’ve found that many people, particularly men, seem to find it easier to talk on the phone about these issues than talking in person.
Texting is a poor substitute for talking when we reach stage four and are wanting real, lasting love.
Calling requires us to keep trying if we’re going to make a connection.
Whether we’re in the early stages of dating or the later stages of love, we need perseverance and persistence if we’re going to deepen the relationship and help it grow.
The sound of a voice can provide soothing and healing when the misunderstandings of human interaction get in the way of care and connection.
Most everyone grew up in families that were less than optimal.
We suffered from various degrees of neglect, abuse, and abandonment.
In order to get through the dating stage and develop a real relationship, we have to talk about our wounding.
When they don’t live up to our projected image we become dismissive and begin looking elsewhere.
It’s much more difficult to understand and heal the pain and reconnect when we do more texting than talking.
When we talk, we are interacting with a real person in real time.
