Have you ever met someone and felt like you have been struck by Cupids arrow? Is this love you might ask yourself, or is it just lustful tendencies hiding behind romance? My relationships with woman have always been met with challenges. I lacked the tools necessary to keep a relationship afloat, and my views on woman were one that only satisfied my libido. That was until I came across this amazing woman named Caren. This woman carried a message that enlightened me to examine my views on woman and the relationships I have with them.

Caren was so different than anyone I have ever been in a relationship with. She was so intense and deep with her emotions. She wouldn’t accept feelings and emotions at surface level. These feelings and emotions needed to be explored further into depth to uncover the meaning behind them. “Why” was a common word that she spoke. Sometimes that would become quite problematic in our relationship because I wasn’t used to digging deep into my inner self and trying to figure me out. I would simply tell her “Caren I refuse to drink your kool aid today.” She was such a good sport about it. She would simply answer with a chuckle and a smile.
