On relationships

My sweets, I LOVE doing Motherhood Mondays and talking openly about all things parenthood. Thank you so much for the fascinating discussions and eye-opening comments.

So, I had an idea! I'd like to start a new series: Relationship Thursdays. (Is there a catchier name?:) I keep thinking of relationship-y things that I'd love to discuss, but so far, there hasn't really been a place on the blog for that. So, now, we can talk in honest and fun ways about everything from first dates and break-ups to weddings and spouses, as well as other relationships, like those with friends, parents and siblings.

What do you think? I'm excited. Let me know if you have anything in particular that you'd want to talk about! xoxoxo

Joanna - I am late to reply but I did want to add my two cents as well. I am not a mother, but find your "Motherhood Monday's' fascinating. I will really look forward to Thursdays. I second Amelia's "Love Actually" for a title, but I also thought of "Shared Cuppa" for a descriptive name. As for topics, I am probably older than most of your reader (almost 50) and have been with my husband for over 20 years, but I still have much to learn about how to be a better partner and also some things to share from my experiences.

This sounds great! I enjoy reading the Motherhood Monday posts, but since I am not yet a mother it's not quite as personal to me. However, I just got engaged and would love to hear more about real relationships.

If it hasn't been mentioned:
1. How they knew, or the moment/catalyst that made them realise that person was IT

2. He's Just Not That Into You- it changed my life and I think it's spot on, thoughts?

3. Cliches! The older I get the more I realise all the cliches about love and relationships are there for a reason!

What about "Thistly Thursday" ...relationships are prickly little things...with a beautiful flower on top, of course :)

I really like this idea, I find that people these days are too conservative about things that are most important. It would also be good to plan for more fun romance adventures just in time for the weekend!

How about...

Think Romance Thursday?

Great idea!

I'd like to hear about how everyone keeps the spark alive in a longterm relationship. And also not sure if this is the most appropriate forum but why is it that sex becomes more infrequent the longer you are in a relationship when it was once so exciting! Is it just me?!

Love this idea. I have just started dating the elusive "romantic man." At first it really scared me off and I backed away. Then I injured my neck, he showed up at my parents house where I was re cooperating, (which btw was 2 hours away from his place) with a care package for me. It included, chocolate, tea, coffee beans, vitamins, a magic bag, lottery tickets, a photoshop magazine, cough drops, vitamin water annnd home made zucchini soup! I think I could get used to this whole romance thing. I am curious to know if there are many other women out there that are at first thrown off by romance?

I've been with someone for about two months although i had a crush on him for almost half a year. Everything went off so well and all of a sudden he ended the rela and told me we are not fit for each other. I've been having dreams about him *at least once a week ... dreaming about scenes like he saying break up or jsut some very ordinary dating scenes... we are friends no more but i jsut can't stop thinking about him and this is really frustrating....

Hey Jo! I'm hailing all the way from Singapore - a tiny island in Southeast Asia. And I'm a fan of your blog. and yes Relationship Thursdays does seem like a great idea. Give us new insights to things like balancing love life and a career, long distance relationships, the sacrifices and the rewards of being in a strong rship. Cheers.

I would love a post on how to make friends when out of school! I love my family and my boyfriend, but it would be nice to have a couple girlfriends to hang out with every few weeks.

Sammi said...

i love this idea. partly because i am a massive commitmentphobe and it would be lovely to find some advice on how to get past that, is that relationshipy?

Anne said...

Great! Just don't forget how much your gay readers (am I the only one?) love the use of the word "partner" whenever possible!

Baylee said...

LOVE the idea. Please do some divorce tips for young divorcees! I would appreciate it! Love the pics too

sherryyo said...

Ooo, I love this idea! I really miss your Glamour posts on relationships. I visit your last post on the site every once in awhile to give me some hope. (You guessed it, I am single! haha) Yes, you, Ryan Dodge and Erin Meanley were my favorite things on all of the interwebs for those couple of years. So thank you!

Relationships are definitely on my mind quite often. I think a post about helping friends/siblings through a breakup would be interesting. As an older sister I have been through a couple and I feel like I am the one being broken up with sometimes. Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts (as well as others) about what they do to cheer their friends up and what words help the most in a situation like that.
