Throwback Thursday: Testing Affections Is In Poor Taste


"Neither party should try to make the other jealous for the purpose of testing his or her affection. Such a course is contemptible; and if the affections of the other are permanently lost by it, the offending party is only gaining his or her just desserts. Neither should there be provocation to little quarrels for the foolish delight of reconciliation." PSG~Translation: Don't try to test the extent of your partner's feelings for you by making them jealous. It's immature and in poor taste, and if you get kicked to the curb because of it, you can only blame yourself. Couples should also refrain from picking ridiculous fights in an attempt to re-create the passion and fire of former times. It reads way too similar to the bipolar extremes of an abusive relationship. It shouldn't take such things to re-ignite a little passion...find a more creative way.

Reflecting on the last 4.5 years, I recently thought that living in New York has taught me a lot about who I am and what I am capable of overcoming. It's a ruthless city that does not beat around the bush. It administers tough love right to your face and you can either take it and learn, or retreat.
