But there's still a lot, scratch that, there's everything to be said for real human connection, face to face, breathing the same air in the same space. A space where all the senses feed your positive intuition not just a random set of images feeding your fear (if you're Lycra man).
Regardless of who it is that we need to forgive, the act of forgiving is equally beneficial. When we forgive, we free ourselves and others from the binds of pain and hurt and open ourselves to true healing and love. Through the power of forgiveness, we open ourselves to the a new way of being, which allows us to attract and create more loving relationships in our lives.
I spoke with my friend. I asked outright: What should someone do for a loved one who is suffering? What helps? Together we discussed her feelings. Her perspective. Her pain. And then we worked on some bearings that really helped me be a better friend. Today I'd like to share those with you.

I was tentative about saying the "L word;" it was a big step for me -- especially considering that Lucas and I had never actually met. In person, that is. The Internet has, indeed, made the world a very small place.
Parenthood and dating can co-exist but those who manage them well are not struggling to acclimate to newly single lives. And they've healed to where parenthood and dating no longer collide but can share space in their life so they can mindfully and healthfully meet someone new.
