Before I entered my relationship, I had been on journey of intense search and understanding of this thing called relationships. I had read, googled listened to sermons and experts, and observed people in relationships; both dating and married, constantly trying to figure out what makes them work and survive the test of time.
One thing that stood out in my research was friendship is key, and with friendship, commitment to the friendship.

Our society nowadays teaches us that before we commit, we must develop a feeling of attraction or chemistry before we can commit to a person. If there is no feeling or chemistry, then there is no commitment. We need to feel someone’s “vibe before we can agree to date them.

It’s an expression of who I am inside! Times have changed and what worked then is not what it is now. Women and Men should be allowed to wear what they want whether decent or not. Those are just some of the sentiments that I picked up in various online conversations.
