What appear to be intimate relationships are not always truly intimate relationships. Often people trap themselves in relationships of mutual manipulative advantage, in the absence of true love. They resent each other's manipulations, while they manipulate each other in exchange for mutual advantages; but they do not truly respect or desire each other. True lovers do not manipulate each other with dishonest techniques for gaining advantages at each other's expense. They are not trying to win a contest. True lovers honestly respect each other and desire to know each other more fully and honestly, but not as a part of a manipulative strategy by which to win some advantage. True lovers are not trying to control each other or themselves out of any concern for over imperfection or perfection according to some standards for good conformity. They are not driven by conformal standards which presumably define what is good and what is evil apart from who they truly are within themselves and to each other. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
