The meaning and satisfaction of an intimate relationship depends upon respecting the other person as a person of integrity whose free choices are valued and who chooses freely to be intimate with self. Any manipulation coercion, or control of such a person diminishes how much one can respect the violated person, and diminishes the probability of the person freely choosing to be meaningfully intimate with self. In light of the above considerations any attempt to treat an intimate relationship as a technical problem---is bound to diminish the meaning and satisfaction which may flow from the attempt. However, the romantic addict cannot honestly deal with the dilemma as the dilemma it is; and is likely to try to convert the dilemma into a technical problem through some dishonest technique or another. Such dishonesty leads to personal and communal disintegration, not to meaningful satisfaction. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
