Do you know who you are with?

Here is an interesting question: when you are dating someone,
do you know who you are actually dating? I mean, are you
absolutely sure that the person you are "seeing" in front
of you is the real person in front of you?

Unfortunately, most people are not sure whom they are dating,
or even being intimate with, or sometimes even living with, or-
worst of all-married to. Most people think they know whom they
are with, but in reality they do not.

Sounds crazy, doesn't it? How is it possible to be so very
close to someone and yet have no idea who the person actually is?

It starts with what happens to people when they are single. It
is the rare single person who is dating and yet is neutral about
being in a relationship. In other words, most singles who are
dating are doing so for the purpose of connecting with someone
special. Not all want marriage, or even to live with someone;
but most want a connection.

This desire for a connection clouds people's judgment. They see
whom they want to see and not the person in front of them. On
top of that, many singles make mistakes at the start of a new
relationship, such as moving too quickly into the relationship,
which clouds their judgment even more.

It's not that if you actually were able to see the person you
are dating you would suddenly realize that he or she is all
wrong for you, although that is possible. There is also a good
change you would find out the person is just right for you.

But seeing the other person clearly, before you get too deeply
into the relationship, is important to your happiness down the
road. Accurately seeing each other prevents both of you from
forming false expectations and fantasies about each other.
Seeing each other clearly can help the two of you appreciate
your differences instead of fighting against them. It makes for
a more pleasant, smoother relationship rather than the drama
most couples end up going through as the relationship develops.

If you are single and dating there is a good chance you have
clouded judgment about the person whom you are with. There are
many ways to gain clarity, one of which is to go slowly enough
to let time show you the real person behind the person you think
you are dating.

What are other ways to gain clarity? Most involve delving deep
within yourself, so that you can see yourself clearly. Once you
can do that, other people cam be seen clearly as well. Check out
the eclass below and the resources section of this newsletter
for opportunities to work on yourself.
