I guess I can reveal one of the symptoms of the funk. If you read my LJ and that of my sweetie overzen you may have noticed that we both made angsty posts about chat. Well, we had a little fight the other night over a misunderstanding. My grumpy state of mind did not help matters. As I posted many months ago, chat can be pretty sterile of emotions since it is just words. There is a lot of subtlety in communication be it intonation of voice or facial expressions, both of which are lacking in chat (without webcam). So what may appear to be a joke may end up being taken in a serious way. An emoticon used in playfulness may end up being an insult. Anyway, we violated one of the rules of a relationships and went to sleep in anger (I think that's an Oasis song). By the next day, however, we both realized the foolishness of it all, and after an exchange of emails, the damage had been repaired. I had so wanted to chat with him that I rushed upstairs to get on the Net as soon as Tenax had left for the evening. Curse you fate!!! My Internet was down! I decided to give dexter_fox a call since I hadn't heard from him in quite a while. I was also going to call albear but I knew Tenax had planned on giving him a call on his drive back to Socorro. During my call with Dex the Internet was restored and I had a nice chat with zen. I think it is safe to say that the relationship has taken another leap forward and we are now closer than ever. As long as there is openness, honesty, communication, understanding, caring, feeling, and support, the relationship with flourish and grow.
Thanks to all for the words of support yesterday. Love you all!
