First video:

Maikuru talks about his relationship philosophy, how he approaches a girl he likes, and the dreaded "friendzone".

Second video:

Maik and I talk about how we started dating and our first impressions. This was about a month ago, hence his beard.

J.K. Rowling has covered relationships excellently with the whole Hermione, Ron, Harry and Grawp dynamic. Hermione gets both Ron and Harry in being with Ron. Ron wonders about this, but doesn't care in the end, as evinced when he comes back in the Deathly Hollows Pt. 1 and tries to appeal to Hermione with the 2 against 1 vote thing. He's saying he doesn't care, that his love transcends the whole power struggle, but further tells Hermione he needs her to deal with the bad of the world, first touching her affectionately of completely his own accord after stifling a want to kill the Death Eater who he suggests may have been the one who killed Mad-Eye. All relationships, in our fearful state, are born out of a want for power, but then can grow from that into something magical and transcendental, or sometimes anyway. My favourite scene of the entire series is probably in Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 where Ron chases after Goyle and his buddies, roaring "That's my girlfriend!" only to come running back moments later crying "Goyle set the place on fire!" It's to state that we gotta stay some bit realistic, but that the coming together of two people like that is beautiful and to touch on magical all the same.

I turned my speakers all the way up and it's still very quiet and metallic-sounding. I agreed with what Maikuru said, that a strong friendship is a great foundation for a strong relationship, but I had to stop watching after that.

What are you referring to?

Your belief that anyone wishes to hear your musings on relationships or your experiences. There's a cognitive bias which makes us believe that we are much more interesting to other people than we really are, but I forgot precisely which one it was; hence the link.

No offense though, it's not you in particular. These things just aren't much more interesting than hearing about the size and shape of my toenail clippings.

Yeah, I need to speak up. I guess I'm too used to letting tulle do all the talking =)

I'd say you don't have to watch them but you already knew that, right? Just like you knew that you didn't have to click on the forum topic, read the OP, think of a response, google a link, and post a vague response?

I guess we'll all engaging in frivolity today =D

Sammie passed away two years ago in a hit and run.

Tulle and I are indeed together. We're coming up on 7 months, believe it or not. Yeah, I don't know what she's thinking either.

I think it has more to do with whatever software was used to screencast than anything.

No, she did. I was there.

As to your second question, only when she's had a few drinks.

You stirred some envy in him or something and he's trying to control the situation.

The difference is this thread is about you being in a good relationship and Eitan isn't handling being single very well.
