Good thoughts, Renata. I'm still shy of social media, but texting I can handle, though I'd still prefer a voice connection now and then.

But your first few points seem to come down to, does this person have a life, and might their life have room to overlap with mine? I don't want to be anybody's everything, or always at the top of their priorities, because I've got my own agenda. But to value the relationship because it adds real quality to both lives--sign me up.

But tracking your S.O. as if you own them? Sheesh! Just buy a dog.
