Is it true?  People have to be cautious now when dating because most people are looking for help, not love?  We live in a society now where love has been watered down to the words of "I'm here aren't I?" or "I'm not with anyone else so I must love you!"  That does not mean you love.  It could just mean that it is convenient, you are an opportunist or you have nothing else to do right now and this helps me out.

We are relational beings, we were created from love so shouldn't love exude from our very pores?  Life, divorce, faulty relationships have made a many people cautious in their next relationship.  In that caution, are people simply looking at what can the other person do for me as opposed to what can I do for you?  What are the right steps we need to take in order to ensure we are not trapped in the "help syndrome"?  Are there signs to look for and if so, how does one develop the courage to step away from it?

Love is a leap of faith.... it simply is. You're either in it all the way or you're not at all.  Talk to us tonight!
