Hi I'm a 32/M from the west coast. So i really like this girl i have been seeing. I met her online and as we talked she told me of some of her history, habits and accomplishments. Although i have achieved a great deal in my life her accomplishments are so different from mine and i find that i want to do everything just like her. But aside from her accomplishments i admire her fearlessness, uniqueness, resilience, and the great self respect she possesses. I feel as though I'm falling in love but since i admire her so much i didn't know if i was just confused or what. I certainly don't want to waste her time or mine. I found my first gray hair in my hair last month, the pressure is on! But after watching this video I realize i admire the qualities in her i lack and also some that i posses, plus i always have a great time with her i can tell we enjoy each other greatly. Maybe i was over thinking this a little?

I admire you, Lori
This is so well spoken. You really made the difference between love and admiration quite clear. We crave attention and admiration fills that void. We crave love and admiration is a pale impostor. Keep on showing us how to find the path to true Torah values.

Although it was not part of the issue, I, rather, than being loved or admired, would prefer to be respected, treated with respect!I am not sure that when people are either admired or loved that they always are treated that way.......
