I have an Outback gift certificate which needs to be redeemed soon. There's really no local woman I'm interested in asking, except for two in my Apt Complex who would probably meet me for Dinner at Outback. One is 36, who talks w/ me frequently, and the other is 26 working on her PhD, but we've gotten to know each other by seeing each other on the Apt Complex Grounds.
The operative word in all this is willing. If one's mindset is "I must give everything up for this person" they are no better than a doormat. Having the will to sacrifice doesn't mean that you must give up everything or even be put into a situation where that would occur, but it is a frame of mind. It is also a call to compromise rather than cave in just to keep harmony within the relationship. There is little opportunity for personal spiritual growth for either party if one is constantly a pushover.
