"To the impartial eye, the world not only seems an unlikely one-off phenomenon, but a constant strain on reason. If reason exists, that is, if a neutral reason exists. So speaks the voice from within. So speaks Joker's voice." - Jostein Gaarder

Think Sigmund Freud

I am a lonely child.

I lived with my mom alone until I was 12, and slept in her bed until I was 9.

My mother was a pediatrician [i.e. no other doctor was allowed to lay hands on me until i was 18, except under severe circumstances, and close-friend-doctors only, under direct observation], Mom was my healer.

Boy, am i gonna have some serious relationship issues!

I don't know Yazan, it may be a good think for future relationships. You have a more intimate understanding of women.

Relationships are like bullfighting, if you let them come too close you'll get a horn in the testicles. As you defeat more bulls in your life, your ego will become of teflon and it won't matter how fed up they are with you, you just finish with a coup de grace and move on.

S2al mjareb (albeit with my testicles intact) ;)

Dear Yazan,
May be you will go for the mothering type, which is all right if she lets you breathe.
Best of luck with the tender gender

I believe that psychobabble crap is grossly overrated.
Think nothing of it. When you're in the arms of the "right" woman, you'll find out what really matters, without even trying.

As the mother of a grown-up son it seems to me that you left home soon enough and became independent. Of course, at the moment, the close relationship you had with your mother seems far more important because it has gone. But to have left Syria and gone to Japan before you were 21 suggests to me that you are every bit your own man and will have no more (or less!) problems with relationships than anyone else.

Stay strong and confident.

Yazan, I feel for you man, I haven't had a female arm other than my mother embrace me.

But like Abu Fares said, when the moment comes, it will be natural and you will know it

I think those of us who have come to know you through the blogsphere realize that you are truly your own man.. You are an independent and mature person.. so, for what it's worth, in my opinion: You will be fine!..

If I was a girl I'd go out with you.

You've gotten a ton of votes of confidence, ya Yazan - personally, if I was, hmmmm, say 15 years younger and single, I wouldnt mind testing your relationship issues at all :))

We all have our issues, but we seem to manage. You'll be fine if you just continue to look inwards every once in a while.

Akh ya Lujayn, If I was only in the same continent to take u and Katia up on that! :)

maza-kon all the way, my friend. But thats no matter. Most women won't mind it (or even might prefer it) and as others have said, you're not exactly a hapless child. Don't worry about it :)
