Am I the moth or the flame?

So I stole part of that line from a Smallville episode that I saw tonight.  It was a great line though and I had never thought of looking at oneself in that way.  When you’re in a relationship or looking to be in one, we’re either the moth or the flame.  I suppose that technically both people could be both.  You could be the moth drawn to the flame (your partner), and you could also be the flame that the moth (your partner) is drawn to.  That would actually be the preferred situation.  If only one of you is the moth then it’s basically unrequited love or attraction.

I think that has been the problem with many of my relationships.  I was never both the moth and the flame at the same time.  From now on if I don’t see from the beginning that I’m both, I won’t pursue the relationship any further.  I guess that’s going to be rule number seven on my list.

I’m exhausted now so I hope I’m making some sense here.  If not, I apologize for rambling.

Good night & happy humping!
