Yeah, there's that too. If the words are already causing injury, why not turn them into deeds that go beyond words? There's logic to that line of reasoning. The problem is that logic falls so far short of its mark in dissecting this topic, because logical arguments can be formulated for any number of positions. One thing I agree with wholeheartedly is that there is a clear distinction between what's done in secrecy and what's done in the open. On other other end, having been on the "ass end" of a one-sided open relationship with someone you once _________, where everything was made public but it still often hurt, I also recognize that honesty is never going to be enough by itself. I've been using the word "asymmetry" a lot of late. I think that, while the perception of symmetry almost invariably depends on "illusionment," it's a good goal to aspire towards. The bigger differential in relationship matters, the harder it is to bridge the gap.
