Women love deep. Men love often

Tomorrow Penny and I celebrate 20 years of marriage and are off for a day of pampering treatments so no tweets or blogs tomorrow folks. Well maybe one or two ;-)

I have read that women love deep but not often and men love often but not deep.

I was wondering what your experience is as I am definitely in the not often and deep camp and I'm a man. How about you?

How many times have you fallen in love as opposed to loved someone?

Apparently it takes just 4 seconds to fall in love. Is that true? This is what happened to me 1/9/1988 when I first met Pen at Bytech Peripherals Bracknell accidentally match made by Moira Craig from Aldus Software. It took me until May 5th 1989 to even get a date!

Someone else told me you can't fall in love more than 3 times in your life. Surely that can't be true either. I guess a chance of once is enough for most.

What say you?

Women love deep. Men love often

Hi Thomas. I have not looked at an ecademy blog for months. So why did I suddenly decide to look on the 20th anniversary of you and Penny making a lifelong commitment. As an observer for those 20 years and more, a number of things come to mind. They will probably keep me tapping away for ages because every anniversary is special. Firstly I know how different you and Penny are, and how this has provided a rock solid foundation, which has stood the tests of time, the roller coaster of life, the highs and lows, the tears and laughter, much laughter. It was Brian Tracy who told me that you measure the strength of a relationship by how much you laugh together. I now know this is accurate. Lyn and I laugh a lot, especially in bed.........I wonder, no, I suspect, that your bed rocks with laughter. "When I read about Penny's goals and major purpose in life, I just had to marry her" I remember you saying this when I asked a question. I never knew or asked what these were, although I often wondered :-) But I knew you were a partnership for life, just as Lyn and I are......nearly 43 years but who is counting. True, unconditional love is an amazing thing. We receive it from our pets and just sometimes we receive it from other humans. It is the most valuable gift we can give or receive. It cannot be bought. It is beyond wealth. It is the root of happiness and real success in life. You know that I have always found you both inspiring to my life. From the moment we met at the Belfry in 1988 or 1989. You introduced me to Penny and she was very different but she also inspired. It is very rare or almost unique for me to feel this way about any two people. At one stage I said to you that: Ecademy is for the moments in life that the devil cannot touch. This was inspired by the poetry of a famous English poet whose name I forget, and it is too late to research. In many ways I think ecademy has been a sanctuary for me and many others whether we realised that or not. Your sale of the business represents the end of an era, which has been brilliant for me and ecademy has made a superb contribution. It is actually hard to explain how exactly, but it has. So, have a drink on me. Congratulations. I am looking forward to the next 20 years and hope to be around to celerate with you both. So, Thomas, we are both on the side of "loving deep"............only one thought crosses my mind....Thomas..................................................................................................................... are we men or mice? :-) Lots of Love to you both. Terry .

Congratulations Thomas and Penny.I hope you never fall out of love. Thomas ,marriage is alot more than love alone. I do believe we fall in love more than once but we pick a partner to share love and life together. I have been married for 35 years and still love my wife as much now as the day I fell in love with her. I can relate from experience that love and marriage does not travel in a straight line and it is challenged on many fronts. A great achievement in this time and era and my wife and I toast you. Kind regards, Ziggy and Nola

I think virtually ALL generalizations are foolish, especially those about people. Statistically, none of us can know to any degree more than about 30 or 40 people. What sort of a sample profile is that to generalize about 6.7 billion??!? It's as foolish as the astrology charts in the tabloids. I would especially discourage making any decisions based on such a generalization! I hope you both enjoy the next 20 years together at least as much as the last 20! But even 20 years doesn't guarantee a stable marriage. The only way to do that is if you have Jesus Christ as a third partner - weirdly, the more you both love Him, the more you can love each other! Man was made in the image of God but corrupted by sin. Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour is the only way to start removing the effects of sin, and really discover who God made you to be! I don't say this as some religious nut, but the more I've tried it, the more I've found it works - just like the more I understand The Holy Bible, the more it makes sense of this world!

Congratulations Penny & Thomas! Believe it or not I remember the wedding day well :-) As for Love deep, love often..... I think everyone would choose deep.... But not everyone is lucky enough to find their true sole mate like you and Penny have! As you know I have had a few relationships ;-) But not one has come close to how I feel about Mel... So I just hope, like you Thomas - I stay deep! Stuart Ross, Stuart Ross

Hi Penny and Thomas Congratulations, It's great seeing strong marriages and couples staying together through love and not just commitment. In the Bible it says when you are married you become one flesh, I really feel that is a great description of the love between Anne and I. After 17 years of Marriage I can look back and see that I never really feel complete when we are not together. If I am away on business I always think of things like "Anne would love this" or Anne would say that". Even places of beauty I visit lose a little of their shine if she is not there to share it with me. Thank goodness for Skype, I now do daft things like walking round my hotel rooms with my Macbook open showing Anne what the room looks like, and the view out of the window. That is why it is important to have a work/life balance, we are on this Earth a short time, make the most of your time together and make those moments precious.

As is the wife so is the Life. That is an old Indian saying that rings true in as much as when you think of your life without the partner it is not just different but radically so. Man is essentially a vagabond and wanderer and although there are also men who like to stay put the general trend without women is that we men would be drifting aimlesslessly all around the globe. For you wanderers and risk takers this will ring a bell. I hope Thomas can resist tweeting to-day unless of course the bliss is so much he wants to share it in which we case we can certainly forgive him. Have a wonderful day Penny and Thomas.

Dear Thomas, please accept my heartiest congratulations on your 20th wedding anniversary. Regarding blog I can only say that "yes there is always a possibility that one can fall in love in first sight (it can be 4 seconds or even less). Of course I have been in love at least twice very deeply. At the moment again looking for someone to fall in love, with who, how, when or where I don't know. But one thing I would confess "Love is everything", it can be with your life partner,family friends or ones dreams. Thanks for this. Best Regards, Khalid

Congratulations to Thomas and Penny! Perhaps the reason for the dilemma is the use of the word "love." Prince Charles, when asked on his engagement to Diana whether he was in love, infamously replied, "Yes, whatever love means." And that is the point. That one little word means different things to different people. The ancient Greeks got around the problem by having several different words for "love." The first, storge is about being part of a family or group. Another is philia which describes the emotional affection between close friends. A third, eros will have to be left to your imagination. (My Presbyterian ancestors would not approve!) The fourth is agape. According to a Scottish minister, Professor William Barclay, "Agape has to do with the mind: it is not simply an emotion which rises unbidden in our hearts; it is the principle by which we deliberately live." In other words, it's not just what we feel, but what we do that matters. As William Barclay explains, agape includes: Long-suffering, or patienceKindness, friendliness, compassion, generosity and tendernessLack of jealousy; instead, counting our blessings, as there's always someone worse offSelflessnessHumility, politeness and good mannersUnselfishnessAvoiding conflict; this is not about backing down but not being the instigatorAcceptance and forgivenessEmphasising the good; this is about deliberately choosing to block out the negativeDiscretion; better to quietly mend than publicly rebukeTrust; belief without gullibilityOptimism; always erring in the direction of hope - and finally …..Endurance; when adversity challenges, again and again, true love does not give up. The trick - as always - is getting the balance right. The word "depth" of a loving relationship could be applied equally to all four of the Greek words but "often?" I wonder how many words the Greeks had for that! Have a great day! Doug Holman

Sally, that was so beautifully and , may I say, 'tenderly' put. So true, even from this males perspective; I believe I have and will continue to fall in love, hopefully for the rest of my life. Such an enjoyable feeling, being in love. The love felt when we are praised for doing something spontaneously when least expecting praise; the love felt when our offspring achieve something that to us is very meaningful; when our life-partner says, ' I loveyou' for no apparent reason other than to mean just that. And I'll still fall in love with any lady who I find attractive in more than just looks and get a nasty look from my partner when she catches me feeling that way!

Dear Thomas & Penny I hope you have a wonderful very romantic day and do not read this until at least tomorrow. It seems to me that how you love others depends very much how you love yourself and typically that boils down to 3 types: 1. If You are in Love with your own ego, you will fall in love often; but like the chattering mind of your ego, it will always be over quickly. This is clearly primarily but not exclusively a very male weakness. 2. If You are in Love with your own past and all the pain & baggage that lies there, you will tend to fall hopelessly, utterly & deeply in love with someone who is really not that interested in you. This is primarily a very female problem and, in my humble opinion the cause of many destructive relationships. 3. On the other hand, if you truly, deeply know & love the eternal, ever-present soul that you are, then you will tend to fall in love infinitely deeply and forever. You will tend to find partners who are kindred spirits too. That is the way it seems to me, anyway. once again, have a beautiful day and continue to do so forever. Namaste Frank

It has been great to meet you Thomas and Penny. 20 years and a great way to celebrate! You are two caring and loving people! All people lust within 4 seconds. Love takes longer. I have been in love and loved 3 times. When I met Claire it was "love (or was it lust)" at first sight,we love each other deeply and she is truly my soul mate. I have also been in love with my ex wife (together for 28 years). I have also been in love and loved by Pam (together for 2.5 years). So I have been and I am very lucky.

Dear Penny and Thomas, Enjoy your Spa-day together. Spa is for your yellow husband a great way to relax so less tweets Penny! I'm not an expert, but I was married two times. I met my first husband and father of my two beautiful daughters at age 15 and we stayed together for almost 31 years. From the day we met until the day he died every day worth living together and I learned loving him as much as possible. Four years later I met my second husband, we stayed together for only 4 years. Completely different relationships, but that I did only know after the separation and both experiences. Above all I learned that living in a loving relationship is a blessing. And that living alone is a blessing too. I understand that some people say falling in love can happen max three times so for the final I wait and see :-) Meanwhile I enjoy life every day and wish you both the same.

Firstly, massive congratulations to both Penny and Thomas, you are both wonderful people who clearly have love in your hearts and want to share it. As for being in love, falling in love and loving, it's down to semantics. I believe that we can love many, many times in our lives and without love life would be very shallow. Falling in love is all about the energetic connection between 2 people - and I do believe that, for most people, it is possible to get the first hint of that within seconds of meting somebody new. I'm sure we've all experienced that feeling when something inside of us reacts and we know that something special is going on - two people just fit together well, complement each other, challenge each other, support each other, finish each others sentences and keep each other grounded. Is this love, being in love or falling in love? I don't know and I don't care - because it sure feels good!

You Guys, 20 years. . . . Priveleged to have known you since the day after Thomas proposed! You are a really amazing loving couple. For anyone who doesnt know you at home, the hugs and kisses which exchange between you every moment, show the depth of love you share. You have endured and grown stronger through the challenges you have weathered over this incredible journey, seldom spending a night apart, and despite tiredness you always have time to listen to one another and utterly support each other. There have been many occasions when I have commented on your marriage as one of the rock solid foundations which inspire me to believe that things can be as they should be, and over those 20 years have shown that with a little loving kindness, it is possible to overcome everything. Even in adversity, you show each other love, not strike out to hurt pulling prisoners with you, but just simply accept, learn, love and move on. Just as it should be! Absolutely loving the thought of you guys today, having a wonderful champagne fillled, romantic "internet free" day, and wishing you oodles of love !!

Ah, Tina said 'What's love got to do with it" Quite a lot I think. You don't celebrate 20 years (or 22 in my case) without love creating a bond that's strong, but it's not unchanging. Nor should it be. I suspect that much of what people call love is not what I call love, and much of what I call love they call something else. By that I mean that what we each need and want and seek and find is a personal thing and loving is about finding the coincident things that make being together so much more special than being apart. Don't squeeze the toothpaste in the middle of the tube though...... Many congrats - Have a great day. William Buist Ecademy Supporting Business People

Thomas, you ask how many times? Only once... with hindsight. My other half and I are just 3 years behind you and Penny, and I still get that little skip in my heart when I see him as he picks me up from the train or whatever... Where have the past 16 and a half years gone? I don't know but I'm so glad it's him I've been sharing it with. I know I really really fell in love before... but those people aren't here with me now. And my heart was probably broken. No not probably... definitely! And this man is here, by my side... now ...how good is that!! So I fell properly just the once. The other times I was just practising... Much love to you and Penny for your big celebration. I bet both of you will enjoy the falling, once again...

Hey Thomas Congrats on the celebrations tomorrow, you too Penny. I fall in love several times a day. Fallling in love, to me, is seeing someone who is beautiful and not just skin deep beautiful. Someone who is beautiful all the way through. Passonate about something to the extent it rubs off on other people. Someone who can't stop talking about something, not because they want to sell it to you but because they love it through and through. Falling in love is different to being in love. I have only been in love with two people. The second person completes me; without her life wouldn't be half the fun, the challenge, the intellectual stimulation, the friendship. I still fall in love everyday and will continue to do so, be that with a skin-deep person or a person who displays such passion its hard not to fall in love with them. Hope you both have a fantastic day, come 1 August I know I will, celebrating 22 years of falling in love with the same person each day; long may it continue. Kind regards

Hi Thomas Congratulations on your special day tomorrow. I'd hate to stereotype and can only comment from my own reality.Gordon and I (you met us on the Retreat a few months ago) met on a management course in 2004. It was love at first sight but both wrongly assumed the other was happily married so it was not until 2006 when we worked together that we began our relationship. We were engaged within weeks and got married Christmas 2008.We knew in 2006 that we were starting a journey that would be exhilirating but with many twists and turns. And so it has turned out. We have faced some enormous challenges together that we would never have envisaged as an aftermath of getting together but we never regret it for a second. Four years on we are even more in love, and that has been strengthened and deepened by our trials and tribulations. I do not think being in love and loving someone has to be different. I may have thought I had fallen in love before but this man eclipsed those experiences totally. We only hope we are as lucky as you and look forward to our 20th anniversary. , Best wishes to you and Penny Alison Miles-Jenkins Consultant, Trainer, Speaker, Coach

Hmm, in answer to your question- I have fallen in love more times than you can count on one hand! Guess I am what you call a romantic and do wear my heart on my sleeve. Each relationship has been a great love where I have learnt; but it is with Steve who I decided to settle down with and knew that this is the person that I loved, trusted and wanted to create a family with...and the magic of my relationship with Steve is that we met on 28 January 2006, decided by the beginning of February (2006) that we wanted to get married in Las Vegas and had it all booked; got married on 4 May 2006 with Elvis walking me down the aisle and Steve singing, 'Just Can't Help Believin'. Whirlwind it was and each moment since then has never been dull. I knew that day on 4 May 2006 that all the best things in my life were about to unfold and they did as on 26 February 2007 our son Rory made his debut.

Congrats Thomas and Penny.....20 years, WOW..., now that's a record these days.... well done!! Its quite simple really, didn't someone say men and women are from different planets?? Now that's what makes it work. Opposites attract. As long as both of you are different, you have the recipe for a great relationship. Have a blessed time

What a great post! Congrats Thomas & Penny, I'm so pleased for you. Not sure if this answers the question of how men and women love differently but for me love is encapsulated in Plato's symposium. I'll paraphrase: "Once upon a time human beings were spherical creatures with two sets of arms, two sets of legs, and two faces looking in opposite directions. These humans were asexual comprising man, child of the sun and woman, child of the earth. But, these creatures became too powerful and threatened the gods. So, the gods sought a way to end the humans' insolence without destroying them. They cut the creatures in half. These creatures then spent the rest of their days wandering the earth desiring and searching for their other halves. On finding their other halves the creatures would throw their arms round one another, entwined in mutual embraces, longing to become one and whole again. And so it is with love; when one of us meets our other half, we are lost in an amazement of love, intimacy and affection. This is the expression of a very ancient need, a reflection of what we were originally. This desire, warmth and affection, and pursuit of the whole is what we call Love." Maybe corny but I love the above passage. For me it sums up the difference between attraction, infatuation and desire and a deeper kind of love and sense of belonging. I used it my wedding speech 3 years ago when I married the love of my life. Worked for me! ;-)

Congratulations to both of you - Connie and I are only at 17 years... I'm more like you Thomas. I tended to have longer, stable relationships in my "courting days" than my friends and that has translated to a solid, fulfilling marriage relationship too. Hard to say about how many times I fell in love. I thought I was in love with Lieutenant Yar from Star Trekfor a while but I didn't even think of it again until your post - late teen hormones... I would say 3 times properly maximum so that's me sorted then... So what does your source say about top tips / secrets of success? Have a great time...

Finally you've written something I am interested in, Thomas. And what a subject. Thanks. There can be no doubt whatsoever that the electric, addictive, besotted, fallen kind of love contains a very strong element of narcissistic projection whereby the chosen one takes on godlike qualities that combine elements of the type of adulation that we give to celebrities and leaders with the reflected glory we can really feel because this particular deity wants to be with little old me. Of courses it's a fantasy and cannot last and never does Merely loving, by contrast, is far more mundane in its dogged, day-to-day development of ever deeper appreciation of the loved one's finer qualities (and quirks) and in the long term becomes an exercise in commitment, loyalty, sharing, compromise, gentleness and understanding. I am dubious that many passionate loves mature into long term relationships, but it can happen if the addicts wake up before their gods show signs of crude humanity. My personal view is that both parties need to be capable of a deeper understanding of the nature of the other and that the significant differences between male and female in terms of means of and intensity of desire have to be accommodated by both parties in a generous way for anything to last. Relationships based on women nagging men to conform are always bitter and eventually lost. Relationships in which men expect never-ending electric ladyland are out of conformity with female hormonal reality. I met the third and greatest love of my life, the most marvellous person who has ever broken down my iron fortifications, right here on Ecademy, having resisted all the others who tried to get to know me while my late wife was dying. So, your years of social media pioneering haven't been entirely wasted, Thomas !!! You did it for me. Thanks for that. I don't know anything about love between gay people so I don't have any theory on that. I suspect it's pretty similar, whereas love from mother to child is most definitely something of a different order and needs another word entirely.

I'm glad to hear you don't conform to a stereotype Thomas. I suspect that it's women who most often encounter "men who love often" and are harmed by them who write those kinds of statements. (I'll make a quick exit before getting fluffed to death by life coaches and change consultants drawn by the compulsion to describe what love is)

Congratulations to you and Penny. Well Done. I do belive thats China that you should be giving each other....(sorry Penny Diamonds are later!) Define Love. 4 seconds sounds a very male perspective on anything. I cant see me making my mind up about anything in 4 seconds other than a gut feel....and true love takes longer. You cant truly know you love somone in 4 seconds.... I think "love" is plausible in many many relationships.........."Love" is the way you feel and care for somone Falling in love.....though....that to me is when you meet the person you know you want to be with for the rest of your life and they feel the same way. So no, I believe we (all people) can fall in love many times with many people in their lifetime . That said, I believe that falling in love and *being* in love are not the same, and that there are fewer people with whom we can find who we truly will be in love with for the rest of our lives. Falling in love I see as the first step to actually *being* in love with something, whether it is a pet or a person. From my experiences *being in love* lasts much longer. But then, there is unrequited love........gawd that hurts!!!! So if you only fall in love 3 times.......nope.....that would make for a cold heart surely?? Falling in love with the right person, your soul mate, well - that is magical. Its love that does not command, its not selfish, its not controlling, its not possessive, its...beautiful, equal, balanced, trusting and a partnership.............. I fall in love deeply and rarely.........and only truly have once............ I "love" lots of people though.....just simply for who they are and how they enrich my life........
