Saw your post on long distance relationships. I'm in one also, and I agree on that post. Except, I think when you have the emotional and mental connection, it enhances the physical aspects enormously. It makes you fall for and be aroused by there flaws a lot. So, having both the emotional and mental increases the anticipation of the physical also when you see them. All 3 balance each other out then.
I couldnt agree more. This is by far the best relationship that I have ever been in. As you expressed, even his flaws are cute lol and we find different ways to keep the fire burning. I work a lot so this relationship is ideal for me… however I do realize that at some point one of us will have to move… I am going to see him next week and I am beyond excited!!! My physical has completely taken hold of my mental lol! Good luck to you and your relationship!
CHICAGO, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — While on his way to New York this morning to celebrate the publication of his long-awaited memoir “SoulaCoaster,” multi-platinum R&B superstar R. Kelly was taken ill and had to return to Chicago for medical treatment. Initial indications are that he is suffering from complications from surgery he had last year to treat an abscess on his vocal cords. As a result, Kelly has had to cancel appearances on “The Jimmy Fallon Show” and NBC’s “Today” as well as a book party that was being held in his honor. It is unclear how long Kelly may be sidelined.
On the third anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. R. Kelly shared a story withPeople.com about the first day they met — and how they ended up at a Chicago mall.
Kelly details in his upcoming book “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me” about how he wrote “You Are Not Alone” for Jackson, and met him when Jackson began recording the song.
"He looked at least eight feet tall," Kelly wrote. "He looked like an avatar. He was wearing a black mask over his face. Only his eyes were showing.
Finally, Mike walked over to me. He looked in my eyes, opened his arms, and gave me the hug of my life, whispering to me in his lighter-than-air, soft, high voice. ‘The world’s gonna be singing this song.’
"I blurted out something silly like, ‘Congratulations on everything you’ve done, Mike. Congratulations on being Michael Jackson.’
"Just about then, Bubbles the chimp pranced into the room. In my mind, I called Bubbles ‘Trouble.’ The chimp made me nervous.
'He's friendly, isn't he, Mike?'
'Oh, yes, he's not going to hurt you.'
'Anyway,' I said, 'I'm just glad you like the song.'
'I don't like it, Rob. I love it. I don't want to change one thing. I want to sing it just the way you wrote it. You captured me beautifully. That's the reason I came here. We can get started just as soon as I do my vocal warm-ups.'
“‘If you excuse me for a minute,’ I said, ‘I’ll be right back.’
"I walked to the bathroom and just fell out on the floor. I broke down and cried. It wasn’t that Michael Jackson was singing my song; it was that Michael had felt how I’d caught his spirit. Michael Jackson had come to Chicago to work with me!
“‘Rob,’ he said in that high, singsong voice, “would you mind coming in here and singing backgrounds with me?’
"Mind? Are you kidding? Michael Jackson was asking me to sing with him!
"I had to practically stop myself from running to the vocal booth. I paced myself so I could walk slowly, but in my heart I felt like a little girl.
"When we started to sing, the blend was perfect. We were butter and toast. He did that some rocking motion I’d seen him do on ‘We Are the World.’ Sitting there next to me — my voice over his, his voice over mine — I tasted heaven. Heaven on earth. Brother, this is as good as it gets.
“‘You know, Rob,” he said later that afternoon, “sometimes it can take me a month to get a song where I want it.’
“‘Me, too, Mike,’ I agreed. ‘Sometimes it takes me more than a month.’
“‘I’m glad you understand. You’ll be patient with me, won’t you?’
—I’ll be whatever you want me to be, Mike. It’s still like a dream for me.”
Then, the King of Pop made an unexpected request
“‘Can I ask you something else?’
“‘Is there a mall around here, Rob?’
“‘Just a couple of blocks away.’
“‘Would you go there with me? I love malls.’
“‘I love ‘em too, Mike. Let’s roll.’
This is where, out of respect for the King of Pop, we don’t make a “What happens when Michael Jackson goes to the mall with R. Kelly” joke. Back to the story:
"With Bubbles and the security team in place, we went to Water Tower Place, one of the nicest malls in Chicago. Michael headed straight for the Disney store where he was fascinated by a larger-than-life statue of Donald Duck hung above the entrance.
“‘That’s beautiful,’ said Michael. ‘Do you think they’d sell it to me? I’d love to have Donald Duck for Neverland.’
“‘Couldn’t hurt to ask,’ I said.
"Of course Michael Jackson walking into the Disney store caused a near-riot. When the manager appeared, Michael couldn’t have been sweeter: ‘Is there any way I could buy that Donald Duck?’ he asked.
“‘I’m afraid not, Mr. Jackson. It’s permanently built into the front of the store.’
“‘Oh, that’s a shame,’ Michael said politely. ‘But thank you anyway, sir.’
"I’d never met anyone with better manners.
The pair worked on perfecting the song over the next three weeks and spent time chatting together in the studio.
"The experience of working with Mike was drama-free. Every night after he left the studio and got in his van, people were hanging out the windows of office buildings and hotels, stretching their necks to get a glimpse of him. He’d always stop and wave.
"When the job was done and it was time for him to leave Chicago, he gave me another hug and said, ‘You’re my brother.’
