The Incurable Romantix Love Pattern Screens

The Love Patterns areas is divided into three separate screens:

  1. The HISTORY AND PATTERNS screen is designed to give you a visual guide to the patterns you may be following in your relationships.

    The first step is deciding what categories are important to you. When you choose the "Love Life" button you'll be taken to the "Pattern Analysis Categories" screen. Here you will choose 12 categories that you will use for your analysis. You can decide on these categories in two ways: by clicking onto some of the 24 categories that have already been suggested, or by adding your own categories in one or more of the 12 empty category boxes at the right of the screen.

    When you add your own categories, you can analyze almost any aspect of your love life. You can be dead serious or totally silly -- it's up to you.

    You will use the "Relationship Analysis Sheet" to grade each of your relationships on the 12 categories you chose on the "Pattern Analysis Categories" sheet. Once you are satisfied with the "grades" you have given a particular relationship for all 12 subjects, click the "Next" button to move on to the next relationship analysis. If you have no more relationships to analyze, click the "Summary" button to move to the summary screen and see what patterns it may show.

  2. YOUR BASIC NEEDS allows you to uncover what you really want to get out of a relationship. You will analyze up to six different areas of relationships: "Short-Term," "Long-Term," "Love," "Sex," "Romance" and "Marriage." Within each of these six areas you will grade your needs from 0 to 9 in each of 10 categories. The program suggests categories for you, but you can always change as many of them as you want. Once you have decided on your categories for any particular area, you will give grades to how important the category was to you in the past as well as how important it is to you now. When you calculate, you receive a colorful visual graph clearly showing your priorities.

  3. WHAT YOU OFFER allows you to get a grip on what you are prepared to contribute to a relationship. The screen suggests 10 categories, but you can change any or all of them to better suit your own needs.

The Incurable Romantix Separations Screens

The three Separations screens deal with three different aspects of separations:

  1. Fighting Against Separation

  2. What to Do When You Want to Separate

  3. Surviving Separation

Here are a few sample topics from "Fighting Separation":

--------Unless something happens to make the relationship improve, who do you think will make the first move to end the relationship: you, the other person, or either of you?

--------Think carefully. What signs have you seen that make you think the relationship is in jeopardy? How long has it been since you realized there may be a problem?

--------Have the two of you been talking openly about the fact that the relationship is in danger, or are you brushing the issue aside? Does one want to talk while the other doesn't?

--------Do you have a strategy for getting you both to start or accelerate constructive talks that could help things?

--------Are there any people (step-children, friends, in-laws) who could or should possibly be included in the discussions?

--------Have you at least investigated counseling? Have either you of your partner suggested counseling?

--------Are there any outside issues (like a person's employment) that, if solved, could make the relationship improve? Do you yourself have control over any of these issues?

      The Incurable Romantix Fun and Fantasy Screens

      The Automatic Love Letter Writer with its five "Passion Levels" is shown in full on the Incurable Romantix Screenshots Page. It's a lot of fun and can give you many romantic ideas. You can print out the love letter as it is, or move it to the Windows Clipboard so you can import it to your word processor and customize it for your sweetheart.

      The Automatic Love Poetry Generator works along the same lines. Each time you click the button on the screen, you get a new romantic poem which you can print out.

      The Official Incurable Romantix Sweetheart Application form is just that: you can officially apply to be someone's sweetheart. Just press "Print" and the form will come out ready for you to fill in (it's much more romantic to fill it out in longhand). On the form you will attest to your love, indicate how you will express that love, etc. There is even an official place for a notary seal!
