Hey bro, you don't have to convince me that you are/were sincere and in it for the long haul. Also, my referring to you as my victim was very tongue and cheek. I did beat up on you some when you showed up here. You also know why I did it. For every one of you there are 20 that show up here all dramatic and silly, and then we don't hear from them anymore. One is left with the impression of some flighty person who got bored or met someone else. So I like to try to scare the "my bf/gf is a jdub" types off. If I can do that they aren't in it for the long haul. You were a good sport about it all, and that is why I continue to be interested in your story.
So go easy on Why. It is just a little aggravating to those of us who are in it for such high stakes to have someone come in here acting all dramatic and desperate, only to realize they are not all that serious or even minimally invested in the outcome. It just kind of rubs people with REAL problems/pain the wrong way. And mostly our warnings are heartfelt and well founded.
BTW, how goes the battle? If you don't want to mention it in public, pm me.
Hope things are going well.
