Something really special and amazing came out of this ugliness, and I’m so thankful for it

I had everything just how and where I wanted it. I had a fruitful and fulfilling career, nice ride, clean and beautifully decorated apartment in the heart of the Bay Area, lifelong and loyal friends, kids all doing well…. I felt at the top of my game. I decided out-of-nowhere, that I wanted to be married. So, since my longtime lover and I had to part ways, I thought it would be a good time for me to try to meet someone I could make a life with.

It’s a red flag for me when someone is not inclined to maintain relationships with their former lovers

It certainly doesn’t bode well for us, considering that most romantic/sexual relationships end.

Allow yourselves to be a part of each other’s lives and lifestyles because nothing matters more than understanding someone’s way of life because that can either make you or break you as partners

I don’t believe that males and females can be just friends without something having been there or someone wishing circumstances were different and I always tell this to my boyfriend I am very uncomfortable with him having a deeper understanding and connection with his female friends then that he has or could ever develop for me. Now I cannot say society has influenced this feeling/decision but it has been experiences and that for me is an opinion that no one can change and one that I influence upon society because of the lack of mental and emotional relationships between partners.
