Good luck DSD. My brother and his wife went through that, and are now coming through the other side and doing well now. They even went so far as to live separately for a while, but are now back together. I was pretty cynical about it and once she moved out I didn't think they'd make it, but things seem to have worked out.
Thanks. Actually it looks like the man is starting to court me
I woke up yesterday to find he had created a scavenger hunt for me to find little home made valentines with silly puns. I haven't had that much fun in years. And he invited me to go on a brewery tour tonight.
We're going to take it very slowly, but like I said earlier, I think "separating" was for the best. He's working on himself and both of us are learning not to take our love for granted. And if forcing us to step back and take things slowly brings out more of what he showed me yesterday, I'm all for it =)
