    Painful To Let Go

    I once dated a wonderful woman. She was educated, astute, wise, warm and fun to be with. But she yearned to be a mother. A year earlier I'd been divorced from a bad marriage and wasn't particularly looking to get too deeply involved again but was prepared to take the risk for...

    My Ex

    When I dated women exclusively, I dated a girl for 2 years, and her mother NEVER accepted me. She was rude to me, ignored my attempts to make conversation, etc. I finally gave up on trying to win her over. It's just as well- we broke up about 3 months after I decided to stop...

    You Can't Change Anyone's Mind

    We dated for over a decade, on and off, in secret. There was no point in letting our families know about us, since I went into the relationship refusing to contemplate marriage, and I was with someone else anyway. His mother did find out, but he was able to explain me away...

    Not Good...

    I dated a guy with a family that hated me. To be fair to them, they had liked me until we had broken up the first time. So when we started dating the second time, they were flat out mean to me. Left me sitting in the car in the garage in the dark once (because I wasn't allowed in...

    The Gee Family

     The Gee's were a very wealthy, intellectual family in N.H., but were from the country beginning with the letter 'G' (or rather 'D'). I'm not sure exactly if the word 'approval' is correct, but there just wasn't that certain *something* that clicked between me and his...
