The last story I will write on EP. It's sort of the end of an era for me. I first came here in June of 2011. I was lonely in a marriage that was a sham. We weren't ready to walk away from it yet. Maybe we hadn't finished hurting each other? Maybe we didn't have enough money to separate? Maybe we had been together for so long, we couldn't imagine not being together? Or our elderly little furball kitty? What would happen to her?

Well, I found support and friends. I found out that I wasn't alone in a marriage where I was alone. I even met someone and we hit it off. We met in person later that summer. We had a lot of fun together but in the end, it wasn't meant to be. He is still a good friend. I am grateful to EP for him.

I made more friends and my husband and I would claim to work on our marriage here and there. He wasn't a bad guy. We just weren't a good match. That statement didn't ever really hit me until I met "Bryan" late December 2014. Well I met him about 2 months earlier but he was such a jerk...I'm going to change it.

He was the missing piece of the puzzle that I had been working on since my earliest memories....I had been trying to make all the pieces fit....And by this time "most" of them had... Friends, career, likes, dislikes, even romances but there was something missing....and it made me ache inside....And then he filled it. Since then, my husband and I have gotten divorced....Happily as he is with someone else (and had been for a long time). I moved from TN To MD to be with him. And we were tested by so many circumstances....We later decided to move to Las Vegas. Throughout it all. Throughout every uncertainty, one thing held true. He was my missing piece.

We went thru with our trip to Vegas and arrived last Saturday. I am so happy that I got to write this story while EP is till here. To anyone that is scared or lonely or lost. Or, feels as though nobody on this planet will ever understand them or love them for who they really are. Please believe me, you are wrong. You don't have to settle. Or maybe you do in order to find the person you are meant to be with ? I don't know. Or maybe you are looking for something else. Some meaning in your life? A family? Children? Don't ever give up. Find a way to trust your journey. I still doubt mine all the time. And I know so much better. It's hard. It's a challenge. I tend to see the glass half empty. You don't have to.

I have met hundreds maybe thousands of people here in the past 5 years and learned from so many. For however long this is up.... For whoever finds themselves virtually walking these empty halls at night and stumbles upon this. I wish you nothing but love and happiness all of your days.

Goodbye EP you were good to me.

I can honestly say that I will not miss EP. I already have, right here beside me, the very best that EP had to offer. Now that I have you in my life, EP has nothing left to give. I came to EP just looking for some entertainment and I found a life-partner, a true love, a companion on the journey. I no longer need EP. I am grateful to EP for bringing the two of us together but now that this has been accomplished, I am happy to say goodbye to EP. Rest in peace, EP.

yeah but baby you don't get waves of insomnia that last for weeks...lol.....I guess I will have to find a new place to cause trouble in the wee hours....I love you so much more than I imagined I could... so there!

My pretend account has me at age 22....I wonder if it will stay that way....Timeless and twenty two....Not bad?
