Firstly, my profound thank-yous to Tamaku, Naughty Feeling, GNM, Rox and Mwistar who responded when I sought counsel. It was at a time when it was unclear to me how to handle the situation I found myself in my relationship. (By the way, all 5 of you guys have something in common with M. Figure it out for yourselves, lol.)
Secondly, let me say that I did listen to what everyone said, but as the saying goes, "who feels it, knows it". I know M, (or at least I think I do :-)), he isn't a monster. And although I do think that he can be insensitive sometimes, in actuality he is a gentle soul, who seems to share my desire for a lasting, meaningful and ecstatic relationship. He saw that I was upset and he came to me on bended knee. We have talked at length and it appears that finally it has dawned upon both of us the potential that exists for the relationship that we share. He has a way of warming his way back into my affections and I've been away from this blog for a few days because I've been so busy getting tickled in all those nooks and crannies that only he knows about.
Anyway, I just thought I should report back. Things are back to normal for the time being and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)
