I had some legitimate fears about things in her that I didn’t understand at the time, but I knew I loved her and wanted her.

She was very much in love with me, and she wanted to marry me. All that was left was breaking the news to the other woman — who had been hoping all along that I’d end up with her.

I felt terrible telling her that I was going to marry someone else.

Because of the way I was raised, I have a very difficult time not giving other people what they want, emotionally, even when it’s not right for me. Even though I knew I loved the first woman, I felt that I must be doing something wrong.

The second woman was something of a “project.” Her life had been a mess when I met her, and I had invested a tremendous amount of time in “rescuing” her.

In the spring and early summer of 2008, the first woman and I had talked a lot of marriage.

The only positive outcome is that it forced me to get really serious with myself and work hard with a good therapist to figure out the reasons why I’d done some of the things I’d done. Even though I’d lost my “true love,” the other woman was still there and waiting.

I eventually started seeing her regularly, but there was never any real feeling or connection there, despite the fact that I tried to force it.I’ve mentioned a bit of this story before, but I’m going to tell you a very intense part that I’ve never had reason to tell before. I was in love with the one I was dating at the time, but I was scared of some things I saw in her (and things I saw in myself, too, even if I wasn’t honest enough with myself at the time to see it that way).There was another woman who I’d had a very odd relationship with before I let myself meet and date the first woman.You can share the profile on all the popular social websites, but clicking the SHARE button at the top of each profile.The POTW will be the profile with the most recent comments.She’s dated both of them, but the relationships have been very different. She saw things in him that she knew needed work — for both of them. There aren’t the highs and lows, but there also isn’t the magical connection.
