    How did that work out?

    Better than it had any right to. That was in 1991 and we still like each other.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Wow. How do you like someone for that long? Did you two have a relationship at one point?

    I married him about six months after he proposed. Still married and have four kids. My husband says the secret is to marry someone you like and then be nice to them.

    That is awesome! Congrats. Might I ask, between you two, which is more inward-looking? I'm trying to describe "introverted" without using the word.

    I don't have commitment issues, unless we are talking about marriage, which I don't feel up for right now. I pretty much wanted LTRs as soon as I realized that I was interested in women. 'course it took me longer than usual to figure that out. I felt pretty asexual until junior high or so. Looking back, I remember feeling attraction to women before that, but I didn't realize what it was because it didn't feel the way I though it was "supposed" to feel. I think that sort of prolonged asexuality really isn't that weird for IXTX types in general.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    i don't know if i can even believe people have issues with commitment. i might just think that they're with the wrong person if it dosn't come naturally. is that absurd? or does anyone else think so?
