    I posted to an earlier thread about, of all things, penis size. I thought it was a pretty good post, and I pulled my girlfriend over to the computer to read it. She thought it was pretty Darwinian, but basically, she agreed. Then she walked away to start dinner.

    And then it hit me. I'm attached. We worked things out. I'm not ambivalent about my relationship anymore, and I am truly sick and tired of leaving the metaphorical rake in the back yard where I can step on the head and knock myself unconscious with the shaft in the middle of the night looking for the cat in the backyard (and that leads to an even more apropos metaphor). I like this place I'm in, and I am not willing to let things I said about myself when my situation was different or things or people that I did not in fact end up doing fuck with my life. I am emphatically NOT looking, I am doing my best to be good, and honey, if you stumble upon this, I love you.

    -JK, who is AOK now.

    Say what you like about love, It frees up a considerable amount of brainspace. I can devote the mental energy that would otherwise go into getting into the pants of virtually everything with a vagina and a pulse to something useful.

    Also, she's really cute. Pretty ages better than Hot, but Cute ages best of all.

    Oh - I'm all about love! I've been married AND IN LOVE for 29 years. I am pretty much the Poster girl for deeper emotional relationships.

    I'm just surprised. Though you've been a member for only a short time, it is quite out of character from your former posts.

    ...but then, that's what 'love' does to ya'! - And it is nice to get that part of your life settled. Now you can move on to solving problems such as world peace, starvation in remote areas, .... ;)

    To quote a song of a few years back

    "Some say love is like a resting place
    a shelter from the storm
    it exists to give you comfort
    it wants to keep you warm
    and even if you lose yourself and
    don't know what to do
    the memory of love will bring you through!

    Sweet Christ. I have a longstanding rule about talking about my personal life online, and this is why.

    I'm giving this whole "domesticity" thing a shot. She's worth it.
