    My husband told me that he would marry me after I knew him for like a week.

    Clearly, he was right.

    The A's will do well again. They do a great job plugging in folks.

    I do like Dramaqueen's story of how her husband KNEW she was the one. Those stories are always fun to hear.

    Im gonna assume you like the Cardinals, I just wanted to say enjoy my favorite teams best pitcher Mark Mulder. I'm pretty sure you'll win the World Series if he stays healthy.

    I love moving... new places, new faces, just a change. I've already lived in two diffrent places (and towns!) in the two years I have lived out here and will be moving yet again in another year (following my job). That's one of the good things about having no attachments! Dunno if it makes up for all the bad things, though. *ponders*
    Yes. I could not have packed up and headed back to school if I had been attached. I may not have been able to take the opportunity to move to Idaho either when I had that.

    Well ah schucks, it looks like you'll get the chance to make a marathon work...

    To make this post back on topic, I'll say that I really feel for you guys who have moved so much! I can't imagine moving so much - I've lived in the same area for over 20 years (we moved here when I was VERY little ) and moved out on my own last year. That moving experience was enough to make me never want to move again! Hopefully things settle down for you, so you have a chance to really let relationships grow and develop....

I swear it multiplies in the closet), which often leaves me feeling adrift and somewhat disinclined to form attachments, as ripping them up and having people disappear from your life hurts, especially as it takes me so long to make friends.
    Gwyren, I totally know how you feel, I at one point lived in three states (AZ, OR, CA) in less than 10 months. I think you're on the right path, you seem to know what you want to do. It's tough to form attachments when you live the nomadic life, I've been in CA three years now and only now am starting to be willing to form attachments in my own life. Keep your head up, things will work out

It's not a bad thing to be softhearted and romantic, you just have to find the girl that will appreciate it I know it probably sounds empty, but there is someone out there who will appreciate how sweet you are, you just have to resolve not to settle for anything less!

    Now...as to THAT girl - well, let me just say I had an idea of how things would go on that trip, and it is a GREAT thing that things did not work out, but one of the better memories I have is when I asked her "Hey, on the trip to CA, would you like to go to Disneyland"?

    Maybe, one day, we ca all get together and share stories which require alcohol for the telling. I have little doubt that some here have some great ones.

    Becides, no one would want to hear mine (I hope someone believes this...). They are all of sadness, depression, and sometime large amounts of stupidity.

    I have an idea of what they mean. But that is one of those stories best shared over a beer. (Lot's of beer...that story involves me doing a few stupid things. :botox: )

    First posting as a new member. Found this topic interesting as I am still looking for my Mr. Right. I am finding that the older you get the harder it is to meet a man who shares the same interests (eg. anything Disney).

    I have also asked the same question of my happily married or attached friends, "how did you know he/she was the one?" The most common response was it just felt right (to tell you the truth, I have no clue what that means).

    Maybe my standards are too high? Read some interesting stories and good advices in this thread. Will take many of them to heart.

    OH please do, we could find a charity and plan a sponsership program for other MiceChatter to sponser us. 07 is a very realistic goal for me to be ready for a marathon. If I can make a marathon work- I can make a relationship work too!

    *Muah* MegarooFifi, lemme know when you get that tread generated and where and lets see how we can coordinate training, events and sponserships-etc.

    Official time will come out tonight but I ran it between 30-31 minutes. I was on pace for 28-29 but I majorly tweaked my muscles in the 3rd mile. Mile 1: 8:55
    Mile 2: 9ish Mile 3: 11ish-

    I run this course most mornings on a 10 minute pace and usually go straight to work, this time I sprinted the last quarter of a mile and screwed my muscles up so I am gonna relax and max today.

    I must say though, I totally agree with Momzilla59 and Gwyren - relationships are hard work! I get tired just thinking about it

    Mr./Ms. Right is a matter of timing, luck, and mostly pheremones. The concept of romantic love didn't come along until quite late in our evolution. It's a subconcious decision to fall in love with someone, but a concious decision to Stay in love with them. It's also a Lot of work to make a long time relationship last. We've been together since '81 and it's not always Prince and Princess Charming. There have been times when it would have been so easy to walk away. I'm always glad that neither of us has taken that first step.
    I do agree with that. A relationship is a lot of work! <ponders> Maybe that is why I have had so few of them?
