Hyperskeptic, wasn't it you who recently complained that people on this forum are so quick to suggest "pulling the plug" on long term relationships, or do i have you mixed up with someone else? Have you seen ANYONE do that in this thread yet (except for the original poster, Matt)? Does it look like anyone is ABOUT to suggest that they "pull the plug" in this situation? I hope you got your reality-check good on this, otherwise now is a good time for that.
I apologize for the small hijack, but it is relevant because sometimes you have to point things out to people when the opportunity presents itself and it isn't all focused on them.
