I'm Nancy and my hubby and I were (until recently) in a V with him as the hinge. I think you can read and read and you'll still find yourself experiencing things that are new or you'll need to read more about. Alot of talking is in order all through the process of finding someone and while working through abandonment issues.
We started out thinking that we would only welcome that wonderful "unicorn" that everyone is looking for and soon found out that it just wasn't what we were given to experience. So we have learned not to limit ourselves to our own grand ideas of what life should be like and just "go with the flow" as they say...
Good luck with what ever path you choose, and you'll find alot of info here that will be super useful.
