Great advice for any relationship - right

[QUOTE=sage;45915]3. Examine yourself and what you want long term."

Ummmmm...........what you 'want'. But isn't this based on what you believe to be your available choices ? So if this is a new, foreign choice - do you route back to 'education' or default to the known ?

LOL - I don't know hun - does it ?

I see the 'line' as coming across a poly option totally unawares, giving it an honest evaluation, and going forward. AND not coming back (as in viewing it as an impossible or impractical option)!

Not sure whether you are coming back or not ? I hope not - and for all the right reasons. Time will tell -right ?
