Ah the blank stare... seen it
I think those of us who have mono partners remember that look well.
Everyone has given great ideas and advice, I just want you to know you are not alone and to keep at it. Keep moving forward in honesty and respect. There is nothing more you can do, besides trust. Trust that what is meant to be is meant to be and that as long as you can sit in your skin and know that you are moving towards your goals in life and that you are open to what comes; that is it really; that is the meaning of life!
