Default New life

My prior relationship was vetoed by Driver after 8 months. While we still love each other, we honor his decision. Life must go on, however.

SW said she would never be interested in a relationship. This changed after we conversed with a couple looking for a another couple. This has led to awesome conversations for both self and SW with the opposite new partner.

There is a good 4 way connection that has developed. I actually grew up 50 miles from Cheddar and Marine. Marine and I are very compatible. SW and Cheddar are very compatible.

We will meet them Motherís Day weekend. I will be with Cheddar and SW will be with Marine for the weekend. Cheddar and I are looking forward to taking our conversation further. The goal for both couples is the development of a long term relationship where we can do things as a foursome, then split up and go with our new partner for other activities.

It has been awesome for me to see the joy that SW is experiencing. The same joy that I had with Teach. Marine has been good for SW. SW has opened herself up to many new potentials and experience.

Life goes on!

Hi Retired,

It is great to hear that you and SW have both started a new relationship with another couple (Cheddar and Marine). Perhaps this'll even help you with your grieving process of breaking up with Teach. Keep us posted!

Sincerely,
Kevin T.

Sometimes closing one door opens another. Sorry things went the way they did with Teach though.

Default Update

Cheddar and Marine are an awesome couple. Only 1200 miles apart. It looks like we can swing it about once a month. We meet, exchange spouses and go our separate ways. It has been great for both of SW and Self.

In this process, we met another couple where the lady and I had a phenomenal Connection. He and SW Enjoy one another but his lady and I are more enfolded and date as able. All four of us get along well. I will update as this progresses.

I still deal with my loss. I am blessed that each lady has also been in the same boat as me. They understand. Pretty amazing.
