What personal event changed your outlook on love?Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
A friend and his wife showed what love was one weekend at a dragstrip. Unusually for him it was just him and his wife, at that point they were at 30+ years of marriage. They spent the weekend like they had been in love for 6 months, was hard to get him to go racing.
She died about 5 years ago from cancer, we were discussing my dating adventures recently and I asked him if he still missed her. He said it does not happen as often but a couple times a month the grief still stops him dead in his tracks.

Not sure if I thank them for showing me that, can I find a love like that before my years run out?
Have met someone who may be the one, here's hoping.

^^^ lol. I watched part of Broke Back Mountain on the weekend..true love and lust between to men. Maybe that isnthensameis to go for those that still have such a deep hate and still feel pain from head to toe. Maybe that dead heart can be started again....by switching teams.

I am sort of lucky in that the vast majority of my friends are long term marriages; 25 years, 30 years, more. My brother and his his bride just had their 40th, my sister is at 28 years. My parents made 63 years before my mother died. I come from good stock, good attitudes and aurrounded myself with positive role models.

Watching my parents changed my outlook very, very early in my own marriage.

You first.

I just need to see that couples aren't exactly the great end result, every so often. It reminds me of a date night that I had with my ex. She hated everything I planned that night. From the restaurant I chose, to the place we went to after that had entertainment.

(Before you think it, these were very nice places)

I got jump on badly about it. At the end of the argument, I swore that I'd never plan another night out again. She gets to plan it if we go out. Well, 10 months later, I finally got an apology. But the damage was done. And she found out that I meant what I said.

Yes, pride goeth before a fall. But, I wouldn't have treated a dog like I got treated that night. I watch her treat others like that. This was a nasty lesson she got to learn.
