    Oh, yeah, it still hurts. But yet, I don’t know, it is more of just a disappointment that it didn’t work out like I had hoped – and in myself, for believing he was ready for all this after just a few months of talking and visits. @MissDre, we can’t make people figure out their shit… but what we can do is not believe someone who says after a hot second “oh I want to move to you and have babies.”

    Yes, it has a downside, ha! I’m done with my reckless abandoning ways, though. Done done done.

    Thanks, guys. It’s OK. He, essentially, freaked out, realized he was not ready for any of this (he had dealt with a lot of hard things right before starting something with me – or didn’t deal with them, as the case proved), and just ended things. It’s easy to end a long-distance romance. You just stop calling and you change your plans to move. He was supposed to move here at the end of February. It all came to an end as quickly as it started. A few weeks ago he came out for a visit and brought two bags with him to leave behind at my place (taking advantage of Southwest’s free bags), but when he stepped off the plane he said he just didn’t feel right; he felt out of place and like he was just waking up from a dream and realizing he’s not ready for any of this. At the end of the weekend, he flew back home with those two bags. It was sudden and caught him by surprise as much as me. But I, shockingly, got over him fast. For the first time ever (really, ever) I’m not wasting a second wishing he would want what I want or that he can change…. I heard him, I believe him, and we’re moving on. It’s a little more complicated than that but there you go for now!

    That is very cute, Lianne!

    For the record, I am never going to date again – well, not for awhile, and nothing rushed. I am such an idiot – I fall so fast and so hard, and it’s never right. On that note, the new/old guy from home that I’ve been talking to/seeing/planning a future with since, oh, I guess we started talking in September it was? We’re done. I’m ok with it being over, but I’m not ok with how quickly and hard I fell and all the stupid, stupid things I do when that happens. I’m so grounded, for the most part, in all other areas of life, but not when it comes to dating and love. So, I quit, for now!

    Oh I always have to think hard about what OP means… What is it again? I keep forgetting.

    Hiya! Piping in from vacation to say: spill it, Wendy I’m dying to hear! The suspense is killing me.

    oh i have an idea, you can log on as Anonymous and then just say the name.  The only way people would be able to make the Lemongrass connection is if they read all of these comments.  But come on, no one is reading our back-and-forth.  Do it, do it!

    @lemongrass, I’m now dying to know your first name.  Come on, just whisper it to me here…

    I don’t think I’d take a future husband’s last name because my first name is too weird.  It wouldn’t go.  Except I had a friend in college with the last name DePersia and I always said I wanted to marry him and take his last name because then my name would sound like an exotic porn star, and geographically correct.

    Re: the “when do you actually say your last name” question, now that I think about it, not very often.  I say my full name when I appear before a judge “Your honor, Addie Pray for the defendant.”  That’s the only time I can think of!  I am going to pay attention now and see how long I go before I say my last name.

    But how did people find DW after the Frisky?  Because Wendy’s not on the Frisky anymore, right?
