    •  Thanks but I did try again - (3+ / 0-)

      and that one lasted less than 4 years, too. Having been the dumper (#1) and the dumpee (#2), I've decided that I'm just really bad at it.

      But I have nothing but immense respect for couples who voluntarily agree to be stuck with someone they're unrelated to for twitcher or poorer/'til death do they part (that's what makes it marriage, fercryingoutloud). It's an amazingly beautiful commitment when it works (but can be witheringly painful when it doesn't).

      Still - I'd love to go back to visit Bisbee - it sounds like a breath of fresh desert air!

      •  I've failed a couple times myself. (4+ / 0-)

        Now I am living with a partner, and that is working best of all.  We're thinking of going and getting Civil Unionized when it becomes official (May 2nd), to stand with so many of our gay friends (we're both straight)...but then we don't want to mess up a good thing, so I don't know if we will.

        •  Good for you! (4+ / 0-)

          I made a decision to take some time off from relationships back in the late 90s. It worked so well for me that I've kept it that way lo all these years later. Sometimes I fear I'm becoming a Crazy Poodle Lady, but then I look at this face and remember how good my life is -
