It's like there's this person you want to be for other people, to make them happy and to make them proud of you... And then there is yourself.. Sometimes its hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.

That can be a good thing, when you've internalized all of the best qualities of what people you like find admirable about you.

I've been reading your posts lately. You seem like a sensible man! :-)

Hi, nice to meet you. Please do feel free to say hello to me. I'm curious as to how you found my journal and when you started reading here?

Hello! My name is Doreen and I got to your journal through Bill's journal who is friended by tamnonlinear, who I read and comment on, on a regular basis. I was just browsing. I'm so sorry if I intruded, but your icon is really awesome and I wanted to read more of your journal. I should have introduced myself before I posted; I'm sorry.

Ahhh, thank you for explaining. Welcome.

Frankly I did find it a bit odd that someone who had never expressed any interest in my thoughts was suddenly posting to someone *else* in my journal. Made me wonder. I'm also always curious how people get here.

*soft chuckle* I certainly understand your concerns. I generally don't just post "out of the blue" in any journals I'm not familiar with, and i should have done an intro first. I've actually been stalked online, so I can understand how this would seem odd. I've also seen you on various poly lists, but I am a reader more than a poster there. Anyway, I am sorry to hijack this post. I hope it's okay if I read and post once in a while. If not, I understand and I wish you well. Thanks! :-)

Oh no, I'm a complete raving lunatic. (He said, with a grin.)

Seriously, thanks for saying so. I do try to be sensible most of the time.

Realistically, how often do you see/experience that as the case? Don't get me wrong, the ideal is a wonderful thing. I don't often think that is the case, however.

I think you do know the angle that I was thinking of this from.

Yeah, I know you're still feeling the loss of your romance and not happy that it seems he wanted somebody you just couldn't be. On the other hand, I do know a fair number of people who had the good fortune of having friends and family whose hopes for them coincided with reality and good sense. So it does happen often enough to be something more than rare.
