I just wanted to write a quick note to say welcome to any and all new members of this group. I am hoping to get some conversations going with women in similar situations that want to vent or just talk to others. I am completely open with anything that you all want to discuss, and I hope to make some friends while I'm here. I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, and I have never felt this way about a man in my life...not even my ex husband. I am happy with my decision and would not trade my boyfriend for the world. He does have some growing up to do, but he is very willing and he loves me to death. What more could I ask for?
