Excellent advice, Pamela. I applaud you example of success. Thanks for answering.
That's wonderful to hear, FatFreddysCat. I think you're a keeper. You guys are in the minority. Thanks for answering.
Absolutely, Heather, kudos to you for getting to know each other by dating for good while. Thanks for answering and sharing your success story.
I really appreciate your sharing that very personal story, Billie. I agree you definitely needed to know each other better and maybe living together would have worked as it has for many others, despite what the research says. Thanks for answering.
Jan, The older I become, the stronger the need to share something of my life that might be useful. It's often hard to judge appropriateness, but as this point, I'm all "oh-what-the-heck..." It feels worth the risk.
Thanks for your answer, lburmaster, another great example of it working out. You're right about commitment level. I found that out in the research for my hub.
Interesting take, Bishop55. I can understand that the added pressure and expectations made it difficult. Thanks for answering.
Wow. You've been through it and back. Thanks so much, Crafty, for sharing and giving a heartfelt answer with a happy ending.
