    Yes, it's right, so here's it to all those who still have crushes on me (of course you may still have them, but your chances have just shrunk by about 99 %):

    I'm officially off the market for guys now.

    That doesn't mean I've become lesbian, no! But during a short, spontaneous easter vacation, me and my love interest Frank have decided to pick up our loose ends and tie the knot, so to say. I have applied for an internal transfer to a Seattle job position, and if everything goes fine, June 1st will be the day I move up the coast.

    I think it was time for me no longer to test the waters, but jump right in and see how it works out. I think this has somewhat come on my horizon since January, and confirmed during February, and now I'm feeling like I have to risk this step: It's an opportunity I don't want to miss out, and if I don't do it now, I think I will never do it.

    I don't know for how long this relationship will last, but I'm pretty sure it will last long enough to make a move up the coast worthwile. We're going to see whether we're compatible for daily life (I think I've passed my test of that during my Christmas vacation), but I'm pretty sure. I've adapted worse conditions.

    If everything goes fine, I'll move up during the last week of May. That's 48 days from now - wish me luck!

    Congratulations !!

    I hope everything works out and you are very happy ! .....


    Some advice given by others at 2 different showers I've attended:

    Don't take Anything personally.
    Don't go to bed angry at each other (I know, that's an old one)

    Try to find humor in the worst situation to diffuse the stress.
    Ignore 99% of the little things he does that you find irritating.
    (easier said than done :smile: ...)
    (Our 22nd anniv. is this May)

    Will you still post here at LPSG ?....or lurk maybe ?

    I know I find this place addictive even though on many days I only have 5 minutes at the most to check in here.

    I'm very happy for you, Claire. I can't say i'm surprised after reading about him in other posts; you've been into each other for quite some time. I'm just tickled to see you using the "L" word and jumping in with both feet. What a lucky man. Don't you let him forget it. :smile:
