Everything has felt right so far. From the look in her eyes to the feel of her hand. I think my family are beginning to flip but it is meaningless, I will do it regardless of their opinions or lack of support. They can either be a part of my life or not, it is up to them.
Both PC's will have to go I think, every penny has to count right now as I don't know how long it will take to find a job down there.
Anyone want a nice celeron 300a or a K6-II 400? Both will come with some sort of warranty, depending on the spec and how clocked you'd like them .
Should all this scare me so much? Although it does scare me enormously, I sleep better now than I have done for months but it still isn't enough really.
All this is teasing my mind. Life doesn't seem to be too fair on a whole. Does it get better?
I remember a quote (not exactly, but you'll get the point) from a movie with Steve Martin (methinks "Father of the Bride") where an elderly woman gave him this this advice:
"...Life is like an amusement park. Some people like to ride the carousel, going round and round and round. I, however, prefer the ROLLER COASTER, with all its ups and downs!..."
My advice...hop off the **** carosel and grab a hold of the roller coaster car. Hold on tight but the ride will be fun and you will NEVER regret it!
Best of luck and:
"May you have a long, happy, healthy, and prosperous life filled with family, fun and love, and may your fondest dream never exceed your grasp."

Nothing feels as right as the first weeks/days of new Love. The emotional upheaval is so tremendous that ones who have never experienced it haven't the slightest clue of the magnitude. I for one support you in this decision, just keep in touch with the family even more than you have before.. This is very important, the future is uncertain at best, enjoy life to it's fullest..Don't be like so many others with regrets that you didn't TRY something in particular that you wanted desperately. When I met my wife no one liked the idea much either, but our attraction was so intense that nothing could pry us apart... We never spent a day apart for four years,, till I lost some sanity.. and.. well , another time.. Point is, go with your heart and observe your partner with your eyes also and make very sure that she is in as deep as yourself.. remember no one is perfect. Also mark the calendar on the day, you know the one,, the every 28 day thing.. send flowers or a card or just something nice to reassure that you're sincere.. I KNOW what you're feelling,, ain't it great ??? Plant a big one on the back of her neck for the ole corvette doctor,, take care,, keep in touch,, DrVette
I'll take two... CPU's
Richard...One day you will look back and remember this message...and know it!
Seems the biggest thing about a lasting relationship is one in which you don't have to make concessions, but everything is agreed on. Small compromises work sometimes.
If she has anything against internet usage, well, thats a bad sign because you seem to be changing your habits to please her. That does not work....ever! It is only a temporary change one will make out of lust, and will cause difficulty later.
One word of advice...if you have to change to be with her...dump her!
Now, if only I could find a girl who likes all the stuff I like! [/jealousy]
Ok, now, with all the cynical stuff said, GOOD LUCK!!
Rich, glad to hear you're happy. Hope you don't regret selling the machines. Even though you'll be machineless, visit the board when you can. *Rich is dragged kicking and screaming away from his K6-2*
Seriously, how much do you want for the 300A? And how much for the board??
If I can get cash, the 400 might be an option...
Alas - *true love is like the flower; get it while it's budding and hold on through the blossom - do not forsake her when she wilts and the petals fall to the ground - in time the petals themselves nourish a new flower springing up from the barren earth of your heart. ..
**that's an original BTW.
..on the material plane it cannot last .. but the "ride" is why you are here..embrace the passion.. embrace it! You do not know how blessed you are to find this one... perhaps you will carry this back into eternity.
one last caution... don't burn your bridges -
you may need (not want) to cross back over them...
"true love is like the flower; get it while it's budding and hold on through the blossom"
I think that could be the nicest way anyone has ever described something to me before.
"You do not know how blessed you are to find this one... perhaps you will carry this back into eternity."
I completely understand how blessed I am to have found her, and can only hope that we ride into eternity together.
Man, thats gotta be the sweetest and cutest thing I've ever heard a man say before <sniff>.
Thanks you guys. Nice to see some understanding and caring people out there.
Rich, you got to go with your feelings here.
But BBA is dead right about changing to please your mate - the change won't last even if the relationship lives forever.
Food for thought about the 'puters. - The amount they bring is a drop in the bucket when starting a new life. It will dissapear into household goods without a trace, and you BOTH loose something.
I don't mean just losing a hobby, either. You may not believe it now, but you'll see - everyone needs a place to get away from their mate occasionally. Having it gives you a place to go, and gives HER a place to send YOU!
(BTW, you'll be starting to need this around the 2nd week)
Been married 17 yrs now, and I guarantee that if I didn't have "getaway" activities, it would have ended long ago.
Rich, it sounds like you are in some sort of shock (in a good sense . I hope that one day I will have someone that is as special to me as she is to you.
Hey! I have no doubts in my mind whatsoever, but sometimes I need a little reassurance from those with such good judgement. The computer is going because :-
1. I need t osupport us both for a while, and need some money to start that off.
2. To keep the PC would mean a phone line, and therefore phone bills.
She has not and will not change me, I can be rather strong willed when I need to be. And I want to change nothing about her, apart from the distance between us and to help ease the problems she is stuck in the middle of right now.
As I said in my first post, I'm just here to get a touch of moral support and a little reassurance as it's getting a bit hard to find here, with my family. So I turned to my 'second' family.
But thanks for the (mostly) positive thoughts from you guys! It means a lot.
