My life, and the date it happened. Not very original I'm afraid.

A look back at the first tjme I was faced with infidelity. Long Ago, Far Away.
When you put someone on a pedestal, they quickly learn two things. The view is mighty good from up there, and it is a fine vantage from which to kick.

I suspect "ICannotFuckingBelieveThis" was rejected. I remember trying several before this one.
I was in so much shock and rage when I joined I'm amazed my name isn't BallsInABlender.
I don't love it but it is good to be reminded of where I was then and how far I've come now. I'd love to be able to change our names though. Not that I can think of one.

well I was sad and I like cats....
Pretty simple really. I even forgot to capitalize the "S"
I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.
If this isn't what I consider soulmate crap, I don't know what is.

I believe it was very soon after dday, maybe within days?
I was in shock, I couldn't accept that this was possible.
I remember thinking, "h would not do this, this can't be real"
It just popped into my head.
Everytime I type it I remember how I felt then...
Kind of wish I could change it now. Maybe to, never mind, it would probably be rejected!
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
I would now like to be known as Can!

Mine is so ridiculous.
I type really really fast and HATE to edit.
So being that I am trapped financially and that we had been together for 25 years it was supposed to be Trapped25, but because I didn't edit it is Trappe25....uggh

H and I had just spent a week together at a hotel together to begin R, and and I became hopeful but was still deeply hurt. Others already had variations of HurtButHopeful, so I added a *?* to mine, since I was tentative whether Mr. HBH had it in him to endure the rollercoaster ride of R.
Reconciliation means that we both are authentic and vulnerable. I still have my H, and he's a better man than ever!

I didn't want a user name associated with anything else I do. So I picked something I like and the year.
Plus, if this is google-able, I suspect you're going to get about 25 million fruit hits before you ever get to a user name.

Well during the A I was working for a landscape company, one of my jobs was plants stock manager.
I chose Ninebark because it is a very hardy plant that can withstand extreme situations and has a bark that peels off to reveal something new and wonderful underneath. So I feel like a Ninebark.
BS (me) 40
WH - 48
Married 12 years

Separated....hopefully divorcing soon.

Mine is easy...
When I got here I was still consumed with the karma bus hitting the OW.
I now know I was way off. I intend to get my membership so I can change it, just not sure to what.
I am so not creative.

It was exactly the way I felt at the time. As though I had been merely filling in for the one he really wanted

I picked mine because I felt like I didn't have anyone who understood what I wanted with our marriage. All of my family and friends want me to just pack her shit and tell her to kick rocks. Sucks when you have plenty of family around and you feel like you have no one to turn to (No12turn2)

Knowing the details doesn't always make you feel satisfied. In my case, it just made me want to burn a perfectly good couch!

It is from the Bhagavad Gita. I like the combination of the words, although it has a negative meaning.
