    Thumbs Up Well, I *really* didn't think I'd be posting in here...

    But... uh... can I refer to my sigpic and leave it at that?

    No?

    Umm... DB surprised me by flying up to see me this weekend and hash things out. I was perfectly ready for it to be a continuation of the breakup chat... but I wanted to at least see him tell me this face to face.

    Ended up picking him up at the airport at 1am Saturday morning (If I'd known the flight was gonna be delayed that long... I wouldn't've!).... and we stayed up until 5am talking things out.

    He tried very hard to be open and honest about how he's been feeling, and he admitted that he's been acting like a jerk. He said he'd been waiting for me to stand up to him about it (which I *had* been, just not in such a grand gesture)... but hadn't expected us to actually break up.

    It was taking him a bit, but then we got some friendly help getting him to actually admit all the stuff he came here to admit Saturday. Ended up talking some more, and he pretty much realized he was a complete idiot for almost losing me and that he still loves me completely.

    So. I took him back. On the condition that he never does this again, that he DOES love me and that he KNOWS it, and that he understands that he hurt me unbelievably and will have a LOT to do to make it up to me.

    He was pretty fabulously sweet this weekend. And he did fly 1200 miles each way to see me without any guarantees that I was even gonna talk to him... so that's a pretty big gesture. I hope he meant all of it. I think he did. But, we'll see if he can actually improve his communication and whatnot over the next few months.

    I know a lot of people are gonna think I'm silly for taking him back. Maybe I am. But, I wouldn't've done if if I didn't think things would change. Good vibes that I never have to enter that "parting ways" forum again would be muy appreciated. I am tentitively hopeful, and trying to stay strong no matter what happens.

    Just... it hurt both of us too much to be apart. So I truly believe that it shocked him into realizing that he'll do whatever he can to keep us together. And, for the record, I never believed that he didn't love me. I just didn't know what I was supposed to say when his only answer was, "I don't know." I told him if he ever says that again, I'm gonna smack him so hard it won't even be funny! lol.

    Thank you all. I am so... so relieved. I mean, I just couldn't wrap my head around what had happened or how I was supposed to move on. Which, I take as a cosmic sign that I wasn't supposed to be moving on.

    There's other good things in the works that I'm afraid to jinx. But, I feel like it's gotta be all downhill from here.
