Hey ladies, I just wanted to post an update on what''s going on in relationship land for me. I''ve been extremely busy over the last 5 or 6 months and so haven''t been on PS as much as I''d like, so that''s why I haven''t posted this sooner!

Some of you may remember that I got engaged about a year ago (wow, was it really that long ago?) after lots of waiting (over 5 years!) and anticipation and all the stuff that goes along with being a LIW. After that point, unfortunately, things started heading south with us (which is entirely the wrong direction considering how a relationship SHOULD be after becoming engaged) and I ultimately made the decision to end it. Things just weren''t working out, I wasn''t happy, and I truly couldn''t see myself marrying him anymore.

It was a really tough thing to do, I know he loves me and cares for me so much and it killed me to have to do it. In the end, though, I know that I made the right choice and would not have been as happy as I know I could/should be.

I''m currently seeing a wonderful guy who has made me feel all kinds of special in ways ex-FI never did, and it amazes me because I don''t think I ever truly realized how unsatisfying my old relationship was. I am so much happier now.

Thanks for reading!

Welcome back StarSparkle! I too came back to PS after a bad relationship ended, although it ended on here. But I am glad you are in a good relationship now, it is quite amazing to know how wonderful and amazing you can feel with someone that truly loves you and treats you like you deserve! I''m glad you came back, stick around! Keep us updated! Maybe you will be back on the LIW at some point!

Very concise and well put. I''m glad to see you back and posting more than you have been for a while.

Plus, you even sound happier.

Miss you girly. I don''t get to talk to you nearly as much as I used to...

happy dreams, mscushion - Thank you! New BF is just fabulous.

ilovesparkles - Thanks, and I''m sorry to hear about your relationship. It does boggle my mind how different this one feels and how differently he treats me and just the overwhelming love I feel from him and feel FOR him. We''ve already dicussed marriage (and diamonds and erings!) and I already feel like a LIW again!

Freke - Lol, yup. I AM a lot happier, and with good reason! I miss you too! I just can''t wait to get home and be done with this place so I can get back to some semblance of a normal life.

Tuckins1 - It was difficult, but I''m so glad I realized it wasn''t right before we got married. Thanks for the congrats, he is great!

Glad you are back.

Congrats on having the guts to go forward, to a better place!
I wonder if you''re edging back into LIW status, by updating us on your adventures??!

Thanks for the support, everyone! It''s ridiculous how much happier I am now. It should be illegal!


Lara: LIW-land definitely isn''t too far away for me, we''ve just got a few things that need to be worked out first (one being that in 6 weeks, we''ll become long-distance
). But we''ve already discussed these things and have plans in place to overcome them, so I''m not too worried about it.
