A question

I was asked about a year ago for an anti-Valentine's Romantic Regrets. (Gene always asks good questions.) Looking back in Facebook at the thread, my reply still feels true:

"I regret 5 years spent with someone I realized never trusted me.

(Wow. 5 years came down to 12 words that sum up all that excitement of falling in love, the self-doubt of being with a controlling person, the heart ache of feeling both wanted and rejected, and the ultimate liberation of realizing I do NOT need that.)
"

I've been thinking about this reductive nature of relationships, too--got a bunch old letters and etc to go through from dad's. ...I came to this blog to ferret our your news. No luck. Call me.
