I like listening to you guys talk about vibrators even though I do not like vibrators.
I love reading these and I love travel and this was particularly great but every time I think of going to a really exotic place, all my neuroses fire right up. I'm such a picky eater and I am terrified of all insects, bugs, lizards, etc. So. I'm torn.

Oh LW4, I have all the empathy in the world for you. He is never going to love you the way you deserve, honey. He gets everything he wants from you--emotional support, adoration, errands. What do you get? There are other friends for you and there's a man out there who is going to love you for the wonderful person you are, and who will see you for the beautiful woman you are. Let go so you can reach for something better.
