Move on

Time to move on my friend....people don't change, stop crying about your "Kallah", you should be referring to her as your EX from now on. If a grown up can't stand up to her parents, what does that say about her personality? Love is simple, you either love someone or you don't. She doesn't love you. If you love yourself, you will get over this quickly and live your life instead of spending the entire day crying about what could have been. Regards, Shimon

I was engaged 9 times...

in less than 3 weeks, I will be marrying "the right one". I am divorced (once... with 3 kids) and in the past 17 years have had 8 proposals. One ended because we were not able to blend the two families, and decided that we could not be happy if our children were not happy. The other times, the gentlemen became comfortable once they put a ring on my finger and let me know that although they fell in love with me partly due to my independence, that was now to change. I was to become the follower. I looked for signs of this in each subsequent relationship, and although they were all aware of my past and swore up and down that they didn't want to change me, something shifted within the relationship that made me feel like I had to hand over all my power. I finally met someone who did not behave that way once he put the ring on my finger. He encourages me to grow as a person knowing that we will both be happiest when we can be partners and no one need rule the other. I have finally met my Beshert!
