Snarky Bookstore Boy sounds like a prick who is too immature to even come close to touching an honest to Goddess relationship. I don't care if you and Jeff were loading up on copies of H*stler and Pl@yboy, the way he behaved is unprofessional and childish. I do have one -- not sure what word to use here -- thing (??) that's sticking in my craw though...I'm not sure if it's entirely ethical for a therapist to go from counseling you two as a couple, to just working with Jeff. I definitely know doing it the other way around (Ie, seeing one of the spouses, then going on to counsel them as a couple) is vérboten. I promise, I'm not trying to make trouble. It's just, Mom kind of got screwed during The Flood: Part I when Dad's "therapist" did just that (she'd been working with Dad for several months, then called Mom in to "work" with them as a couple). I would hate to see anything like that derail the efforts you and Jeff are making. And I'm glad you found the flint. :-) *Hug*

Great entry, wonderful story, excellent lesson. Good luck to you two--rough patches are hard but things can end up fixed better than before they got broken. Which is hard to imagine in mid-rough-spot, but true just the same.

Snarky Bookstore Boy reminds me of that skit from Mad TV where the dispensary nurse is calling patients’ names for their prescriptions, which are all for sex-related ailments, and embarassing the hell out of them as they go up to pay. But this entry wasn’t about him, was it? Keep the spark! Nurture it! Fan it into a hot flame! You will not regret having done so.

Well, how incredibly rude. SBB needs a good hard pinch, since he obviously has no concept of customer relations, or indeed any manners. It's comforting to hear you're determined to reclaim your relationship, however; give it your best shot and don't give up. Love, R xxx

Yaay for sparks! Will defintely keep praying for a nice toasty fire... ::HUGS::

Wishing you all the best with that spark! I love Jerome, too. What a great little place. I'll be back in the Valley this weekend. We really do need to have that cup of coffee (although, now it probably needs to be an iced coffee). If the Valley is getting too hot for you, you're always welcome in Prescott!

Hi, Just came across your site (I like). I totally understand how you're feeling in your relationship, my partner and I had a very similar kind of episode about two weeks ago and I was the one feeling like you! But we talked about it and we're working things through so best of luck to you on that. I have the book "All about me" a friend got it for me years ago and I've always been afraid to fill it out, but I think now that you've got yours, I'll need to fill mine out - and I'll try to be honest.
