That said, consider the dog. Adopt a dog and you will get the most loyal and devoted companion you could ever want... almost. The guy who lands me (and I'll tell you right now I'm a good catch, without sounding conceited) will get the same type of loyalty and devotion expected from a pooch. What more could you want, you might ask? How about a loving, caring guy who will live to please his mate? If that's what you're looking for, look no further!
I had been in a devoted relationship for 16 years. I took a year to get over it and am now working on dating again. It took me a year to realize that while my former mate and I still loved one another, we were no longer IN love with one another. We're still friends, but that's it. I just watched a movie with a happy ending and cried, because I have to wonder if such a Hollywood ending is possible in real life, or will it always be just out of reach?
