    Just my 2 cents, but a while ago I was dating someone
    who turned out to be a putz anyway - but from Day 1,
    I told him about my martial arts training and schedule
    and made it very clear that if that was going to be a
    problem to please tell me because it wasn't likely to
    change. He said he was fine with it and that lasted
    all of 3 weeks before it was something he harped on
    constantly.. thankfully, it's also where I started seeing
    more of his putzy self so I didn't stress out about it..

    It's the insecure people who get clingy.

    And it really does not matter what it is.
    Ladies who are into horses have to deal with that a lot as well...

    My ex-wife did this. I cut down to make her happy. I eventually quit entirely to make her happy. I eventually divorced her to make ME happy and returned to training.

    My ex-wife was the same. I had my life whittled down to a point where I did nothing but go to and from work. And even then, it still wasn't enough.

    Our two come back to visit pretty often. So, we are not feeling "lonely" yet!

    My ex-wife wanted me to train more..... because when I trained less, I was home more, and it cut down on her dating

    Thanks, but no worries, it was going to end anyways, and it was many years ago...there was a fiancée after her and another fiancée that became my wife after that. I have made many a joke about the first marriage over the years.

    My wife these days just tells everyone I'm martial arts crazy...and many of those she tells this to, live in China...and now I have our youngest doing it to (Aikido) :)

    I am sure that maybe I will someday myself. Then again I kind of already do. People ask me, "Why did your first marriage fail?"

    I say, "Because my wife lived up to her maiden name too well."

    They say, "What is it?"

    And I say, "Child!"

    I use to tell people I was incredibly selfish and inconsiderate....I switched from working second shift to first shift so I was home in the evenings...and it cut to much into her dating :D

    Feeling so exhausted today. No idea why. I got to bed early enough. Oh well. At least there is no part-time job or freelance work tonight.

    They need to have nap rooms at jobs.

    Not really, but it sounded funny. Plus I could use one. VERY hard to keep my eyes open.

    Some research supports your wishes. My substitute is an afternoon cup of coffee. I'd rather have the nap.

    Coffee has never had the effect on me that it does on most people. Well, that's not true: it did once, when I had an entire pot of it on my own.

    It rarely has a huge effect on me. I can drink it late and it won't keep me up. But some days a second cup is like being on crack. My wife actually seems to be amused by those days.123
