Well, I finally told my girlfriend EVERYTHING (because my mother found out the hard way and that led to an awkward conversation that went pretty well). She didn't even look at me weird. She says she won't ask me to stop and doesn't even care if I do it around her, as long as I'm not keeping secrets.
BUT she did say that she does have a problem with me going on the internet, and I sort of get that.
Now I just have to put this all on hold because it costs quite a bit, and I'm looking for engagement rings.
So, this is goodbye. You all taught me a lot, not just about this thing we have in common, but about people in general. Thanks!
I might get on a few times to RE to this thread, but that's it.
