A lot of the so-called rules for happiness don’t work out in the real world.I could relate to a woman who wanted the security of the marriage but liked an open arrangement. We spent most of the night at a club in Midtown where he was a VIP, and he held my hand and it felt good to be his arm candy.
One guy had legal issues, and we’d fight all the time about them. It drove me up the wall and made me insecure, but I kept trying.
I would’ve imagined nothing but gender role stereotypes and gross expectations on both sides.
I’m the kind of person who has always been fiercely independent and paid her own way.
We were a family of five who got by on ,000 a year, eating government cheese.
I went to college on a grant and eventually cofounded a fairly successful business in Atlanta.
