In every relationship, there are always two sides of the story of what happened. Each person lives their own version of shared events. There is not necessarily a "right" or a "wrong" point of view - there is only the person's perspective of what happened, and what happened for them is very true in their world.

Otherwise, I am very happy with my current living situation, and I am very happy being with Torwin. He and I just kind of ended up together - it was not a planned thing, especially since we had both literally come out of very traumatizing past relationships, and we were not looking to get into another relationship. But we ignored our own rules, about not letting ourselves get too close, or attached. Now, I honestly don't know what I'd do without him. I mean, I'd LIVE if we were ever to split up, but I'd rather remain living my life as it is with him. I owe him quite a bit.
We are a good team. We keep things very open and simple. There are no expectations, and no pressure. Everything's relaxed. He's who he is, and I love him for it, and likewise, he loves me for who I am, and doesn't try to change me into someone I'm not. He tolerates my bitchy moments, and I tolerate his crazy moments. We respect each others likes and dislikes, similarities and differences. He's fun to be around, and while he may not be super emotional and like talking about his feelings, he is still very affectionate, he makes me laugh, and there is never a doubt in my mind about how much he cares for me. But most important, we TRUST each other, and we communicate, and LISTEN to each other. We respect each other, and I can't ask for more than that.
Also, I REALLY, REALLY love my puppy, Jango! Tor drove me into work, with both Jango and Tobi today, and Jango spent some time by my side being a big mushpot, and I love him so much!!! He fills that empty space that's been there for a while, since I had to give Zena up (which really killed me inside...). If it weren't for Tor, I wouldn't have Jango right now, so it's just one more reason why I adore my Collie. ^^
This post is not meant to be emo or anything, and is just me thinking out loud about something that's been on my mind for the last couple of weeks. Always feels better getting things off my chest.
