For the last 2+ months my relationship with Lena has taken twists, turns and direction changes not compatible with my fundamental way of thinking.
We developed serious differences in the way we approached the relationship we seek and believed we once had.
We no longer have one.
This is why my presence in the forum was less than sporadic and why it will be non-existent in the future.
My decision to terminate all fiance visa paperwork was made over 6 weeks ago and it is final.
I am not going to spend a single breath sharing here any of the details that caused me to make this decision.
I respect her privacy just as much as I protect mine.
So not juicy gossip blood for you, my dear rat bastards.
But I want everyone here to know that despite the outcome, Lena is, in my never ever humble opinion, still the classiest and most deserving FSU woman I could have ever asked for.
Just because we did not find a way to resolve our differences does not make either one of us undeserving of the happiness we seek and will surely find elsewhere.
The only reason I chose to post this final words is to avoid accussing index fingers pointed at me if you ever happen to see me walking with a tall beautiful blonde instead of the adorable green eyed brunette from Siberia.
Good luck Mr.Toad,
You did without a doubt added the most colorful twist to this forum .
Your rantings and ravings and viewpoints were very close to being unparalled in my opinion.
I feel you will be sorely missed by everyone.
I won't ask you to stay...........I respect your wishes,but I do want to say that I have greatly enjoyed each and every input you have placed here,I will miss that acidic wit very much my friend,and I can only hope that the future brings you the happiness you deserve.......along with that lovely lady from Siberia too...........my heartfelt wishes to you GT,may you live a long productive life with whoever you choose to be with.
Stay cool,be happy........live long and prosper.
Oleg, thank you for the kind comments and offer but no can do.
When one door closes at least another one opens and that's exactly what has happened during these last few weeks for me.
I have been hit over the head with the sudden opportunity to have back the only american woman I know who matches my long list of incredibly chauvinistically piggish expectations.
We had a mostly happy relationship for four years in the past and after learning our lessons elsewhere we both found ourselves wishing we were still with each other.
This is one I always wished I had not been so damn stupid.
She got away before and I have only myself to blame for it. Not this time.
My presence and history in this forum is too close for comfort for her and I can't blame her for it.
Besides, I like the idea of becoming a legend and retire on my own terms...;)
Well said toad........you go with lots of good wishes,
you will be missed...................ok.......now go enjoy life my friend,and never lose that sense of realism/honesty/and shoot from the hip wit.
No more unexplained explosions in Skandinavian ponds, no more unadulterated sarcasm let alone new sideways views on logic.
I presume also no more stories about hatching tadpoles, and this bit may serve as food for thought for Storks I suppose.
Suit yourself, but this you've always done anyway, in a distinct manner which was interesting indeed and, to shine your ego, will be missed. Also absent will be the lines inbetween to read, and know this was a wealth of info.
Adieu Tall one, may the beam on yer & her mug be eternal ;-)
