I would do anything for love… But oh no, don’t make me do that!!!
I had an ex-boyfriend who loved his ex-girlfriend so much that he would frequently talk about her with fondness. (note: don’t get into a new relationship until you’re over your old relationship) It was fine though, I understand your past makes you who you are, but damn, if you want to be with her, be with her.
But that was the problem.
They dated for 2 years and he wanted to marry her, but she was *gasp* a Mormon!
Dun, dun, dun…
That in general wasn’t the problem; except that he didn’t want to be one, and she wouldn’t marry him unless he was one. So they reached a stalemate and called it all off.
And I think… I think… that answers the age old question.
