As one of my long-time readers, Barry, I thought it interesting that you noted not just my taking that chance but my writing about it!

Because I didn’t really hesitate to put myself out there with him, but I deliberated a lot about whether I should share this publicly.

For one thing, as I’ve written in some other responses, I feel like I’m kind of the villain here. (He did say goodbye and he has a serious girlfriend. Technically, that makes me the other woman. At least in some sense.)

In the end, I decided to go ahead and share it for the reasons I disclosed.

In any case, many thanks for your ongoing support of my writing!
