Default Back again for a while?

Hello SA Folks,

I'm not sure if there is anyone else still around who will remember me, I used to be a regular here a long-long time ago (in a galaxy far away), and got to know some fantastic people online and at meets who helped me through a very difficult time in my life.

I drifted away as my life was all sorted, or at least so it seemed at the time, but I found I needed to distance myself from some of the topics to maintain my delicate mental balance.

I will probably request a username change in the near future, as 'Lostboy' was something I picked to represent my state of mind when I first joined the forum, and this is so far removed from who I am now. That said, I have resisted the urge to abandon my old account and start a fresh one, as our history defines us and puts the present into perspective. I think you have to own it or it will end up owning you.

Had you asked the me back then where I would be now, he would probably have said he had absolutely no idea, permanently alone, or something more fatalistic. Now, apparently against all odds, I have a wife and two wonderful kids. Am I happier than I was? Yes, definitely, without a doubt. Am I totally cured and happy with my life? Well, I'm apparently back, so I think that question answers itself, but more later....

Sorry you have felt the need to return, have you got any tips on how to find and meet a partner?

Thanks everyone.

To answer Bored's question I will post something in the relationships section when I have the time to spare. However, I think the question should be how do you find and meet a suitable partner....
