In response to a confession. Poobutter, he's kind of "countrified" me (taught me how to use all the lawn things and tools, plant a vegetable garden and work on cars, can you believe it?) and I've kind of "citified" him (fine dining, museums and the ballet/opera). We live in the country, in a log cabin on over an acre with only three neighbors, but less than half an hour from the city, so we make frequent trips there. (I LOVE our house!) In the beginning there were disagreements over food - he's meat & potatoes, and I'm healthy and quirky. He realized that he feels better when he eats my way, but we still have his faves once in a while. Sometimes we don't understand each other because certain things have different meanings where we're each from. And those Southern sayings, what the heck??? Love conquers all :)

I love both city and country. But I'm happy in the middle. Suburbia! My parents live out in the country and I love to visit-we ride go-carts, shoot guns, fish, etc. I love camping. But I live 30 minutes from beautiful museums, parks, professional teams, great shopping, fun stuff for my kids. And our neighborhood is lovely where people walk their dogs, ride bikes with family and know each other.

In response to a confession. I really hope he steps up this time..I'm just curious though, why would you need a restraining order? Is he abusive?

I couldn't live in a city. Country Mouse all the way. I don't even like to visit cities. Even the clean ones. *shudder* Too many people, too much noise, too much stuff going on in general for me. I like my dogs and my gardens and my hiking trails. I like my starry skies and my forest noises and my quiet sunrises. I like that the loudest noise I hear while I'm picking berries is my own voice yelling "Yo Bear" every so often. Because they eat berries too, and bears scare the shit out of me. Even though I'm a country mouse. :)

My DH moved us out to the country a few years ago and I HATE IT. I'm so bored and lonely. I didn't realize it would be like this.

I'm the OP with the super lazy DH. I have to go out of town this coming week and he asked me to leave him a list of things he has to do while I'm gone. While I feel like I shouldn't have to leave a list of daily chores for a grown man who LIVES IN OUR HOUSE, I don't want the animals to starve to death or run out of water and I'd like him to do some laundry and wash some dishes this time. He promises he will do better than last time. We'll see. I'm still in the process of getting things together--I contacted an attorney about what my rights are and what I'm entitled to. to file a restraining order if I need to.

In response to a confession. My husband grew up on a farm. He likes the peace and quiet of a country setting, a house with lots of land where there's privacy, doesn't care about having expensive things and prefers a simpler lifestyle. He is a "Country Mouse." I grew up in the city. I'm happiest when I'm in a fast-paced, energetic environment, surrounded by people, dressed up and going out. I wouldn't mind living in an apartment in NYC, which he would never, ever do. I am a "City Mouse." BTW, it's one of Aesop's Fables.

In response to a confession. Huh, maybe that's it. Although, he is WAY more enthusiastic about it when I'm bare down there, so maybe it's a bit of both.

Stopped seeing someone for about 8 mo. It's always been long distance but we had a falling out and just stopped emailing. Maybe emailed 8 times - short notes - in those 8 months, total. No texts/calls. Now I am going to his city and we agreed on coffee. Our emails totally avoid emotions but are friendly enough. He recently mentioned a dream he had (not graphic, but inferring sex). I'd like something physical again, but can't tell if he actually wants that. Waiting 2 weeks for this "coffee" and wondering if we'all have sex is killing me. I like this guy. We may not have a future, but he's an awesome guy - cute but for me sex is all in the brain and my brain hearts his brain.
