Why Settle For Less?

Back in 1987, I started working for Venture Stores. I worked there until 1998 when they went out of business. I went from early morning stocker to cashier,service desk,signing person/substitute purchasing/merchandise clerical,receiving clerical,receiving manager,customer service manager,then back to receiving manager. We had a employee orientated store,we all got along. Yes, we bitched occasionally but we still stood by each other.Coworkers would help one another out,especially when they needed time off. There were no power stuggles among the employees or management. Of course there was an asskisser in management, but some people think they need to do that.We went through a few store managers, but they all were likeable people.
I have nothing but good memories from that job. So when I was offered an interview by Kmart for a management position, I decided I didn't want to work for them. In fact I interviewed for many management positions and did not take any I was offered. I knew I would not find what I had when I worked Venture. I miss working with happy,friendly people. All the other retail store employees complained about their management. I decided I never wanted to work retail again.
I worked for the perfect retail store. Why settle for a job wishing it was as good. Why settle for less?

On February 4,2005, I met a man that I became very close friends with over the next few months. The relationship progressed into something I wanted, an honest and very trustful relationship where neither of us are afraid to be honest with each other.We discovered many common interests that few would share and we can easily make each other laugh. I had found my friend,playmate,and lover,others may describe this as their soulmate. I have never felt this comfortable in a relationship,it was so easy. There is one exception,he is unavailable to me. So after struggling a few months, I decided I wanted to look for a man who I can have the same ease of a relationship. I found what I wanted in a relationship. Why should I settle for less?

You absolutely shouldn't settle for less!

I'm sure it was a hell of a struggle to arrive at the decision to start looking again, and I feel for you.

I know I don't have to tell you this, but now that you know exactly what it is in a man and relationship that makes you happy, do not allow yourself to have anything less than that happiness.

This man may be a hard act to follow, but you owe it to yourself.

You're making me blush I like your choice in photos. AdultFriendFinder has been really messing with upgrades lately and screwed up my Friend network permissions/categories. Alot of people in my network couldn't see my photos anymore. Hopefully it's fixed now.
