Meredith, I've been "grieving" the loss of guy I dated for about six months. Initially, we had great chemistry (or so I thought), but once I got to know him better I noticed the difference in our values and principles. We attempted to start dating again several times after learning this, but things just don't seem to work out between us. It's been almost two years since we met and stopped seeing each other, and I feel that I still care for him as much as I did when we were together. I'm starting to understand that maybe he just didn't care about me as much as I did about him. As I write this, I'm still examining these feelings and my underlying emotions.

Add a couple of crazy exes and you’ve got the next “Bachelor in Paradise,” maybe? Except that this happened in 1940, on what is still known as “Honeymoon Island,” a barrier island attached to Dunedin, Fla., by causeway. Among the couples who vied for the honors were Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman, who were rejected because they’d been married too long (four months), and a couple of former Munchkins from “The … [Read more...] about Want love that lasts?
