Thank you for the very nice message! (It makes a change from all the "Post deleted" warnings that are currently filling my mailbox...) It's a shame that there are still people who seem to think that there is only one "normal" way to live one's life.
Just wanted to say well done to you chap for being frank about your circumstances, I admired what you said. If I had a rather nice boyfriend, it bother me about saying so but unfortunately I don't!
Also, I agree absolutely with your views about screaming kids!
