A Single Letter Makes All The Difference - 06/22/00

In addition to being webmaster for danceslut.com, I'm also webmaster for my Dad's company "ztec.com." My Dad's company is a sole proprietorship. On the other hand, in Washington state, there's a company called "Zetec" which has several hundred employees and the domain "zetec.com." As you can imagine, I get quite a few misdirected emails...some of which are more interesting than others. (Names have been changed.)

Thank you John for being so honest, I appreciate your kind words...and thoughts!

What we shared is in strict confidence between you and me. I feel privileged that you were able to talk so freely about deep personal subjects, as our openness with one another means the world to me.

I do have a lot of positive things to be thankful for with my husband. But, I have to admit, that spending time with someone like you made me realize that I have compromised my integrity, my spirituality and my personal growth, by allowing myself to buy into his weaknesses for so long now. I have to make a very big decision...to stay or go. Do I stay with him, always battling the desire to be with someone who loves life, not someone who is afraid of it. Or do I leave, taking things on myself, in hopes that someday I will find a partner in which I don't have to give 110% in order for the relationship to work.

Thanks for being such a good friend.

I honestly hope that you and Kari work through your difficulties and come to a positive outcome for both of you.

I'll be in touch again soon.

Love you,

P.S. - Wednesday and Friday nights are good for us to get together, or the first second and third weekends of July are open for us. I know you reserve weekend time for roping though, so let me know what is good for you!

Now, that letter was bad enough, but last year I received one that was actually, well a "love letter" isn't quite the right term. "Lust letter" is a bit closer. I think "pornographic" sums it up best though. If you're under 18, you should probably not read it.
