Love: Is it something you must choose more than once?

I got Married and overnight became “That Woman”

Prior to getting married I will have to say I was a tad bit judgmental to the “needy” women I encountered. The women who in my eyes were needy  because they always called their man; or everything their man did seem to be so important as if the guy moved a mountain.  Every conversation sooner or later included their magical man. I use to think … Continue reading I got Married and overnight became “That Woman”
