:smile: Some of my American friends do this too, I assume as a courtesy so that this Eurotrash isn't confused. But the overlap is only relevant when the number is less than ~ 40. If it's 80 C outside, you don't have to worry about anything, least of all measurement units.
I guess I'm used to a lot of people on here being from places other than the US, so whenever I mention temperature I point out that I'm using Fahrenheit. I just hate leaving any room for misinterpretation. :razz:

You're also acknowledging the far superior "ice to steam" scale rather than the "ice, water and ammonium chloride to vague estimate of human body temperature guessed by a crazy german" scale.

This was one of those days where everything just seems to go your way, it's an odd occurrence, but I love when it happens

Also they reuploaded ASAP Rocky's cover of Sittin' On, this day has been great :razz:

My partner (together almost 14 years, married nearly 5) did some light cheating (over the pants, under the shirt) last summer. ****'s been rocky. Lots of money has been spent on therapy. It's taken me a long time to accept that her cheating had very little to do with me. She decided to move out a month ago to help understand whether she still wants to be with me. I supported her decision, albeit reluctantly at first.

Now that it's been a month, I feel fantastic. For the first time since August, I feel really proud about who I am independent of her, and for how I've been able to continuously show up for the sake of our marriage. Even if our relationship ends in divorce, I realized that I won't regret the decision to marry her.

I also realized that for the first time in 14 years I have a strong desire to fall in love again with someone else. Despite that desire, I still love my wife, but I'm no longer afraid to lose her. I wonder if I could somehow hold love in my heart for two people at once? It would be kinda cool to have a wife and a girlfriend.

All things considered, life has been tough, but it probably helps that I'm going on a date with a cute and interesting girl tomorrow morning! :grin:

I somewhat know what you went through, though not nearly as deep as with a 14 years relationship.

Congratulations on reaching the place where you are now :smile:

Thanks, man. It feels so isolating when you're in the middle of it, but it's something that happens to half of all marriages, and the majority of all romantic relationships, so that helps keep it in perspective. Honestly, I think it would have been just as tough if it was 4 years, or 14 years, or 40 years.

Date went surprisingly well - she's out of my league looks wise, but she agreed to go on a second one!
