I began posting on Ask Mr. Answer Man after a very difficult breakup. Like many posters, I wanted to know 'why?' As time passed and I continued reading the posts, I found that I had something to say and to offer to others based on my experiences. It became therapeutic for me in that the advice I was giving was the same advice I needed to hear. It gave me clarity to make better choices for myself.

I still make mistakes in relationships but when I read some of the posts on this board, I am reminded of where I started and how much I have grown since then. There are many here who offer wonderful relationship advice based on their own experiences. I continue to learn something everyday.

 I can't remember when I first starting reading Ask Mr. Answer Man, but I do know it was while I was dating someone who was afraid to love anyone because he was afraid of losing someone. While reading these posts, I started to confront the fact that there was nothing I could ever do to make the relationship work, simply because his heart, mind and soul were not in a place where he could even try. So, when the right man finally came along, my eyes were wide open and I was able to say yes without a shred of doubt when he asked me to marry him. I have never experienced so much joy and contentment in a relationship, and I do believe this board helped me really focus on what it was I wanted and how to identify the man who shared the same goals.
