Yes, you certainly nailed that one, lol. Ok, I'll fess up. Long before I was married, I struck up a friendship (quite accidently) with a guy

I'd always loved the idea of SF ... it was just one of those places I could see myself living in quite happily. I think I loved every aspect of it, even the cable cars and the winding streets. It has SO much charm ! I'd like to visit NY but I couldn't visualize myself living here... too big and too crowded ! He just assumed I'd live wherever he chose and without telling me, he bought an apartment in Brooklyn Heights. As much as I cared about him, and I did, the thought of living permanently in NY was too daunting an aspect for me.

I see. Was he real unhappy when you said you wouldn't be moving there with him?

Yes, he had actually proposed when he was here and I accepted. We got along famously and he was everything I had hoped he would be when we met ... even though he didn't tell me he was coming, lol. If he'd just stayed in SF it would have been alright but when he flew to NY for the interview, he told me he was visting his aunt there. It was only after he'd been accepted that he told me the truth. When I objected (rather loudly, lol) his words to me were " If you really loved me, you'd live with me anywhere". I was a bit angry that he had gone behind my back but however much he pleaded, I just wasn't prepared to live in NY. I hate big cities, Rita (SF is/was the exception) and steer well clear of them even here. Where I live is a coastal town, smallish (population around 55,000 although it swells to almost three times that in
