1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    As much as I hate traveling, I would rather suck it up and go with her. Who know what type of muscled African she'll run into? I don't need that in my life....

    Haha, more than double that. Been married 14 years. I'm not sure if I should be insulted, or if I should take it as a "you have a very youthful soul". I tend to lean toward the positive in these situations.

    I don't mean anything by it, it is just interesting how we all come across.

    When dating there's always a reprieve either at the end of the evening or the next morning/afternoon where we part ways for a few hours--either heading to our respective homes or elsewhere. This alone time allows me to decompress and reenergize, and prepare mentally for our next block of time together. But once you've moved in this reprieve is gone. And it creates a certain anxiety....a self-consciousness to not letting myself retreat into my own mind (as i'm normally used to doing, and is my natural state) because I feel I should be constantly engaging this other person, who I don't want to bore.

    It is an adjustment.

    People born into large family's are less prone to suffer this since they're used to being around other people 24/7--they don't find the constant engagement fatiguing.

    Having time apart is healthy. Even if you're in the same room, you can be doing separate things.
