I don't want someone I "won't be able to imagine my life without." I don't want someone to "have my whole heart." I don't want someone to be "my whole world," or "my rock," or "my better half." I don't want somebody who can understand me better than I can understand myself.

Mary E. Graham

He challenges me, encourages me and talks me down off cliffs, but he isn't the end-all-be-all of my world. That is a dangerous thing to ask of a relationship because I'm in love with and married to a flawed man. And he married a really flawed Mary.
