People who don't know me can disregard this

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

That is to say, people who don't know me in person could probably safely disregard this. Information, I've read, is the decreasing of uncertainty. I don't know if that definition applies, but in any case, this will be much more informative to you if you know me outside the Net.

A relationship of long standing has ended. It was almost three years old.

I do not want to talk about responsibility. And although we were very close, and loved each other (although the last few months have given me much cause to try to figure out what exactly that means), we were no longer suited to fulfill each other's needs.

I'm sorry.
