"What is the craziest thing you have ever done for love?"

Like Robert Burns' "Tam O'Shanter", this is also a cautionary tale about the evils of drink. Now read on...

Quite a few years ago, I had an "ex" who was a keen rock-climber. At the time, I suffered from extreme vertigo, so when she had asked me to go climbing I had always said "no". However, one evening in the pub, when I had had far, far, too many beers, she asked if I wanted to go climbing the next day and of course (in a moment of infatuated weakness) I said "No problem!".

The following day found me on a rope up a 500' climb in North Wales, coping (just about) and trying not to look down - and then my feet slipped. I only went about 6 inches before the rope stopped me. After that I had a lot of confidence in the whole proceeding.

The episode also cured my fear of heights (or at least made it more pragmatic): once you have experienced a 500' or a 2000' sheer drop below you, 10 or 20 feet is nothing.

The other aftermaths: well, I'm a lot more restrained in what I drink these days!

As a more serious comment, in later years (when I had two falls that were an awful lot further than 6") I realised that Dame Fortune only rolls out so much luck, which is why I don't do serious climbing any more.
I'm sensible enough to quit whilst I'm ahead.

The craziest i've ever done for love must have been when i was 16.
I sold all my stuff, and bought a plane ticket to Brussels, Belgium and ran away from home.
To live with an crazy artist i met one night in stockholm, we had only spent 6 hours together. But We lived happily and in love for 4 months, before i got tired of him and had to call my mother and beg her to pay my plane-ticket back to sweden =)

I brought a guy from Uzbeckistan over to thailand where I was working as a dive instructor. Maybe he loved me too but it ended up costing a lot of money and heartbreak. Still I am glad I took the chance and his life is now better because of it. We are still friends so that is what counts.

Dream guy was prepared to stake his job of not flying out for his business travel, to stay on with me when i was vacationing in his home country. i was moved and told him to go to work and come visit me at my home. he told me so just 3 hours short of the take-off time and that's when i knew he was deep in love.

when he called in to my vacation home, i was all willing and paid for an air ticket which i never got to use becos i had lost my passport and was waiting for the papers to be made out that had allowed time for the holiday romance to blossom.

things that we do for love * no regrets!
i will love again **













(great thread, sadly broken becos of these chat on culture-set abuse, that i would like to start posting on again)

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to all the women on this site. 99.99999% of Ohio men are not like this. By the way, what are you "Amaster" of?

He is 18, certainly not a master of much..maybe a master of bator?

sometimes when I'm trying to get a break in dense traffic
I'll pull out and make calculations rather pronto to blend in with the flow
being good at it I usually find the flow w/o interrupting anyone's speed or needing them to brake
but when I get in lane invariably a car will increase speed and pass me just because
I "cut" in front of them

Hi there

When I was home in January a friend was helping me with a medical problem, which he helped me sort out in Durban, while he lives in another Province.

Then he just kept call and realised he was 'chatting me up' - a very nice surprise.....anyway I returned to the UK and he kept calling.

Then he said 'lets go to Paris and I have some talks in London, so we'll go there afterwards'

I always stay in a very nice hotel in London, so I arranged a dinner with a 4 string quartet. The staff were fantastic and very excited, as they know me very well.

So - it was all set up in another room - I just said 'Keep Tuesday Night Free!!'

Well, he was so surprised - speechless in fact and that is a first for him - it was beautiful evening.

I wore a ballgown and he wore his tux....
