But I have managed to change the dates of my Greece holiday, still going this Summer and I decided it was a holiday for M only, with plenty of TLC and reflection on the last few months. I should take Olygirl and Greenmount with me as my "Stop-Pause-Think" coaches!
So I wasn't too far off after all?

Have fun in Greece. Just don't say εντάξει! (sounds something like this: ENTÁXEI) too freely when you're not sure, what you are agreeing to or we'll have an other one of these threads when you return.

In McTavge's defense...."Y" appeared to have lots of brothers all too eager to know McTavge.....after like two dates.

If I was a guy I would have run too.

The issue was more a lack of commitment from Y, a very demanding career making almost any plan impossible. However, since M dates X, Y seems to be more and more excited and wanting to date M, if possible with X present, which will never happen, over my dead body (and probably X's, who has never been into any kind of Y!) .
But, right now, X is making M extremely happy and I have not felt like this for a long, very long time. It feels wonderful, may it last!

Ah, M dates X. Now that bit was not mentioned, no wonder I got it all wrong.

I like people who mean it when they say, they want to try something new!
May it last, indeed.

PS: Does X not like Greece?

M's flights had been booked since January and were successfully transferred to M's convenience- Alas, they were all fully booked and both X and Y will have to manage on Swiss soil in the absence of fabulous M !

I'm just immersed in Iain Banks "The Culture" sci-fi books. Looks like I just encountered a forum of one of their habitats.

You've been personally called up at least two times by teacher McTavge but you proved to be a deep sleeper.

Re: M+Y (M+X) = McTav

Sorry i have not been here a long time, but some exciting update! So, I went to Greece, deserted by tourists and it was lovely! Beaches all to myself, it was truly wonderful and the holiday I had been dreaming of... except the reality seems to be taking over even my wildest dreams! On day 3 of the holiday, I went to a beach (signposted as such), stretching as far as the eye could see, and no one but me. I had been playing and jumping in the waves for about 15 minutes when suddenly I was pulled by a very strong current and simply could not swim back to shore. It was so scary and I had waves battering me, I honestly thought this was the end. Then, this guy seemed to arrive from nowhere, he had seen me struggling, drove his car to the beach, had a rope in his car he tied to his bumper and swam to rescue me. Basically, he saved my life.
I was spitting salt water, choking for air but so grateful I gave him a hug... whatever he thought, he was inclined for more than a hug and that's how a great, torrid holiday romance went on for the following 6 days with this Adonis.
Except: remember, we've still got X in Geneva, Y in German speaking Switzerland, now A in Greece and all 3 want to join me for my birthday here in Geneva, oblivious of each other's existence! I am used to manage unruly classes but not this!
I told ya, life never is boring in Switzerland!

No need. You named the Greek guy A.

Teach the alphabet to your harem and each will know their place.

Wow, life is never boring for you, McTav. This was way better than everything I could have watched on Netflix...

Glad you're back in Switzerland, happy and full of existential dilemmas.

Re: M+Y (M+X) = McTav

On the topic of Switzerland, I finally went to a jeweller to have my wedding ring removed because I could not do it myself. He had to cut it in the end, which saddens me a bit, but that's the way it goes. He refused to charge me anything, claiming he was acting as a "Liberator"! I believe he's had some very unhappy experience with a woman before! The incredible thing in this story is NOT to be charged for a service, in Geneva of all places!

Why would he tie himself to a rope connected to a car? And how did he know the rope was long enough?

How peculiar.
