Same job, different uniform.

This paragraph struck a chord with me, and I felt is was worth re-posting:

You can be honorable by talking to and with her in social situations and returning her calls and emails. Is this difficult? If you decide, after honest reflection, that you'd rather not be the one with whom she is most interested in talking (and chances are good that you are), you will let her go at once and not leave her dripping in a muddy pool of self-doubt.

If you want more commentary on this thought provoking post, go check out Lone Prairie. Here a couple of snippets from Julie that I liked:
--an honorable man doesn't leave a person hanging in silence, feed out excuses of being too busy right now, show interest when it's convenient and life slows down --
"...but he is a nice guy, despite all of this. He's a nice guy. Don't say anything bad about him. He's a nice guy. He means well. He's just too busy. But he's a nice guy." That niceness is a trap. It leaves a woman feeling like she must really be awful for such a nice guy to still be considered, to still seem, nice, while she somehow feels like a truck ran over her heart."

As if on cue, a moment ago as I was reading this post (not out loud)Wyatt, who was sitting on my lap, looked down, saw a small felt heart sticker on the floor and said, "Look, Mom, there's a heart on the floor. Let me pick it up." He got down, picked it up and said, "Can we stick it on the map?" (We have a big world map on the wall of our computer room.) "Sure," I said. "Where do you want to stick it?"

"How about Texas?" he replied. So if you are broken hearted and living in Texas, I've got a little man here who'll pick your heart up right of the floor.
