    Your advice was spot-on for Frank. Absolutely! A person’s true character comes forth in the absence of the “fluff and stuff” that often distracts of who they are when no one is looking.

    Yes, definitely your phone is ringing off the hook for Frank. =)

    I was intrigued before he told you about the “wining and dining” he was doing for his fiance, in that he spoke very eloquently in the terms he used to describe his relationship with her. Many men are not interested in counseling and when they do go, they don’t often take a lot with them when they leave the session. It sounds like this gentleman has done just that. It’s too bad that nice Christian guys, such as himself are few and far between. That’s been my “pickle”.

    Chanel – this is Frank, actually. Thanks for your supportive words. It is new territory for me to hear and feel compliments and building up. So, again thanks.

    Good advice to Jane from Jill. Poor thing has been involved with a manipulative game player. It sounds like he isn’t emotionally mature and keeps stringing her along since he is so disconnected. He needs to grow up. Too bad he has kids he has already damaged with his double-mindedness.
