No, I am not a 4. The overall details are too elaborate for a brief

We parted ways and she moved on to husband #3 who remains clueless. I
suspect that she is as happy as she can be. I never betrayed her. That
was my contribution; intimacy does not invariably lead to victimization and betrayal. I learned a lot about myself in the process. We were a
handshake; I played my part in the dance of intimacy. Now, I choose partners more carefully. The dance is different, less intense, more
predicable; less dramatic, more authentic. If you asked her about me,
she would say, "I loved him, but we were not "in-love;" something was
missing. Amen.
