Elspeth's Story: After having lived in California and Oregon for 15 years, I decided to go back to my roots. I was born in Cleveland, and I was tired of working in a grocery store. I had pretty much decided that I couldn't put up with anyone for the rest of my life, and couldn't really see anyone willing to live with me for eternity, so I had decided to "give up men" and be happy as a single gal. If I DID meet anyone, it wouldn't be a coworker or a smoker. After a couple low paying jobs...

My husband and I met when we were twelve years old, and while we were each interested in respective friends of ours while at camp, our paths crossed through circles of friends there several times over the years. We stayed in contact, as friends, through long distance prepaid phone cards, and saw each other rarely, since we lived two hours apart (a great distance at 13). When we were 16...
