Mudshark, I wanna hear your single with the bullet--Seriously, I re-read your initial post--If she told you to split--it may be that she doesn't want what you have to give--personally, any woman that would want to be with you just to get close to that McGuinn Rickenbacker twelve, but I guess I am not the most tuned in to what women need. How old are her daughters? It could be that she went looking for a man purely for someone to support the kids. Not cool to say that it happens, but it does.
I worked with a divorced woman who had two teenage daughters(her first husband had been a musician) and she joined an exlusive health club in an expensive suburb, to meet someone who could support her and her kids--she drove 40 minutes everyday, worked out in full make-up, and sure enough, she met a guy with money. She told everybody, but him, that it was just for the money, too. He's still got a lot of money, so the marriage is solid as a rock.
Meanwhile, Kendall, there were no Sufis 2000 years ago, they are Islamic mystics!
