Orangutan are sensitive, beautiful, and intelligent, though.

I'd err on the side of not marrying a creep.

This is one of the most beautiful and touching things I read in a very long time. Thank you.

I was in the same situation exactly, even down to income and career field, but I didn't have a voucher. I was priced out of my neighborhood in 2007 after the apartment I lived in was renovated into condos. I moved to a far flung neighborhood and lived there for 7 years. The lack of reliable public transportation and issues with our school moving made it impossible to continue on there. I moved back to my home state where I had never lived as an adult and, gosh, I miss Seattle terribly. But I don't regret leaving because it's possible to live above the poverty line where I am now, and I can give my kid a much more stable life.

I hope the tide turns in Seattle and Ms. Roundtree is able to attain what I couldn't. And if not, I hope she isn't afraid. Leaving can be the heartbreak before the new love.

Holy crap, sorry for all the typos. "If your friend bit, he would have started negging her". Wow. Sorry.

@175 If your friend but, he would have started begging her. Look at the subtle and overt tactics he used. When texting, he wrote something akin to, "If you're any good at banging..." I'm paraphrasing, but you can see the vaguely disparaging challenge. Really you only need look as far as the "trolls" tactics--equating the prospective models to hookers. The falicy is that it's legal to rape women just because they're sex workers or considering sex work. Call me optimistic, but this specific flavor of toxicity is probably entirely from one source.

I see you, dude.
