  1. B. Your Aaliyah hit the nail on the head. Jeez. Especially with #9. Oh boy, does she understand me! This list is exactly how I feel about a guy I met several years back. I don’t think he really understands how much he really changed me. My life has never been the same and I haven’t seen him for quite some time. Every day gets harder and harder in not seeing, being with him. I miss him more than he will ever know. And yes, dare I say is-I love him. He probably has found another love and I have been forgotten. If so, that’s the way things can go.

  2. Bob, you are envied for having Aaliyah’s ten hates. How sweet and touching. All the best wishes from a chinese reader in China.

  3. Bob, I am so happy for you that you have found a wonderful love. Everything you wrote about Aaliyah is so sweet and perfect. Please make sure you will let everyone know when your wedding bell rings.
