Well, yesterday I suggested that we go to a certain place to eat lunch ... he said it wasn't a good idea and suggested somewhere else. On the way to the restaurant, he explained that OW & her friends generally hung out at the place I suggested on Sundays and he didn't wish to go there.

We are taking some really positive steps here. I am worried that I am getting too excited about how we are beginning to head in the right direction. How do you stay grounded during this time without being cynical?
