Love is coming to us all!

I fell in love with Leonardo years ago... but I didn't realize it until i had this dream about him selling posters of himself on Shakedown Street back in 1998 when I first when on Further Tour. I was 19 at the time. I think he is the most gorgeous man I have ever seen in my life. Really don't care about the movie career though I think he is a great actor! Hoping to meet up with him at a show. Breaks my heart to see him with another girl. Love him so much..hoping my dream will come true...to marry Leonardo and spend my life with him , tour with grateful dead and have his children here on God's Green Earth!! Thank you! I wish you all the very best with your relationships.. don't worry God has someone for everyone.. just a matter of meeting up with them! Don't cry my brothers and sisters... I love you all very much and so does Jesus! Peace!

Thank you TigerLilly

Have been getting along with her well, but not much has changed beyond that. She is going away with him this weekend to see Furthur in New Jersey. Trying my best to accept that, but it's hard.

Crossing my fingers for you, that you get your chance to show her.

I always liked the Dead, but loved them when I met my wife

I'm only 30. I know.....I've heard it all before. "How can you really like the Dead?"
Well, I do.
It's one of the things I have in common with my wife. Well, now she's used this great site to meet someone else......
I have my faults. I love my wife to pieces, but I'm not always the best at showing her. I'm 7 years younger, so in a way, she's always felt like my mom. There's a lot of small things that all added up. I know I can make my wife happy again.
I just need a chance.
It's hard to let go after 12 1/2 years, even if she is breaking my heart.
Thank goodness for 2 beautiful daughters. All I have now to make me happy......

I just kept taking my wife to shows

Against her will at first but now she can't wait for NYE in San Fran. Not only does she get the seeing them 3 nights in a row thing but now she gets the teavelling aspect of it. Hey if you don't live on the coasts, you have to travel if you want to see them.

It's all about perserverance! ;-)

Slowly but Surely

I was never one to believe in love at first sight, that is until I met my now wife almost 12 years ago. Me in my Birks and unkempt appearance, her off the pages of a fashion magazine. She managed to get me off the bus for a time, took me to get a haircut and some shopping and Banana Republic, funny the things we do for love.
Almost 4 years later we find out that we are expecting a baby, well not so much expecting as surprised as hell that she had become pregnant. Alittle soul searching and I found myself drawn back to the comforts of my tapes. My daughter was born and we would dance and still dance around to the music of The Dead then my son born several years later and he is a Head at heart...
Long story short, She doesnt hate them anymore actually quite the opposite, we went to a "Dead Tribute Festival" this past summer at a local winery, me and the kids are bouncing around to Bertha and who should I catch out of the corner of my eye totally jammin...My lovely wife, on the car ride home she looked and me and smiled and said 'I get it now'

I'm the spouse who didn't get it. . .

But please note the past tense - there is a happy ending :)
Dave and I have been together for 33+ years, and he's been into the Dead since he was 12 or so. I never had anything against them, but I wasn't really a fan and mostly just knew their biggest commercial hits (Truckin, Sugar Magnolia). We had a lot of bands we liked in common, so we really weren't musically incompatible, but I didn't quite get the Dead thing (Why would anyone want to go to three shows in a row? Don't you already have that song on another album?)
Fast forward to Sept 2004, and we're on vacation at a beautiful resort on the southern Maine coast. One of the CDs we brought was Dicks Picks 14, which contains the longest, loveliest versions of Eyes and Sunshine. At some point during the week, I realize that the soundtrack to our vacation is the MOST WONDERFUL MUSIC I have ever heard, and just like that, I'm hooked! Since then, I've had an insatiable appetite for their music, and that's pretty much what's always playing at our little cottage by the river. I've seen Ratdog 6 times in the past few years, and I'm so excited to be going to my first Dead shows in April in Worcester. I think Dave is more excited for me than he is for himself. He says he's not surprised that he finally "turned" me, he's just surprised it took me so long. Thanks, Dave! If I had the world to give, I would absolutely give it to you!
