Author's note: Perhaps this story belongs in another category but I have come to have a deep respect for the readers in Loving Wives. I began writing for them and I continue to write with them in mind. I hope you enjoy this one.
Thanks to angel love for her usual great editing and comments.
This is a story of a man who makes his living understanding and helping others understand themselves. He makes informed decisions about the women in his life based on his best perception of them. As a professional man, he believes what he sees, and considers that reality. But he finds that reality and perception are often quite different.
