Ahhh . . . the relief that can come from talking things out. The D.T.R. is generally something dreaded and avoided, I think, but in my very limited experience, I also believe that it is one of the best things ever. One of my friends recently stressed to me that "ABOVE ALL, the best thing in a relationship is open communication." A good D.T.R. certainly fits into that. It lets a person exhale and move on in the chosen path.
