So who am I and why did I create WithLuv.com?
My name is Paula and I’m a 37 year old female who’s been through her fair share of ups and downs in relationships. I have been in relationships that were controlling, abusive, and restrictive on my ability to grow as a person. About ten years ago I came to a fork in the road when I met someone online and I really struggled with which road to take. I had been dating someone prior to this for about three years and he was quite older than me and was pretty controlling in nature. When I met Shawn online, I found him to be totally unique and a real breath of fresh air but I was scared because he said he didn’t want to be in a relationship at that point.
That’s where the fork came in…my old beau came calling again when he learned about Shawn and wanted to get back together suddenly. I really struggled at this point because one side of me said to go back to what was comfortable, and the other side said I needed to step out of my comfort zone and see where this new relationship went. I ultimately decided to go down the new path with Shawn and I haven’t looked back since. Shawn has turned out to be my very best friend, my lifelong companion, and someone I can share my hopes and dreams with. He lets me be me and he doesn’t ever try to control me. We don’t ever fight but are able to talk about everything. My relationship with Shawn is what has really inspired me to create WithLuv.com so that everyone has access to stories, thoughts and ideas that can inspire them to find their best friend and lover, or to make their own relationships better and more fulfilling.
I've put my heart and soul into this site and I hope you really enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
