Despite its position at the crossroads of many Mediterranean civilizations, it retains many characteristics of more rural regions bred of its isolation and distance from mainland Italy.One peculiar feature of the separateness of Sicilian life is the persistence of the , an organization dating from the Middle Ages that gradually evolved into a paralegal criminal brotherhood.The Greeks settled Sicilian towns between the 8th and 6th centuries in the east. Annual precipitation on the plains is 16–24 inches (400–600 mm), and in the mountains 47–55 inches (1,200–1,400 mm). The natural vegetation of Sicily has been greatly reduced by human influence, and forests occupy only 4 percent of the territory.Sicilians are a diverse people, having had contact with a great variety of ethnicities and physical types through the centuries.So, for me, I'm not looking to define myself, and I'm sorry if that is something that is seen as a rejection of or an unwillingness to embrace (my sexuality) in a public way, but it's simply not.
The basis for this decision was the length and strength of the recovery to date.
The rule is: if one person wants a relationship and the other hasn’t decided what they want, there should be a time limit on how long you should be tied up in the dating zone.
Because I know women and men are different when it comes to…well just about everything, I asked three guys how long it usually takes for them to decide if they want a commitment. They all agreed that if they are consistently (keyword: consistently), dating someone for about six to eight months, that next step should be coming soon. Every situation is different, but I’ve never dated someone consistently for a year and it ended in a relationship.
To me, this time spent meant that either we had gotten comfortable just dating and were subconsciously tied to just that, or simply put, maybe he just wasn’t into me.
Whatever the reason, one thing was clear: we were not going to be together.
