This is now becoming a thing, isn't it.

There definitely used to be quite a few who would try X for a while - not at all fully adapt to it - and leave it for Premier, AVID or back to stick with FCP Legacy. But it surprises me how many do that, and then look back at the thing they left, and start feeling real regret and actually start missing what's unique about X.

This group has seen that play out more than a few times.

Not all, of course - but that seductive idea of settling down with a better version of their first real NLE romance -one that kinda sorta stills feels like their long desired FCP Legacy 8 - really warms their hearts. So much that they're often OK with swallowing any uncomfortableness around the fact that the new date just won't do a tradirional committment, but rather insists that any relationship now entails a monthly forever allowance or she leaves and takes all her stuff with her (at least unless you start paying again.) And that's simply not negotiable.

And there's gorgeous little X out there, that once odd goofy and charming date that seemed maybe a bit too weird a while ago, now blossoming into a real stunner - and that folks are saying is not just light hearted and - well - FUN to hang with, but smart and efficient and flexible and seems totally happy with a nice mid priced get to know you date in the beginning, then never seems to need you to pony up to keep the relationship going thereafter.

Yep, she's culturally a bit different. Not so safe or standard. And you will have to adapt. But she comes out of an amazing family that's very, very accomplished, but one that takes risks and always seems to be figuring stuff ahead of the pack.

So what do you want? Safer choice? There's one of those available. More risk with more potential reward? There's a path toward that too.

Take your pick.
