It’s MUCH better than being in a dead-end relationship.
I know a few people in that kind of relationship.
Sometimes it just makes me want to scream – HOW CAN THEY BE IN A RELATIONSHIP WHILE I’M NOT?!
But truthfully, I haven’t met anyone who I think could be long term material.
When I look back on the last 14 years since my divorce, I realize that I wasn’t ready for a permanent relationship.
I needed some work.
Dare I say it:
I was a little unbalanced and needed time to process.
Now that I’ve had the time to work on me, I’m still not finding anyone out there who is appropriate for me.
And it worries me for one reason:
I feel like I’ll never love again.
It’s not being single that bothers me (cuz it’s kinda fun), it’s the thought of being ENDLESSLY single that bothers me.
The idea that part of my life is over with somehow and will never ever be resurrected scares me.
I’ll never have a plus one for weddings.
I’ll always drive my tires bald because there’s no one to remind me to change them.
I’ll never have to question where I’m spending the holidays because it’s just me.
But most of all I worry that I’ll never fall in love again.
And as fun as casual sex is, I’m kinda hoping for something a little more stimulating.
I said it.
I want more.
