Well, I'm single and try to stay happy about it, but that's difficult.
Just broke up with a guy who I had a wonderful emotional and physical relationship with, but I couldn't handle his materialistic ways and he was
always too worried about what other people thought. I miss him and hope he comes around to realize that you can't buy what we had, but I'm not
holding my breath.
Meanwhile, I live in the cess pool of the dating world, so no real hope here of finding someone new.
Isn't life great?
I've decided that if I don't find someone soon, I'll just get rid of what I can and travel. There's a lot of places I want to see (if WWIII
doesn't break out) and it's a lot easier having a fling when you know you're just on vacation. This way, you both know that there isn't going to
be anything else and you won't be bumping into each other at the grocery store and having that uncomfortable "how've you been?" conversation.
My parents and sister have great marriages and I'm still left in the cold, which is probably my problem. I meet a lot of men who want to date me, but
none of them seem right and I'm not going to settle. I'm also a nurturer and don't believe that I'll be happy unless I find someone who wants me
to be there for them and vice versa. I'm just one of those girls who wants to know that I'm needed as well as being included in the things they
enjoy. If my man's sick, I'm more than happy to go to the store for medicine or anything else that would make him feel better. It just sucks that
the men I've met are the type who just tell you what you want to hear so you'll stay around. You can only believe the BS for so long until you
realize that you're being played for a fool.
Honestly, I'm not about to lower my standards. I'm not going to settle down until I meet a man who's honest and appreciates what I do for him. It
makes me sad to think that I might never meet the right man, but then I think of my friends who have settled and how horrible their relationships are
and I know that being single is better than settling for less than I deserve. Having a fulfilling marriage is wonderful, but being single and not
being shackled to the wrong person is even more fulfilling. At least when you're single, you can go where you want to and even move to a new place
when you feel like it without having to compromise and uproot someone.
