Most people complain because they're lonely. Is it so strange and incomprehensible that I just...need my alone time? And that it happens to be most of the time? I feel like I just got out of a big, crushing, commitment filled relationship. I need time to be me, to discover me, to feel free of that. Just for awhile. I dont want to be COMPLETELY alone. I want friends, definitely. In fact I'd love for more friends. But just want time to have fun and discovering me. Not forever. Just for a little while. Why is that too much to ask for?

    I just went through the same ordeal...and I just posted my story about my psychopath ex destroying me. Nothing wrong with alone time--if they cant respect that, screw em. I am at a stage where I want to be alone, and soul search--try to repair my spirit--if this is even possible.

    It was all summed up for me by the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer who wrote

    "Whoever cannot be alone should beware of community.

    Whoever cannot stand being in community should beware of being alone"

    That sounds logical. I just got out of a 40 year marriage. Even when I was in the marriage and it seemed to be working, "Me Time" was very important, now it is a must. While I do miss more than just friendly female companionship, I am not looking for anything intimate - yet. Now is the time for reflection and reevaluation.

    Interesting. Why do you feel that you need to ask: "why is that too much to ask?"

    (recharging ones batteries is perfectly logical, especially if it has been a draining sort of relationship.)

    Happened to flip back to date... how are you doing now?
