    I keep thinking about this

    so I just wanted to get my words out somewhere. I was in a relationship for a few years. We currently still live together. We could not be together anymore, too much fighting. I felt like my life was unimportant and consumed by this relationship. But now I am moving forward...

    Back Into The Water

    So after months of reckless and somewhat desperate romantic encounters following the break up of my marriage, and a period of much needed isolation, I have found myself wading into the dating pool again. This time it is very different. I have been spending more and more social...

    Still holding out for meeting someone the old fashioned way.  I'm practicing the art of being approachable.  It's not easy.

    It's Time.

    One way I've dealt with breakups in the past is jumping right back into relationships, never learning or growing. This time, though, I've taken a lot of time to reflect on things. I have changed myself deeply and become a much better and happier person. I don't blame myself...

    Officially Dating, Yes

    Giddy..that's what I am about it. Giddy. After 4 months of being cold and alone, untrusting in total, self esteem in the sub sub basement, I've forced myself out of it. No one was going to pull me out of the ditch but me, nobody was going to give me the necessary power to...

    New Rule...no Divorcees

    Years ago when I was single, I dated a married man. He was considerably older than me, financially secure and childless. It was one of my few dating rules, I didn't date men with children. If he had time to play with me, he should be playing with his children. That was the only...

    Like Riding a Bike, Over a Cliff

    With time, I knew I would meet somebody, I've always been good at making friends, but when I started dating after 19 years of marriage, the one thing I was pretty sure I didn't want was any complications, so I approach everything with total honesty...
