    Off The Market For 12 Years, Back On For 6 Months

    Hello! Just got out of a 12 year marriage with my unfaithful, abusive Marine. I started profiles on dating websites and have yet to meet any one that really interests me. Well, I did, but he turned out to be still married! :-( I cancelled all my dating website memberships...

    Time For Fun

    I've been in a strenuous relationship for the past 3 years with a bloke who I though was my soul mate but things couldn't have been further from the truth. For two years I did everything he told me to, I completely changed from being a fiery red-head to a quiet, bumbling idiot...

    Up until last month my partner

    and I had been together for four and a half years. It's really hard to adjust back to a life caring for only yourself after so many years of having someone by your side every day. I cry a lot now.
