I Have Been Single For Way Too Long

    But I'm scared to go back into dating.

    I feel like every guy is like my ex. Like they're gonna make me feel I'm not enough and make me look stupid. 😞

    TBT, I've never really had a true girlfriend;

    the most I've had was a few online relationships that never really got anywhere. All I really want is someone I can be close to, someone who trusts me, someone who I can say "I love you" to, and I want someone who can do the same for me. Is that really so much to ask?

    I was single the first 36 yrs of my life.

    Then I was married for 17 yrs. Now I have been single for a little over a year. I am happier now than when I was in a bad marriage. I hate sleeping alone. I am not sure if I will marry again. I would like to be in a dating relationship though.

    I would rather be single

    than be in a bad relationship. What about you? I know eventually I will say "Love to love you, Baby." again in a joking way, but when are eyes meet, she knows it is true. :) Until that day comes, I'll be fine living my life in solo flight.

    Things would be so much easier

    and life better if men and women had more respect and kindness for each other. Imagine how much more fun we would have together without any abuse and hard feelings. Being safe and comfortable with each other would be like heaven. :)

    It's been three years

    since my last relationship, yes being single at first is fun, but after sometime passing by, it gets very lonely. Meeting the right person has become a very difficult task to accomplish. I'm not giving up, but the hardest thing is finding someone to give you a chance.

    Honestly, I'm enjoying it. I would look to date and make friends but I'm totally fine with taking my time. I think some people want to get married sooo bad bc they've reached a certain age or feel empty. Love will come on its own time...no need to rush.
