    it's been almost five years

    for me and I think it's going to stay this way for some time. Certainly not ready to trust again.

    Last month was the 5th anniversary of being

    single and what would have been our 10th anniversary. Tried as hard as I could to be the best boyfriend I could be, but it wasn't enough

    I don't usually date a long time

    because I am sometimes too impatient in relationships. Some guys get scared. I talk a lot and they want other things to happen. I split up from my last boyfriend in the summer. I have just been "helped out" by friends with some "relief".

    Yes, I guess it has been "way too long" now.

    I do not even know how it came to be so long. Time has just passed very promptly. At first it was all about healing, then becoming more healthy then it was about work. Now, I no longer even know what it's about lol. Sometimes I wonder if I may not simply always be this way. I...

    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.

    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. :)
