Sick Of It But Not Ready

As the title of the group says "I'm sick of being single", but in my heart I know I'm not ready for another relationship. I was married for 8 years then my wife decided that she didn't want to be married anymore so she moved out and took the kids with her. It's been just about a year since she moved out and I've thought about the possibility of starting a new relationship, but I know I still have things I need to sort out before I move forward. It's hard being alone after being married for most of your adult life, but I've realized that I need to be happy with myself and that I need to be able to stand on my own and not rely on anyone to complete me.

My mind is ready but my heart still has a little ways to go... :/

I just read your post. Sorry to hear about your divorce. It's been 5 years for me... Since my divorce I've been in two exclusive relationships. My last relationship ended for good 2 weeks ago but technically it had been over for the past 6 months. We tried to hang on to something that was gone which was the most important thing of all... that is LOVE. It is hard being alone I don't like it much but I totally agree with what you said " I need to be happy with myself" "not rely on anyone to complete me." I wish you all the best ; ) <br />

BTW If you ever need a friendly chat I'd love to be friends.
