Story The Second

I answer too many questions. Maybe it's time for me to begin writing a few stories every now and again.

So yeah... I'm single, as this group states.

Single for over a year now, sexless for a little less than that.

And to be honest, the longer I remain single, the more I like it. I like my independence, and feel less and less compelled to actively pursue anything with the opposite sex, and just as selective when they attempt to pursue something with me. I've gone on a few dates, though not lately, but without any interest on my part, for the most part.

I have my own ambitions and aspirations, and I don't feel the need to get involved with anyone, get sidetracked.

Unless I get swept off my admittedly leaden feet, I don't see me dating any more until I get out of college. Perhaps wasting the butt end of my college experience, but I'm okay with that. I'm satisfied with myself, and comfortable with who I am. I am not defined by who I'm with, and never was. Which was hard for some guys I was with to understand. They were not the center of my universe, and I don't expect to be the center of theirs. Maybe if I find someone as independent as I (that of course holds my interest), I'll end up having a lasting relationship.

Until then, the only person I'll be wining and dining is myself; a person I admittedly love.

Ive been single for a year and I love it. All relationships come with an obligation to compromise or sacrifice. Im in no rush to jump back into that. I have a friend that cant handle being alone. As soon as she ends a relationship she's obsessively looking for a new one. All this says to me is that she has no idea what real love is. Its sad. I'd rather be single for another 10 years than settle for anything less than the real thing.

U just haven't met the correct man. I met my lover at uni last year in feb. Been in a steady relationship with him since the end of march. We're both incredibly fussy people. Amazingly enough, we share many whims. He's not the centre of my universe and I'm not the centre of his. We are totally independent people that have a mutual interest field. Like a venn-diagram. Once u meet someone like that, u realize just how amazing a relationship can be

wow i like this!! gives confidence :)

I try to be inspiring to others :)

you did good!

I concur. I've been single for almost 5 years now, but I'm cool with that. If I was the center of anyone's universe I think it would make me uncomfortable.

I know! I would feel too pressured to live up to their expectations of me, or feel smothered and such. I just want someone who lets me do my own thing, and happens to be there some of the time. Or like the title of that movie, someone I can eat cheese with.

XD never heard of the movie, but ya something like that.

Ok, another beautiful story! Your right, being Independent is a great thing to bring into a relationship,as he should be.

Thanks!

woot! Good for you babes
