Well, I thought that I was ready to start a relationship...but I am not. A lot of things have happen in my life so quickly and I feel I need to slow down. Probably, as I move on I need sometime by myself to figure things out. I need to allow myself the chance to date, not hook ups, and give myself the chance to fall in love again, find myself again. I come out of a 22-year marriage. A lot of me was absorbed by the "us"...I lost myself. If I jump into a new relationship I won't allow myself the chance to rediscover the great person that I can be, funny, caring, fun to be around. Relationships take work. And I need time to work on myself first.
