Think I Might Be Miserable? Think Againlets see... I've been single for..2 plus decades! Yikes! you say? perhaps.
Over that time I've discovered that I really am a very good person (now) and I just don't need anyone to "validate" me or my life.
I have friends who I speak with and see occasionally. I'm gregarious and I believe am of average intelligence so I am perfectly comfortable striking up a conversation with anyone including complete strangers. I've been told I am not too bad on the eye (which I guess helps a lot).
So, yes, I have been single way too long, but it doesn't bother me, not one bit, and now my life has more fulfillment and meaning than it ever did in the past.
I like myself (others seem to like me too). I'm confident, I like to read and learn new things. Mostly I am perfectly comfortable in my own skin.
