I Haven't Always Felt This Way

I posted elsewhere that for the last 15+ years, I have been in some sort of romantic relationship. I divorced my husband earlier this year and jumped into a new physical relationship within a couple of months. That ended I started seeing someone else within a couple of weeks. That new fling has also ended because the guy wanted to get into an exclusive relationship - I am not yet ready for that.

I have decided that it will be good for me to spend some time alone and I am glad this group exists. I have realized that my self worth does not depend on some guy having a sexual interest in me. I have men and women friends who just want to hang out and get to know me. I don't have to lie about being in a relationship to be friends with guys. The ones who are truly interested in me as a person will stick around and be a friend while others will disappear and that is ok. I am ok.

I agreed with you...after few times getting close with some guys (I am divorced too) I also realized that i am not ready for a new serious relationship and now I decided to enjoy being alone or hang out with friends. Life is so beautiful if you enjoy it. So, give time to yourself :)
