Here’s why I have no problem flying solo instead of finding a partner: I focus better. I don’t have a man to distract me from accomplishing my goals and I become very dedicated and ambitious.
I reach for heights I would never attempt if I wasn’t on my own with no one to make me complacent. Having a man around is a serious drain on my time and energy.
or write things that will uplift me and give me hope? I'm just an a piece of mass taking up empty space and ruining the environment around me. I've had a very hard life to this point and a very hard childhood- I lost my mom when I was 3; I was forced by my dad and step mom to do the families grocery shopping, cook all the meals, do all the laundry- basically... All I've had is emotional pain, illnesses (which can't be treated) and abandonment. I no longer sleep properly, getting by on an hour of sleep every day. I am a published author, and I used to sing for a somewhat popular band.
I am not the person who lifts up spirits and is optimistic. for me, I've messed up everything I've ever done and lost all the ones I've tried to keep close. Then, during my second semester, i had PE instead of health. I really didn't care about it at first, but then, it was measurement day. So my whole life I've been much more intelligent than average. I know my life doesn't seem all that bad to everyone on the outside of me but on the inside there is only darkness.
When I’m single, I never feel torn between them and some guy I’m dating for the moment. When I’m not worried about someone else and the well-being of my relationship, I have more time to focus on my personal development.
I learn and grow and figure out all kinds of things about myself that I never see when I’m with a boyfriend.
As a senior woman, my online dating experience has been abysmal. The second man seemed interesting, and we met for coffee, but he seemed fascinated by the whole online dating thing and viewed it as a great social experiment. He didn’t seem very interested in me and the actual date, which was really disappointing.
I have tried it three times in all, each separated by a year or so. After talking a bit about our divorces, he said, “Well, this has been nice, but can we talk dirty next time? He asked me one question after another, but none of them were get-to-know-you date questions.I know that I need to learn to do the same thing while I’m dating, but for now, this single self-discovery suits me fine. I have less to distract me when I’m single and therefore I’m really committed to getting what I want.I never have and never will rely on a man to take care of me.I’ve decided I would rather meet men through friends and acquaintances in my own town, in my own way, even if it’s much slower.I am not a gambler, and meeting men from a website is too much of a gamble for me.Several of the girls had recently broken up with their boyfriends.
