I can easily say that I’m in the same place. It’s a lot harder than I anticipated to get over this one. It’s been a year and a half since the break-up, and I still have a hard time trusting people.
The one good thing I can say about this whole process is that I’m a lot more self-reliant than I used to be. It’s been a lot easier for me to roll with the punches life throws at me since I’ve been single. It’s not always pleasant, but I’ve got to look at the bright side, right? 3 years ago
Is learning to let go. It’s hard. Just when you think that you’ve let it go and can move on with your life, something pops up to remind you that the emotions are still there, the events of the situation still hurt, and you have to start the grieving process all over again.
It’s going to be a loooonnng time, my friends. 4 years ago
I want to find someone, damnit! but it’s just going to have to be the reality that I won’t find them for awhile… 4 years ago
I don’t know if I’m ready for sure, or if now is really the time in my life to start tinkering with my status, but I feel like I’m in a very positive place. I’ve become one of the most independent people I know. I’ve become more sound in my ideas and opinions. I feel a lot more solid than I did when I started this goal, but I won’t count it as “done” until I actually take the leap (and someone meets me halfway…). 4 years ago
I asked a man for his phone number in a roundabout sort of way. I still haven’t heard back, but I’m sure I’ll find out whether he will give it to me or not in the somewhat near future….That’s a step, right? 4 years ago
I’m always teetering on the edge of hope and despair. It’s either the fact that out of the 6 billion people in the world there has to be one for me, or the fact that I’m tired of getting jerked around by men who are looking for something to fill the void in their lives. Hope. Depsair. Hope. Despair…..when will it end?!? 4 years ago
There are a few men out there that I have interest in. About 2 weeks ago, I tried to invite one of them out to coffee, but he never called back (I still haven’t gotten a phone call…). Then last week, I invited the other out for pool, but he said it was “too late” or him to go out…..so, I’ve at least attempted the first step… 5 years ago
So, since my last relationship I have been doing everything in my power to avoid men. I made goals of celebacy and staying out of relationships, but I realized it was more about guarding myself from pain than it was about empowerment. Well, I’m tired of making excuses. I don’t want to live in an isolated shell, avoiding every opportunity that comes my way just because I’m scared I’ll get hurt. It’s not any way to live a life. 5 years ago
