People keep telling me "you wont be on your own long" and "you are so attractive it wont be long before you meet someeone else".
I cant understand why anyone would think i could even trust anyone else again in a relationship. OR be interested again.
I think about me now. I do want a friendship but only on my terms and it doesnt include sharing my home and lifestyle now. I know I have now become selfish as to my needs now, too long caring about somebody else tells me make time for yourself now. Feeling the same. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I’m looking forward to being ‘me’ again, the person that got lost 18 years ago after being moulded and shaped by that alien being without me even realising. That ‘me’ was placed in a little canopic jar inside a gilded tomb and has been waiting ever since …to exhale.

Looking back now, I won't be any more lonely than I have been, or on my own more than I have been, raising a child on my own as I have been or even be without a husband more than I have been during my marriage. All that will change is that the restrictions of the contract will be lifted.

But, I like being ‘me’ I enjoy my own company; I have lots of interests which I must have unconsciously been developing for times like these. And I have my son, the biggest… and cheekiest joy in my life!!

Do I need somebody else? Not in any hurry thank you. Maybe after I have had a full convalescence and even then he has to come with full brain vs pp analysis and a lifetime warranty. No more dodgy contracts for me!! :)

Well there seems to be a split in the camp:unsure: I suppose even though I am divorced I am still hurting inside, I miss cuddles on the sofa, holding hands walking the dog, long lazy Sundays somebody telling me they love and appreciate me...........but saying that I have gone without those things for neally 28yrs (and thats not a joke). Im craving the "comfort" things at the moment, which does not include sex. There must be men out there who dont think im gagging for it !!!!! is it that obvious!!!:woohoo:

I dont think you do need anyone at all. It depends how good you are at being on your own. I think you need to decide early on that this is what U want. Because you get very independent and this affects things. Chris
