New year, decade blues

LilBlackCat posted 12/31/2019 12:16 PM

I haven't posted in a long while, I guess.. as nothing has changed.. While generally things are good.. Kids are good, work is hectic as always..

I am still single.

I try to go out and strike up convos at stores and other places.. Either all women I run into are already married (no ring tho) or there's no sign of any interest at all.

Can't help but feel down.

I have done my best to try and not look over the fence, but got an unwanted glimpse the other day when I was helping my daughter take her stuff into her mom's mouse.. A bouquet of flowers from a "friend" and later my younger daughter told me that there's different friends that her mom has..

As it started, and continues.. Her life is grand with no lack of companionship and romance..

Yet, my life still sucks in that arena.

I really miss having someone in my life.. kids and pets are fun.. but it's not the same.

Sorry, just have nowhere else to vent this out to.

Vent away, LBC. New year, new opportunities around the corner. Try to stay optimistic (I know, sometimes easier said than done)!

LBC,
Vent away.
Looking over the fence is normal.
Being pensive and letting the mind wander into subjunctive is normal too.
My children live with me when not at college now. former spouse is 400 miles away. My closing FB and other social media accounts helped with NC. One of my children is still in contact, but house rules here prohibit use of speaker phone and video chats so the former spouse does spy nor intrude here.

It's new years eve and I'm here on SI instead of out celebrating. Glad I dropped in. Hope you feel better soon.

Color me skeptical but are emotionally stunted people truly capable of real HEA? I would argue they’re really good at faking it; so good at it, they make the rest of us question our emotionally healthy choices

This is what gets me sometimes. How can he easily find someone to take care and love while I suffer being left behind and alone? I know healing should come first before dating, but will I ever truly heal enough to be someone again?

Maybe they are great at faking it, they faked it with us for a long time. We'll never truly know.
