Lonely??? Hmmmm....


Funny. In the last week or so I have been asked 4 times if I m lonely, or comments have been made that " You MUST be". Why?? Because I choose not to go out partying all the time, or dont have anyone permanent or even semi-permanent in my life? Maybe I give off the impression that I am ( how, I dont know. I m not!). It did get me thinking though. One comment wouldnt have, but 4 was too much of a coincidence.
I came to the conclusion that the loneliest I have ever been was when I was married,and it has saddened me greatly to realise that. The physical presence was there, sure. But that was about it. Everything was so geared and focused on his needs,wants and whims that I guess in the end he forgot that there were two of us in that so called "partnership". In fact, I m probably suprised he even rememembered my name sometimes haha. ( in fact, once, making love (if it could be called that) he called me by his ex wifes name. Easy done I guess (shrugs).
Anyway, knowing what loneliness is, I can honestly answer the comments and say, No, I am not. I have never been happier or more content in my whole life. I have many, many friends, both in life and on AdultFriendFinder, for which I am thankful and appreciate greatly. As to anyone permananent or even semi permanent in my life, I dont think I can even contemplate that right now. Maybe thats what is causing people to question me. But, honestly, do you HAVE to be in a relationship to be happy?? To make others happy? To conform to their ideas of how life should be?? Perhaps I m too selfish for that - I am only looking at my OWN happiness, not anyone elses idea of what I "need" to be (their version) of "happy". The friends who love and know me best know that.

Sigh....

That's scary! Not you or your past, but me in the present. My life. Maybe it is just a midlife crisis? I truly do feel lonely in my relationship. I too, have my life revolving around her. All my family and friends are out of here, refering to this mundane pattern. But, I have to think of the child. Damn, I'm glad I found you all. Thanks!

I have to say, I know exactly what you're saying. I've been in the position of being lonely with someone else there ... and I never want to go down that road again.

As far as I can see, being in a relationship may be part of a happy life but it's not necessary for you to be happy. If you've found a life which suits you - for the time being - grab it with both hands and don't let anyone make you question it. You can always change your mind when it suits you - woman's prerogative x

Do as TQ says - grab it with both hands. I can't wait for him to turn round if it's gonna take two hands!

GMB..scarey is right. I think, in any partnership/marriage the word equality doesn t exist. There will always be a dominant and a less dominant partner. Thing is, how far do you go? The big question is, though, if you loved them or they loved you enough to make that comittment, why do they want to change you/ you them - just because youre a couple??

Dizz ... I have known some relationships which seem to be based on a fundamental equality with just that give and take on both sides that's necessary in any relationship. Not often, it's true, and not any long-term relationship I've been in, but some. They're the ones that seem happiest, strangely enough ...

And, just for you ...{turns around}

Dizzy, usually the people who comment on how lonely someone must be are the loneliest ones themselves. Savor your life just as it is.

P.S. Don't tell Q...but (butt?) perhaps the two of us could persuade him to turn around? BB3
