Is it time for a moratorium on love?

Having said that, and b/c we seem to feel that there ARE other things besides love and r'ships in our lives, why don't we devote at least 1 day each week ON THIS BOARD to things in our lives BESIDES r'ships? Since we seem to feel so strongly that it's NOT all about finding and/or being w/The One, maybe we should take our minds off the subject COMPLETELY for just 1 day each week. Perhaps doing so will help all of us truly shift our focus onto things that really matter in our individual lives.
This idea came to me when I replied to Shywon's angst about the "Joe" saga. Maybe, by looking at things OTHER THAN "Joe" or "Harry" or whoever, we might be better able to see how great things are and how we should appreciate them more (or, conversely, how rotten things really are, in which case it's time to change and improve things for ourselves as individuals).
I say this b/c I've also come to see that, post-divorce, my life has actually taken a turn for the better, MUCH better; I just had to get my head out of that brown paper bag to see it. I mightn't have the Great Love I thought I had, but that doesn't mean that life isn't pretty terrific w/out it--and that love comes in all forms; I really appreciate the mute yet genuine affection from my cats now, and I take a real delight in their quiet companionship. There really ARE worse things than being single and/or alone...
Anyway, thought I'd share that for everyone's consideration...
