Hi all -
I have technically been single for a couple of years after my divorce, however until recently (2 mos. now) we still continued to see each other sexually. I have dated a little here & there, but nothing major & I definitely haven't found anyone that either isn't married or someone that I'm attracted to enough to have sex with. I hear about people who go a year, two three or sometimes more w/out sex b/c they are single, but it's all new territory for me b/c I've either been in a relationship or lived w/someone for the last 12 years or more. There's nothing wrong w/celibacy, don't get me wrong, but I'm only 32 & I love sex! The difference now is, is obviously I'm older, wiser and a lot more picky about who I share my time etc. with and it seems its much more difficult to find someone that I would even want to have sex with, much less a relationship (If I found both, I think I would be in heaven!). To add to that, I'm busy with kids, a little jaded about relationships or if I ever even want to re-enter one & I'm laid off which makes me that much more hesitant to date etc. Hmmmmmm - quite a pickle huh??? I wasn't for the divorce in the first place, I find nothing desirable about being single & had he not gotten a new girlfriend, I would just still be sleeping w/the ex....I know that sounds bad, but it's just the truth, lol! Anyhooo - I'm new to this board, but will probably be lurking around it now...
