I don't have any friends that could come over and circle around my living room and have that big pow wow like they do on Oprah. Would be nice. Hoping this will compensate and maybe I can make some new friends here. Let's start with me:
30 years old-outside the home professional
dating a man for 7 years (no engagement)
He's currently in Iraq for the 2nd time
No children...2 jack russells
Living in this state with no family around. My job usually takes me out of state for several months at a time so I have not made any social contacts here.
Addictions: Gambling... A lot of money and time wasted into this industry.
Currently studying for a huge exam that will change my career path.
Feelings: Lonely for companionship...missing my man dearly...missing someone to talk about everyday issues...desiring words of encouragement and a pat on the back...He'll be home (hopefully) beginning of April. Anxiety towards this test. Am I smart enough? A lot of intense studying and still seems like I'm not up to speed. Insecurity...why hasn't this man asked me to marry him? Am I pretty enough...Am I smart enough...Am I stupid for sticking around...Am I just not marriage material...Impatience...my frustration level has been high lately. Are there other women out there that do not have people that they can open up to without feeling vunerable to judgement. Are there other women out there that feel like they are on a roller coaster of highs and lows. Sometimes I wish I was an individual that had long term friendships from high school, college etc... My very bestfriend died when the month she was supposed to turn 27 years old. That was 3 years ago. She was great. Miss her. Anyway, please respond...I look forward to meeting new friends here and establishing a place where we can pow wow. I would love to listen to triumphs, wow, and whatevers. Talk with soon. Mel
