I am looking forward to becoming a part of this forum. I have found myself lately really longing for a relationship again. Since my divorce over 10 years ago, I have had no contact with my ex and have raised my daughter completely on my own.
My Mom retired a few years ago and moved in with us for the most part is incredible HOWEVER there is a huge issue with no privacy and dating? Forget it.
All of that has been ok because like most of the women that I am reading about on here, I have chosen to throw myself in my work.
I need more though. I feel it inside of me that craving and desire to be a wife again and to have a husband. Having someone that you can trust that will always have your back sounds so beautiful in theory but after being hurt, it just harder and harder to jump back in.
I tired the dating sites a few times but it was just genuinely not my thing. There is a stigma attached to it yes however I found that the plethora of choices on both sides makes it very difficult to not just dismiss someone because of a quirky habit as you know that as soon as you start looking, many more possible candidates pop right back up thus starting the cycle again.
So why this monologue? Well, it may not seem possible from my candor here however I am very private and I have always been tasked as the problem solver. The one who doesn't need any assistance ever and can take care of everything. I am an extreme giver and love nothing more than making people happy in every aspect of my life.
Now with my daughter attending Summer Camp for over two weeks this summer, I am considering a big move to CT (I live in PA now) and well, starting over.
Its so important to me that I take these small steps to open up so even if no one reads this or responds, I appreciate the chance to open up and would welcome any feedback.
