Hi Sarah,

When i was younger i would of gone with the whole he compleats me..........CRAP.

Now a little older and wiser i say he complements me. My husband complements who i am, as a whole person on my own, which makes us a great team, as i complement who he is.

I dont think anyone other than yourself can make you happy, and thinking that someone can is only going to lead to unrealistic exspectations. and ultimate disapointment trust me ive been there.

Woman have for far to long been indoctranated with the white night syndrome, one thing i hope i can save my daughter from.

before my husband i could easily say fuck off to guys and be content, but my husband is my best friend, he is my other ( and sometimes better) half.

As for making me happy, yeah he does, and my happiness does sometimes depend on him being around, but i am my own person and i do stuff that makes just me happy. Its like yin and yang , we just work lol i dunno how else to explain it And then add our daughter in the mix and she is our lil ray of sunshine ( when she isnt screaming while hanging on my leg and tripping me lol)

I happy to finally enjoy my life with two amazing people.

i'm always negative, i believe my husband won't be with me forever, whether it be divorce, an accident either way, an affair, or just old age death so i make sure it's not just the man that makes me happy, infact it's mainly my family that make me happy, blood is thicker than water

Absolutely not! Happiness is something that is found within ... not a gift to give and receive. Also, you should be complete w/in yourself ... if you look to a man to complete you then you will never be complete. You aren't supposed to be two halves making a whole ... you should be two wholes walking the same path. Of course, it took a few mistakes for me to figure this out but it's the real deal now!!

I feel complete with my husband but that doesn't mean I would be less of a person without him. I feel like I lucked out and found the right person to be with. If he happened to be a woman I'd still be with him (her?). He's my best friend. I don't think any woman NEEDS a man...but every woman needs love from some one. Whether that be a good friend, a partner, husband, etc...which ever. We all need love but I don't think we need to rely on another human being to be considered a whole person.

I think a man can make you more happy, if they are good to you. But they cause a lot of stress. I'm in a situation where my kids dad whom I have been with half of my life, loves me more than ever due to the fact that I left him 7 months ago, and then there is the one I started seeing that also says he loves me and wants to marry me. I feel I have lost the love for my kids father after all that we have been through but I know for me it was too soon to give my heart to someone else and too soon to involve another man in my childrens lives. Now I feel that I'm ready to give my heart to him but I still feel so stuck. So for me, men are a lot of drama right now! Sorry just needed to vent.

I, personally found single parenting was not my forte, some moms are so great at it, I just couldn't keep up. That's really great for you that you are single and loving life that way!

Hi Sarah,

My honest opinion is that you have to be happy within yourself to let someone else love you, you should be able to live your life happily with or without a companion. I have a wonderful husband and please dont get me wrong if something happened to him, obviously i would be devistated, but i do not believe u have to have a lover to be happy! Everyone should be happy with themselves!! Its so important!

Well i rely on my man to make me happy...he is my other half..without him there is no family. He is my best friend, lover, life partner if he wasn't in my life i don't think i would be as happy as i am. None of my friends or family make me laugh like he does and none of them know me as well... bit thats just me, i think I've got a keeper.

I cant answer that one, I have become a bit of an island since having kids, i dont often see any of my old friends we just have nothing in common anymore. And my sister moved away last year, so im all alone as it where. Thankfully i am happy with my own company, as if i was not i would have been put in a padded cell long ago...LOL..
