I got out of my marriage (of 4 years) about 2 years ago and I still haven't been able to get into another relationship. Every time I think about having a boyfriend, it sounds like a headache to me. Sometimes I really wonder if I will be single for the rest of my life.

By the way, this has nothing to do with the possibility that I may not be over my ex husband. We're totally over each other. In fact, we are very good friends now.

That's funny. I always thought that you weren't over someone until you hated them with a graveyard passion.

Maybe it's just time that Pepper focuses on Pepper for awhile. I think we all go through that phase where being alone is necessary for our own personal growth. After all, you can't know what you want in a partner that will satisfy you until you know you.

if a son or daughter would make you feel complete
but no, you don't need someone else
you know, it's hard enough to learn to love yourself"

Only you will know when you're ready if ever. I do think that the longer you stay single, the harder it is to deal with someone again. You don't have to answer to anyone when you're on your own.

Yes, that's what I'm thinking as well. I feel that I have "been there" for my ex partners for way too long that sometimes I forgot to focus on myself. Maybe this is why relationships sound like a headache to me.
