I must be dating myself dating songs boys
I asked questions I hadn't let myself ask before: It wasn't until I wrote the last sentence of the first draft of my first novel, something I'd wanted to do for years, that I looked around and realized what I had done: I'd been alone for over two years and I was more than okay with it.But in fact, I wasn't alone: I was essentially dating myself and we were about each other.Eventually, someone else can join this snuggly little relationship.Until then, I want to enjoy the feeling of being alone.
It was scary, to say the least, but it was also incredibly invigorating.
I went from living with my parents to living on my own with my daughter, before I married her father a few months before her 2nd birthday, and then living with my husband.
Even after that marriage ended and I married a 2nd time, my kids and new husband were still in the home with me.
My own feelings of loneliness were coming from a deep-seated notion that I was woefully misunderstood.
The second I realized I had been unconsciously putting all the energy I would've spent getting to know someone else towards getting to know myself, my life changed: Finally someone understood me and that person was me.
When people ask me who I'm dating/if I'm dating/why I'm still single, it’s hard not to get frustrated.
