See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
It has been a while since my husband's death but I'm still not even close to ready for a new relationship. The thought is daunting at best. I mean, in all seriousness, my prime has long since passed me. I have had two relationships in my entire life and one of them was just a high school fling. The other turned into a ten year marriage. Honestly, the thought of dating again would have never even come up were it not for the fact that Squids has been at her grandparents' for almost a month now. It is just too quiet here.
I do wonder about what it would be like. I've never actually done any of the atypical dating activities, or actively sought out someone to be with. They just happened. I just can't see myself trusting someone as I did my husband. That level of trust left me vulnerable to a pile of emotional schrapnel aimed for my head.
I'm not exactly MILF of the Month either. I've grown mellow and plain, yet abrasive in my old age. Just writing this has convinced me that I'll stick to having a butt-load of cats instead. Yeah, crazy widowed cat lady. Love it!
Is the thought of dating again as scary for anyone else?
