....and for the last 3mos. or so, it has been weighing very heavy on me. Up until recently, I have been just fine because dealing w/men can be such a hassle at times & I wanted no parts of it. But I miss all of the attention from the opposite sex, intimacy, etc. Ugh!! I'm lonely as hell, but all I have, for now, is an fwb.

I have been child-free since Weds. and will be until tomorrow at 6p. I should be snuggled up w/a beau, not frustrated about being lonely. Its making me soft; sometimes I can't help but to cry. I don't mean to whine about it, I'm just so frustrated and I feel weak & very vulnerable. I am a very strong person, and the fact that this is weighing on me so much is driving me nuts.

I just wanted to vent a little. Thanks for listening.

I did try the online dating at the beginning of this year and met some nice guys. I'm thinking about doing it again, though.

Usually, I am fine...great, as a matter if fact. But, now, it's taking a major toll. Honestly, I keep thinking it'll pass....hasn't happened yet.

Tobe completely honest, there are 2 reasons...

1: I don't want to start over; event though I know that's a must to move forward.

2: I have been having self esteem issues.

I am 31 and I want to get married and have another baby some day, but I have gotten too complicated...even for me.

And on top of all of that, I really want to be in a relationship....but not desperately, though. Not just anybody, at all. I'm sooo lonely and I need the interaction. Issue after issue, huh? Lol.

I don't really have advice on how to get over that, because I had times I felt like that. I would try to go out with gf's, stay longer at work,  anything to take my mind off being alone. I was happy when I was dating someone but it hard when you dont have someone steady. I guess just keep putting yourself out there.

I am single too. It doesn't bother me often. I go to school full time and have my son 24/7. I don't have the time or money to be able to date.

I've been single for almost 2 years now and have dated but I honestly don't think I'm ready to move on since my divorce. I had a fwb and that made me feel like shit. I'm good enough to have sex with and go on dates with but not good enough to be someone's future wife so I ended that and feel much better about myself. I think when you're ready it will happen.
