Should I be concerned? I have completely lost all interest

in being in a relationship.  It just doesn't seem worth the trouble.  I have two awesome kids, a great career, a loving family and plenty of friends.  I feel like I don't have time either, sometimes I work 50+ hours a week, my kids are in several activities and I have a pretty busy social calendar.  I feel like everyone else in my life is either in a relationship or seeking one.  I feel like I must be weird for not wanting a relationship.  Am I weird???

No. Enjoy your busy, happy life. If you ever change your mind, the dating scene will still be there.

Have you really lost all interest or are you so used to your schedule and the things that keep you busy you question how you would work it into your life?
When all the kids stuff is done and they are grown then what?
A friend of mine used to say the same thing as you, now the kids are grown and doing their own thing and she is alone. She has said multiple times that she regrets not making time for herself to be in a relationship.

I found hubby at a time I was happy with what life was giving me and so not looking. I figured I'd be happy just me and my "baby ". Then I ran into dh and life changed. I think a relationship can happen when you least expect it. :) Keep doing what your doing.

You are actually in a good place. First, you sound happy and are not desperate. Why don't you put a profile on a dating website. Once a month make yourself go on One date. If you are not feeling it then don't go on another date.
This way you are still out there, meeting new people. You never know, you might meet prince charming, or you might meet a bunch of duds. If nothing else you will have something to laugh about with your female friends. Just don't shut yourself down in the love dept. You never know who you might meet.

Not at all! I totally was in that stage for a couple years before I met my husband. I almost didn't even let my friend set me up with him. I was so against getting into a relationship.

If it works for you, what does it matter.
