Divorced, one child, good career, house almost paid off is how I would describe myself.
I have tried the online dating and dated couple people but I end up being frustrated and unhappy because I might get the "emotional" part of relationship, but than I find myself in situations where partner either has many kids that he has to support, does not want to move, is not financially stabile.... and I end up stressing over things lot more than if I was single. I guess I just want a relationship that is going to better me altogether instead of adding additional stress to my life. I take two trips every year with my son, one to Colorado skiing and other to Florida during summer. None of the partners I dated was able to do that. I don't mind sharing finances, but really I don't want to worsen my situation. As far as my experience goes, my partners have had kids and responsibilities, which I understnad, but I really don't want to give up what I have now just to be in a relationship.
I have been single now for a year and people question me why. Honestly I am not unhappy. I do miss hugging on someone at night but I am really strugelling to give up the comfort zone that I have being single for hugs at night but additional stress in my life... But is my behavior normal?
