Hi GG, sorry the guy turned out to be such a pin head. But you're right, you don't want to be with such a guy anyway. Sounds like he was just waiting for an excuse to blow you off. No loss for you here.

But good for you. I know it's hard. I've been single all my life, and I was comfortable with it, never really thought about it, then fell in love, that didn't work out, ended 10 years ago, and really haven't felt comfortable at all about being single since. Went through all the exercises, eating alone in a restaurant, going places, traveling alone, etc. so I think it's great that you're getting to a good place.

I guess for the most part it's all about priorities. I've recently been phone and email communicating with a guy I met online, and even though I'm not real jazzed about it, he seems really interested, so I think I'm going to make a go of it, even if it turns out he's not really a guy I can get into. I can't take the shame anymore of my ex being happily married and here I am can't get a man to even take me out more than once, not even once in some cases. It's just too hard on my self esteem so this guy sounds really interested, but dating him will be hard work because he lives far away and is a signle father with sole custody of a young child, but it's important to me right now to move forward in some way and not just sit around being sad about being alone. I think most people who are in long term relationships settle in some way.

It's a process I guess. We move through different stages of life, learn our lessons, and do what we have to to get by. I wish you much luck in being successfully single!
