Singleness

single too long

This describes me almost perfectly. I’m hard to know, and there are a variety of reasons for that. I have people in my life who occasionally express concern over the fact that I’m single and have mostly been single all my adult life. They’re not offering to introduce romance into our friendship. Sometimes they suggest I talk to some disaffected relative or other friend of theirs. There is a small spark of a desire to change my lifestyle and find a lasting relationship, but I don’t often act on it. So I live life as a single man. I’ve prided myself on being self-sufficient and taking care of myself. I don’t need anyone, nor do I want to, and it may be that I give off that vibe when I’m talking to a woman. Therefore I probably go into a relationship subconsciously sabotaging it. I’ll have to dig into that further.

  1. I understand this completely as I undergo this. However, if I was to change something about that quote it would be “it takes something extraordinary”. I find that because I’m self – sufficient I only choose things that make me happy. I’m fine on my own so prove to me that you’ll make me happier. I don’t do burdens. I don’t need you. So, make me want you.

  2. I agree with you as I find myself in similar positions. However, if I was to change something about the quote it would be how “it takes something extraordinary “. I find that because I’m so independent, I’m not pressured by the fear of loneliness or the need of security so I’m not in any hurry and I don’t put up with anything unnecessary. Instead, you need to show me that life if better with you than it is on my own. I don’t need you. So, make me want you.
