This is not a boo-hoo thread.
As some here may be aware, I am a divorced person. It’s been 12 years since the divorce. While the divorce wasn’t particularly nasty, the preceding marriage was emotionally exhausting. This has, no doubt, killed my motivation to attempt another serious relationship. Since then, while I’ve met some very nice women, I’ve not dated. Since I’ve not dated, I’ve also not boom-chick-a-wow-wow’d.
Which brings us to the point of the thread:
It took me several years to come to terms with being “alone”. I put “alone” in quotes there because I’m certainly surrounded by people at work and I do have a roommate (friend from work) so I’m not isolated alone, just very, very single. I’m (mostly) OK with it now and realize that my lifestyle (such as it is) isn’t super-conducive to time-sharing and most times I don’t think about it.
Having said all that:
Is there anyone else in here who is, by fate or design, celibate? Are you OK with it? Do you feel like your life is missing something?
