Hi everyone, this has become an interesting conversation about anxiety and the desire to partner. I appreciate everyone sharing their different experiences and desires.
@Kissa, your point is well taken and I'm sorry you feel lonely even in marriage. I know partnering isn't an ultimate solution.
As someone who's been single mostly, I am eager to give the partnering life a try. And we all have to find happiness wherever we are.
@Raggamuffin, I can see that too. Some people are happier on their own. If I wasn't a hopeful romantic, that might be an easier option.
@Asuka, that's great you're trying online dating. I hope you give it a chance!
@Tina, yeah in Chicago the gay pride month is big. I'll keep my eyes open.
There's someone I've met online recently. And we hope to get coffee soon. So crossing my fingers. You never know when you might find the one. Or at least one of the ones.
