For those of you don’t know, I recently got out of a seven year relationship. A relationship, that in all honesty, had been over for a very long time. We were no longer in love with each other and stayed together, because it was easier than admitting the truth.
Only I wasn’t. And, I’m perfectly happy moving on. But this seems to have divided my friends.
I have one friend who has always moved on quickly and admits that. But then I have another friend who thinks that I need to be single and have fun because I was in a relationship for so long.
I’m asking you guys what do you think? If it was you, what would you do?
I understand the whole ‘learn to love yourself’ and to enjoy your own company and, how it’s important to know yourself, before you embark on a relationship. I really do. But for everyone who knows me; I am who I am. I’ve not really changed since I was fifteen. I am comfortable being alone and, spending time by myself – I actually look forward to having an empty house!
I know people think that I’ve never been single as an adult, this is the time I need to take to enjoy myself. Now that would be great, if it weren’t for the fact that all my friends are either married or have boyfriends. Who am I suppose to enjoy being single with??
I feel like I’ve been left in an awkward position. No matter how long I wait, the next person I am with will be labelled as the ‘rebound guy,’ (a notion that I don’t believe in, might I add). But If I wait too long, the right person for me might walk on by.
Life’s not easy. And moving on seems to get more and more complicated the older you get.
