Ooh boy this one is a doozy.
I'm single. Very single. But truthfully, I kind of prefer it that way.
It goes a little like this. Pretty much every relationship I've had has ended in a dramatic, overplayed, drawn out mess. Every one. So it's easier on my part to just stay as far away from them as I can until I'm finally finished with school, I'm thinking. But at the same time, I am human(despite what you'd ask the exes). I have needs. However, I'm a respectful young man. One that was brought up with the values that to just randomly pick up women in bars for this purpose is not appropriate. I'm also of type of man that doesn't exactly cultivate friendships with women who are okay with or even want that sort of thing. Now don't misconstrue what I'm saying, this isn't intended to be a "Oh pity me" sort of thing, just a kind of explanation of what the post is supposed to address. I am content. Trust me.
If I had to guess though, the truth is, I'm self sufficient when I get involved in a relationship. There isn't much take, in the give and take department. And I think that causes strife. The women I've been involved with are generally the type that in another world would be considered almost helpless at times(most times). And for a person like me, that solves problems on my own, and doesn't need to spend all my nights out socializing with people or flaunting who and what I am and can get, it will cause issues. It has.
So when you put those two together, you begin to see kind of why I'm single. To add to it, I'm not clingy, and I rather enjoy my own free time to do with as I wish, especially with as limited as my free time gets.(and will get by next fall). So do I want to stay single? No. I'd say not. But I'm not looking. At this point I'm of the opinion that if the right gal comes along, one that realizes and can accept me for who I am, then we will talk. But in the mean time, I'll just plod along, doing my thing as I go.
