Round 27 (??) of trying to find a man.
I write this now as I try not to think of my latest break-up after a 1-2 month relationship. On the bright side, I've broken up with all of them, and not the reverse. (All except one). I have just become very picky and unable to put up with anything less than awesome treatment. I guess that isn't a bad thing.
I have been thinking of how sad it is that Iraq veterans become so fucked up. I have now dated two who seem like happy, healthy, successful men... until I dig a little deeper under the surface and see how ridden with anxiety and fear they are. They put up so many barriers which makes it nearly impossible for them to have a normal relationship; despite the fact that they are desperate to find just that, settle down, and have a family.
Sigh, I'm not going to dwell on that. I'm just going to learn from it and consciously decide never to date a veteran again.
Additionally, I've decided to go on a hiatus from men, dating, and sex. I tried this before, unsuccessfully. But I'm a much stronger person, now. I need to "clear my energy," if you will. Focusing so much on men and dating has absolutely drained my energy and happiness. My head has been spinning with it. So, I'm done for awhile.
Things to look forward to in the near future:
-My travels, as usual. And making the most of them.
-Making homemade vanilla extract for Christmas presents this year.
-More friend & family time!!
-Undertaking some sort of project--art, re-organizing, or otherwise. (Need to do more thinking on this).
-Starting an online shop selling vintage clothes & accessories. (Really excited to do this, but I'm trying to think of what I can do to set it apart from the zillions of other vintage shops out there.)
-Working out more; I've gotten away from this.
-Writing more about my travels. So many interesting things happen!
Ok, blogging therapy, over. And I feel better!!! :)
