Being in a relationship is like a bed of roses but the alternatives can be worse. How say ye? (11)

I have been single for a few months now and is seeing life from a different perspective. I can flirt with whoever I want and don’t have to plan for the likes and dislikes of a significant other.

But sometimes the other side of the bed is cold...sigh

I would not give up the freedom and flexibility of my life for anyone, and I do mean ANYONE. First of all, “ love” is an ideal seldom realized. And, recovering from a broken relationship is generally long and painful, and all too frequently irreparable. Get some flannel sheets, a small space heater, and perhaps a small dog or cat. I’m not saying it can’t happen, but the odds are NOT good...go to a department store and get the sheets and heater. Then stop by the Humane Society and rescue a pup or kitty. Don’t find yourself in anguish over another person. It’s just too difficult to unwind. Be smart.handshake

Yes the other side of the bed is cold, but you only sleep on one sidewink

It's good to have a break, stand back and have a look at things then start againcool

Start again with a clear mind, having learned from your last experiencecheers

The quality of the bed of roses would speak for itself.
If the roses are so abundant as to outnumber and protect from the thorns it should remain a bed of roses that far outweight 'the alternative' ...

Good suggestions but I am a bit allergic to cat hair and dander. Dogs take up too much time - given I work full time - and I don't want to be like my neighbor who just let the dog out in the backyard and never cleans up very mad

I take it that most peeps are on this website to meet someone - or at least until someone comes along. We all want to get into another relationship but is it always worth it in the long run? We usually have to learn about the new persons likes and dislikes..and my philosophy is: if you tell someone about something you don't like and they or you keep doing it then then there is a problem because that minor straw will break up the relationship eventually doh

We all have to do that eventually, but should we even try for a new relationship when the results might be the same? We all have our likes and dislikes...and if I meet a woman who says she is a vegan but I am an omnivore should we just continue moving on..or try to make it work? laugh

In my opinion, that what you mention, isn't something to disagree on , unless you are joking??

You can't go into a new relationship thinking that it will go the same way as the last one,
go into it with a positive frame of mind, and maybe you could become a vegetarian laugh

I hear you hug

And yes, I did meet a vegan...and while she has all the goodness of a woman ,she said she had not eaten meat since she was young. So there I am thinking about my steaks, hamburgers, BBQ chicken...daydream but I guess she could not bear the thought of hooking up with an omnivore so she cut the cord..

So back to square one: what will the next lady favour...may whips and chains? uh oh

You are an experienced woman so you should know that what a person shows you when you first meet is not always who they are..I once discovered a woman's false teeth after we were dating for about a year and I never saw it again other than when it was in her mouth. laugh

Not many of us are able to tell in advance that our potential partner is not who they seem to be..especially when there is a spark and we have not been laid for a while.grin
