So i've been told. I agree.

Working on it...then criticizing myself for not being a better person faster.

eHarmony is not supposed to let you on if you are still married.

OKCupid is where all the cool people are

I'll tell my friend. That's all good advice.

He definitely needs to let the body cool down. Maybe a cold shower or pictures of old nuns.

eta, I mean Squirell Nutkin will tell his friend. That's it.

Squirell's friend will be A-OK. Humor helps overcome many difficulties.

I can see the value of taking time to become content on one's own, refocusing on what's important to you as an individual. Values and goals that don't match are more of a problem between partners than interests that don't align.

That said, the loneliness in a long-term dying relationship is hard to bear, and it's very hard to resist falling into a rebound relationship.

eta - pictures of old nuns
that would cool anybody down!

The Loneliness of the Long Dying Relationship, that's on the shelf right after The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, isn't it?

I know. I wanted to ease years of pain, but i found i needed to ease it myself. No sex, or fluttery butterflies, or words of undying affection spoken by men who really just wanted to get into my pants, was going to do the healing for me. It's how i got into the messy relationships to begin with.
I know from loneliness. It's my constant companion.

Yep, that's the one. Amazon sells it along with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance as a combo deal.

I love that BB King song How Blue Can You Get? (it was also sampled in Primitive Radio Gods standing outside a broken phonebooth)

"I've been downhearted baby, ever since the day we met, ever since the day we met."

Here for ya! (I couldn't let myself posting real nuns' pictures. It would be wrong to use their pix in a joke since they devoted their lives to their faith. )
