I question myself all the time. Now that my children are getting older (my youngest is 16 now), I feel like I should develop more friendships and be open to the possibility of another relationship. However, I like my autonomy and the freedom that I have. I have not dated at all for about 10 years. I had a special relationship when I was first divorced, and he was wonderful to me and my kids, but we were at diffent points in life and it didn't work out. My kids liked him, and when we stopped seeing each other, I felt it was another loss to my kids. I think I would like to just take it slow, make a friend, go once in awhile, and let it go where it will. In time, I think maybe there would be more with the right person. If that came to pass, I would rather get a new "space" to live in that would be for the two of us, not my space.
