Remember, if you’re still longing for your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend, you may want to take a longer break before reentering the dating world. Besides, if you’ve been left heartbroken or let down before, why would you want to put yourself in this kind of painful position again?
However, to be truly ready to go back into the dating scene, you have to be able and willing to open up and make yourself vulnerable again, as it’s the only way to truly build a connection with someone new.
Once careers are solidified or children are grown, many couples realize that they've grown apart or don't really have much in common any longer.
Communication becomes difficult or practically nonexistent. For some couples, their beliefs or value systems might have shifted.
Particularly as the art of seduction has changed somewhat.
So how do new singletons go about dating after a long break?
I loved having a little extra money for something fun, like a weekend away or, hey, new clothes., I scolded myself for wishing I was anyone besides me for a couple of minutes. At the same time, it’s not your “fault” you’re healthy. I appreciate all my friends, family and readers and I really don’t want to have pity parties, but my frustration gets the best of me sometimes.Why is it OK for me to resent people, but then I get upset when people do it to me? It’s not your fault you’re taking advantage of the benefits you have of not being me (or anyone else with prohibitive health issues). So, keep posting all your awesome vacation/workout/getaway pictures all over Facebook so I can live vicariously through you. This post originally appeared on Afterthoughts of a Reporter.When your world is spinning out of control and nothing seems to help the spinning go away, you do a lot of thinking when you’re stuck in bed, clutching the sheets, because up is down and you feel like you’re going to “fall down” into the sky.(If you’ve never had that kind of dizzy, you’re lucky, and I promise, it exists.) I’ve whined and complained about how people see me and treat me in several of my past blogs. I resent people for being to work full-time and bring home a regular-sized paycheck.
