A friend of mine reminded me on the phone last night that I am a statistic, thats right a statistic. Like most marriages mine ended in divorce. He also reminded me that most people remarry within 2 to 5 years of getting a divorce. He is much more familiar with the percentages than I am, maybe because he has been single longer. Who knows?
I have been separated for over 5 years and divorced for 3. I doubt very seriously that I will remarry within the next 2 years. Would seem near impossible considering I have not really even started dating again yet. Did not seem fair to drag someone else I care about into the drama of my not so amicable divorce. (Dont even ask, it is the stuff that lifetime movies are made of.)
Things have settled down a lot in my life in the last year or so and maybe I will start looking for some one to join me soon on this wonderful journey I call life. Its just hard for me to imagine getting back into the dating game, seeing different people looking for God knows what. (Thats not me)
I also doubt that I will be in a hurry to remarry the first guy that comes along just for the sake of being married. (Thats not me either) I do hope to find some one some day, someone that I really like, really trust and can learn to really love. my soul mate, arma cara, my best friend.
Until then I do have lots of friends, lots of family and lots of co-workers to keep me company. When I do feel lonely (as I often do) I can go out into the world in search of a large crowd to be part of or I can talk all night to David on the computer or the phone and let him tell me I am a statistic.
