Relationships

I so don't get them...I pick the most inappropriate guys. I mostly pick non-committal types. Let's see... recently there was Texas (far away), then Air Force(far, far away) and now The Boy. The Boy is way too young. No matter what anyone says the age difference is just too big. He would be fun for a while but I'm sure it would just end badly (for me). Maybe it's because I really don't want to be in a relationship that I pick guys that won't last. I don't know...I think I want one. I would like to fall in love again...with someone who thinks I'm pretty amazing.

With that said, I tend not to date much if ever. I have done *a lot* of counseling through the years and most of my "life" is in good shape. This is the one area that I just can't seem to figure out. Feel free to leave your thoughts. Or not. It's just a little update on my life as a singleton.

You're probably right -- you really don't want to be in a relationship right now, but you're bored and The Boy is there and willing. I did that a lot in law school and I think I was just passing the time until I was really ready. When I was, I ended up meeting my husband within a matter of weeks. Until you're ready though, I just say enjoy it and don't overthink it. And when you think it's over, just end it.

Yep I'm with Averill here Kara. Don't over-intellualize it, just have fun in the moment. Our perceptions of relationship age gaps are a weird thing, mostly influenced by societal forces. My darling Dad was 23 years older than Mum & they were perfect for each other. And I'm sure it would have been fine if it were reversed. You have a fantastic take on life - I reckon you are a prize 'catch'!!

I think that I pick the most inappropriate guys because I don't want to be in a relationship right now too. I also pick guys who have no idea I exist, have a massive crush on them for ages then get fed up because they don't like me back because I have never actually properly spoken to them!

I like the blog, I was referred over by stillarockstar.

You are amazing, Kara. If I think that, I am sure that there is a nice gentleman out there for you who things the same thing.

I'm going to take a little break from even thinking about dating or relationships. But I appreciate all the thoughts...
