Second Life is full of people, yet can often feel like the loneliest place on earth. Standing in a club full of people or a shopping event that has been hammering to get in, but you are all alone. It can truly feel like a struggle at times. For me, I get the loneliest in the evenings when things have settled down and people are hanging out with their significant others. I have amazing friends that invite to come hang out, but there I am feeling like the fifth wheel. Then there are other times that I listen to my friends talk about their relationships and the boundaries they have established with their partners. That’s when I start thinking I’m better off single. I’ve been single for so long, I’m not sure I can fall in line with the restrictions that often come with a relationship. Then again, I suppose the right person just makes you more open to that.
I know I wrote about dating Derrek in the past, but we just didn’t work out as far as a relationship goes. Nothing bad happened, it just wasn’t us. It changed the dynamic of our friendship too much. So, yes, I really am single again….not that I ever wasn’t really. We dipped our toes in that pool and decided not to get in the water. Now, I’m just not sure if I even want to get in the water. *sighs* So goes life.
