The opposite sex

Does anyone else ever have days where they are not comfortable in their own skin?

Most days I am happy, satisfied and did I mention happy? Most days I don't feel the need/desire to have to have someone in my life.

Then there are days like today when I really want to have someone in my life.

Today, I feel lonely....

I miss physical contact, conversation and closeness that is shared with someone special.

One of the things I miss the most about being married is how comfortable you feel with the other person.

My cat only converses so much with me, then walks away to go sun himself.

There is something about sharing yourself with someone that really brings fullfilment and satisfaction that goes beyong the actual physical sense (not that physical is bad by all means), and right now I just miss all of it.

Geez, I sound corny! or desperate....and totally lonely!!!!

You don't sound corny or desperate. You sound human.

He's out there somewhere....

Kati said...

Aww, Bardouble, sorry to hear that you're feeling lonely. Hope you find some great company, soon. ((((HUGS)))) and a cuppa (tea, coffee, hot cocoa, spiked cider, your pick).

Wizened Wizard said...

Corny is good. Totally lonely is all of us now and then. Desperate is totally lonely extended over time. And then there's the old saw, "Be careful what you wish for."

Too bad you live so far from where my son lives...

By the way, I really like your new photo.

Susan - Human is good, and he is out there, just somedays I want it NOW!!! lol

Kati - Thanks for the hugs! Those are always welcome! And I will take a glass of wine with that!

Wizened - "By the way, I really like your new photo"

Thanks, a friend picked it out.

You're not alone. I've been single for a year (after a 9 yr. relationship), and I feel that way sometimes... Maybe that's why I do so much beadwork - to take my mind off of being lonely...

bardouble29 said...

LB - I have hobbies to, scrap book, read and blog. Thanks for sympathizing with me.

Anne said...

Sometimes I miss having someone, but then I remember how much negativity was in my last relationship, and being alone seems great compared to that.

bardouble29 said...

Anne - I completely understand what you are saying, but companionship is an essiential and necessary part of what us girls need. And I get damn lonely sometimes! LOL

Rhea said...

I know what you mean!

bardouble29 said...

Rhea - Thanks for stopping by!

You don't sound corny you sound like someone who is ready for love. I hope it comes along for you very soon.

bardouble29 said...

whimsical - Thanks....hope so soon.

Jay said...

I'm pretty comfortable being single too. But, I also agree that sometimes it would be nice to have a person of the opposite sex to just "be" with.

bardouble29 said...

Jay - well said, I don't need someone, but sometimes I want some one.

Dorky Dad said...

Chin-up buckeroo. We all have moments like that.

bardouble29 said...

dorky dad - my chin is up, just a moment of weakness for the opposite sex....LOL

captain corky said...

You definitely do not sound corny or desperate. As always I appreciate your honesty. It will come again.

I was single for two years once and locked myself away in a dreadful green room... But that's a story for another time.

Craig D said...

...rhymes with "corny"..?

RockDog said...

LOL @ craig d! That's funny...

We all go through that...it will all work out in the end. :D

Meander said...

i think it is very normal to feel these feelings. probably when you least expect it, you will meet someone.

Em said...

You do not sound desperate, you sound lonely. A very normal, human emotion. And not an emotion we are very well equipped to deal with. It leaves us fretting and feeling sad and not knowing exactly where to turn to make that connection. And most of us reading this are just too far away to be an actual, physical friend. But we still care about you. And hope you have better days very soon.

You do not sound lonely or desperate by any means. Its human contact that everyone needs - and I know where you are coming from. Keep you heart strong - hang on someday it will all be worth it!
