I don't think one's life should be defined by someone else.
Very true SD_Chick. We are our own persons. However, we are also human beings which is naturally a social being. So it's only natural to feel lonely at times. But what makes you feel good in the end is what's important for your well being.
I haven't had a girlfriend now for a long time. At times I feel pretty lonely, not having someone I can sit and talk with, or cuddle up on the sofa and watch a movie with. But hey, this is the course that I chose, and when it comes down to it, I'm pretty happy.
Sometimes, having a mate isn't really what it's made up to be. It can be a pain, and it can be very hurtful. I remember when I was younger, I didn't understand why people had girlfriends. I thought to myself "They are only going to break up again, there never getting married so why not wait?" I suppose I thought that your only bringing pain to yourself every time you hook up with someone and breaking up with them a short time later. I never understood really.
And I remember my first girlfriend, Kathryn. Cute girl. Very sweet. But I remember in a little love note I had gotten, it said "I can't wait for all the fun times we will have this year." It sorta hit me, that she had no intention of being with me for longer then a year. I found that a waste of time and broke it off. If you are going to put a time limit on such matters, then what is the use?
And every time I get with a girl, it usually ends up with heartbreak on my side. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I suppose I "fall in love" too fast, too soon.
But oh well, some things aren't meant for some people.
