I stopped looking after the last beating I took......permanently......
I am now just on here for the forums. Nothing more, nothing less.
I'm not at that point yet, but I can certainly imagine the frustration. The way I see it is this: I know the type of person I am and what I want out of life, out of a relationship partner. There have to be other men who are looking for the same thing as me and I'm pretty hopeful I will find that person. But what a path it's going to be to get there!
Merry Christmas to you too, Ro. :-)
