do u ever miss being in love?Page 11 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
Yes, I do miss that "being in love" feeling. I am beginning to forget what it is like to "be in love" and I hope it's not going to last forever because I have so much more love to give to someone wonderful.

I find it strange that there is no object of my desire in my life right now. No one that I wish to get to know better with hopes that it could turn into more.

Sometimes I think that I'm getting so comfortable being alone that maybe it comes across as not wanting to be in a relationship or that I am so independant that I don't need anyone (which is silly). Then I look at two of my closest friends and realize that one found love at age 50 and the other at age 60 so there is still time for me to find love.

It's nice to see that many of the posters in this old thread from 2005 are no longer on POF (hopefully they have found love and not just changed their POF handle LOL).

Guess I'm having one of those days.

^^^ two weeks!!!! Try two years!!! Hmmm, maybe that's what I'm missing?

Yes, there is always the love of family and friends around. Of course it's great. I still miss the "in love" part.

I feel kind of numb now. I do miss the one I love, so much. No doubt about that. But I've gotten used to this state of being not in love. Being in love has become such a distant memory. Kind of like trying to remember how it felt when you were in a lot of pain. It's easy to remember that it generally sucked and how much it bothered you, but to actually remember it so well that you can imagine it and make yourself feel it again in your mind, much harder. I remember being so happy and filled up with emotion when in love. But I feel okay now. That amazing infatuation period actually feels quite unstable to me anyway. I feel more level-headed now.

Last relationship I had was 4 years ago. When anyone ever asks if I miss her I seem to always say the same thing. "I miss the way I felt then."

Yes, I do miss to love and being loved ... one to one ... and being in love

But do I let it overshadow my life? Nope.

I saw the movie "Eat Pray Love" yesterday and a comment made by Julia Robert's character, "I want to learn to love again" hit home!
I want to learn to love a partner again and feel that love from him. There can be nothing to compare.
We love our families and friends and are loved in return, but learning to love a stranger who comes into your life later on, as a full partner and lover, is a different thing all together. Through all our disappointments, break-ups and betrayals in life, that outer shell around our hearts sometimes becomes a little thicker and harder. It protects us and allowing it to crack leaves us vulnerable....and that the hard thing to allow yourself to be....vulnerable.

I miss loving someone other than my son and family. I enjoy doing little things for my partner. Coffee in AM....fresh veggies from my garden...the little acts of partner kindness to each other.

As the poster above said, will we lay our hearts out there again.........

More that anything in the world...the feeling of Love is bliss.
I just wish it wasn't so hard to find that feeling that warms your heart to no extent.

I totally agree. That is a feeling that I long to feel again . There is no better feeling than that of being in love..besides the feeling of being loved by another.
