A single woman, for the first time in a long time . . .

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I have split from the boyfriend of over three years. . . Mind you we are 20 years old. He has decided that he is not the person that he wants to be, and that he has to find himself. Which is fine with me. At least he is being honest and not finding someone else, or whoever he thinks he needs to be behind my back.

It really is a long story how it all happened, so I wont go into detail, but I have moved back home with mom, and let him have the apartment, and I think I am going to be okay!

I think as a parting gift I am going to buy myself a nice new car. I may walk into the car dealership and tell them I want sporty, 5-speed, leather. . . . sell me something. Sort of a mid-life crisis type deal. lol

I dont want to get back into a serious realtionship for a while. I want to play the field and see what life has to offer me! Many a good things to come my way!

On the topic of moving back in with mom. . . Dinah is scared! She is hiding in my room with her box, food, water and blanket. She saw Angel (moms cat) breifly while we were holding them, and they hissed at each other. . .So she is hiding in my bed, under the blanket. Angel came in the room and hopped up on the bed, realized Dinah was poking her head out of the covers, and freaked out and ran. They are both such fraidy cats that I dont think we are going to have to worry about agression. . .

Will keep you updated on kitty relations!

Congrats on being single!! Best time of my life, I've been single for 3 years now and don't really see me trying to change that anytime soon.

Hope Angel and Dinah get over their fraidy-cat-ness

Congrats on becoming single again

You're at a time in your life where either you get married young or you go out and play the field. I personally like the separate option for any youngster

I cant tell you how happy I am right now.

After everything we have been through the past 3 years I can honestly say....welcome home!! Your sister and I have missed you terribly.

As for the car, you have to get your priorities in order before you start thinking about the car thing. But if you let me help you you will be able to do that within the year.

LOVE YOU!!!!

Kitties are okay thus far. They are so afraid of each other that i am not worried about them attacking each other. . .Dinah has not quite gotten comfortable. She hides in the blanket on my bed while I am at work, but she comes out when I am there.

I am doing well also. Looking forward to the car and meeting new people.

I REALLY want a Nissan 350z. But I am going to see if i can swing it! Vibes for a 350Z please!!!!!!

WOW! I'm sorry to hear about this but you know what? You may be better off!
If you ever need to talk, I'm just a phone call or car drive away!

I've been single all my life! Being an only child you kind on learn to be independent pretty fast. One thing has happened after another where I just never could get into one, not that there are prime choices around here. I've gotten numbers and perverts all the same. No thanks.

I think I may always be single. I would love to settle down one day, but that will all depend on if someone finds me and vice versa.

Get the car if you can affod it! That is a nice car! Do something for yourself and enjoy it. Good Luck! There are plenty of us out there so we are always a PM away.

Dinah is finally coming out of the bedroom. She was just nudging my arm as I am typing this for me to pet her. I tried to finish but she bit me because I wasnt paying attention to her!!! As for Angel I have not seen her since I got home!

As for the car...Rachel has only been back home for 4 days. She needs to realize that she needs to get her affairs in order before she can make any major purchases like that. Not to mention that I am not financially able to help her out right now either. (Thanks to the forever raising prices of homeowners insurance here in FL)

My wish for her is that she just stop looking. One day, a tall, dark and handsome man will come along and sweep her off her feet. Preferably older than she is because these guys her age are just little boys and she is far more mature for her age than they are.

Trust me, even the older one's aren't as mature as they should be
post #19 of 26
Yeah I agree but it would be better than what she had
post #20 of 26
Glad to see you are taking this so well and putting a positive mood forth. Getting a car would be a great way to do something for yourself!! Hope the kitties start getting along soon as well, and I'm also glad to see how supportive your mom is

I had one show up when I wasn't looking He's not much older than me (just over a year older), but both of our maturities are way beyond our ages.

It just took me like 5 minutes to type that because Monte thinks its time to learn how to type with his meowmy.

You sound like my mom, right down to the "tall dark and handsome" line! But, I agree completely! You're 20! This is the time to have fun and experience life, meet new people, expand your friends, have a torrid affair (oops, sorry mom )

Seriously, just have fun, focus on you and do what YOU want to do. Have fun with friends, spend time by yourself (that is important too), play with the cats...whatever you want to do, you can.

Honestly, it's true. My "Tall, dark and handsome man" turned out to be my best friend that I had known for years. We just had to get on the same page at the same time, and we got married 2 year ago and I couldn't imagine life without him. It's strange the way life works out.

You're still young, and have your whole life ahead of you. Have fun while you have the chance! And treat yourself to that car - I would!

I hope the kitties become friends soon!

Rachel's sister came out of her room tonight and told me Dinah was throwing up. Then I hear her ask the cat "what did you eat???" I went in there and the cat threw up all over one of her shirts. She actually ate a string from my daughters bathingsuit and threw it up along with her food....

ick!!!

There is a very long story behind Rachel and her now ex. (I like the sound of that, sorry Rachel) I am hoping this time that she has truly seen him for what he really is. Her problem is she will not sever the ties and he pleads with her to come back and she falls for it. All is good for a while, but then he starts the same thing over again. My opinion, he is verbal and mentally abusive to her (her friends say it as well) but she wont see it.

Don't worry mom! I will keep her straight!
She's a good girl and I think she see's what's going on.
