Recently I was asked if I preferred the "company of women". What sort of question is that? Do I have great female friends? YES!
Do I spend time with my running Wooo Hooo girlfriends? YES!
Do I have a female friend who is "more than just a friend"?
Normally I don't air my very personal issues on my blog, but this is for the record.
And no, I am NOT against gay, lesbian, homosexual relationships. Some of my best friends are and were, (they have passed away) in very happy, loving openly gay relationships. I truly had and still have a blast with them.
So, no, I am and always have been happily heterosexual.
Truth be told, I have been on my own, single, old maid, spinster whatever the term you prefer for eight years now. Maybe it is a growing, learning who I am, what I will put up with, what I won't put up with, learning about myself, spiritually and otherwise journey I am on.
The journey has been long and often arduous, but I have battled major health issues, surgery and and now have a clean slate, all that while I had the rug pulled out from under me when I least expected it. All I can say is I've come out of it a better (not bitter, well I was for awhile, but that's a waste of good energy) person.
I can truthfully say I am happy with my life and absolutely embrace every new experience that comes my way, the good, the bad and the ugly.
For me, my wonderful friends have lived through it all with me, knowing when to offer advice, knowing when to let me stumble, fall and get up again on my own, but always being there for me when I most need them. Thank YOU!!!
When the time comes that I do find Mr. Wonderful, I'll be ready I suppose, everyone says it will happen when you least expect it.
So shove over P.O.M. there are two of us in the singles boat!!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
