They are not better people. Or, do you prefer acquaintances that challenge your beliefs and make you think? Some have gone the Craigslist route, using the popular non-commercial community bulletin board as a way to find new friends. The women I met on the site were all busy with full lives and careers. Every time we go out together, we correct one wrong assumption after another, repeatedly telling people: We're just friends. Found it hard to have real friends who were not asking for flavours Or needed constant contact. They want to fix things.
I have really been in a negative headspace around this very issue. But then there was also a beautiful vulnerability and honest conversations and candid questions that we all worked together to find answers to. You are going to jeopardize youself and your labour in exchange of little return. For all you know, they might be in the same situation as you. Often, breaking the ice once can lay the groundwork for a real relationship to develop over time.

But, let me tell you, it has been a fight all the way! I am not athletic beyond working out and am not usually able to carry on a conversation about sports. A man can go to a local sports bar, find another guy cheering for the same team, and the next thing you know he's sitting next to the other guy, having a drink and getting invited to a barbecue. Their impatience toward drama is really doing you a favor.

This is when we start to zero in on our interests and begin finding paths for our adult lives. But usually the best thing to do is just focus on helping the other person somehow.

Rather than let you re-read a breakup email for the fourth time, they will steer you toward a solution. I overthink things all the time. But as the conversation continued I realized that this guy was actually pretty cool and I started opening up. Makes for a lonely life, especially since I have separated from my husband for 8 years now. So why not embrace it?
