btw, I just told my dog to stfu! My Marlon Brando can be insistant. I can't tell yet if he needs to go outside or if he just needs me to rescue a bone from Dagmar.

I don't pretend to think that this must be similar to children but on a minor scale it must be?

Single- toilet paper actually gets replaced instead of a new roll on the counter and an empty one on the roll.

LTR- back scratches whenever I want them!

Married.

Take my wife. Please. I get no respect, let me tell you. My wife wants to have sex in the backseat of the car and she wants me to drive! No respect, no respect. I haven't spoken to my wife in years. I didn't want to interrupt her. I've got good lookin' kids, I tell ya. Good thing my wife cheats on me. loosens tie

I didn't like being single very much.

I dealt, and there were upsides in terms of what I could control - all the food in my apartment was stuff I wanted to eat, the toilet paper was always set in its holder the right ways, etc... but man, lonely sucks.

I say that knowing what you're getting at Appy. I think people should be able to be by themselves. If that facet of humanity were scored on a 1 to 10, where 1 is "Can't be alone" to 10 being "Would make the guy who cut his arm off in that movie with James Franco seem needy" - I'd have to admit I'm probably a 6 at most.

I wasn't lonely when I was alone, I enjoy my own company. Being alone helped me find out who I was and who I wasn't and what I wanted most in life. It helped me find a life mate, I think.

Single here and I don't like ice cubes.

Pretty much thrown in the towel with actively dating (read: online dating). OkC is pretty much a dating casino with the worst odds on the planet.

Also, I'm fairly certain that nobody really wants to put up with me for an extended period of time. Then there's my fickleness and ever-shifting focus of attention. Last but not least, this goddamn town is full of Red Sox fans.

I think both have their benefits.
My mother is currently in the middle of a divorce after being with my step-father for 30 years. She's back in the dating game and meeting lots of new people.
Earlier this week she was on a lunch date and my sister, who thought it had ended, called her for an update. Here's how it went:

Sister: Hey ma. How was the date?

Mom: We're still on our date

Sister: oh okay. Well call me later. Oh, mom...mom...cough once if he's nice, cough twice if he's "eh".

Mom: Fiona, you're on speaker.

I've been single now for a few years, and for the first time in, oh, since high school? I love it! I can't/won't have a family so other than some odd jobs I could use help with, duracell can accomplish anything else I need.

Sorry.

Don't get me wrong though. I love the brothers. I just tend to pick the wrong ones. Better off on my own with good friends.

Loved being single and I was not even close to lonely. I lived in a very urban area with lots of friends, so alone time was hard to come by. I am now married and live on a small farm where the nearest person beside my family is at least a half mile away and the only thing that stayed consistent is alone time is still hard to come by.

Good morning bored people!

I don't think I have ever been officially single since I was 14. Thinking about it, I lack experience doing things on my own. Like, oh, buying a car. I have never done that by myself. However, I have no doubt it the situation arose, I could handle anything that came my way. Just haven't had to.

I have also never been to a movie by myself or a restaurant.

ETA: HA! Neady!!!

Ya know ... there are days I miss being single but it really has nothing to do with how he is as a person and what not.

It has to do with space. I have three bathrooms in my house, THREE. Why does he feel the need to use the one that I am using?

I have this conversation with him on a daily basis, I have even moved to another bathroom and he slowly follows me there. I think he is doing it to vex me, which I find mildly amusing but mostly annoying.

And the stuff he does in the bathroom isn't even that gross, its just how he does it. When he brushes his teeth, he spreads his legs into a V and leans over the sink with his butt sticking out. I am constantly tripping over his feet getting to the things I need on the counter, and running into his rump when I am trying to get around him. REALLY! Do you HAVE to brush your teeth like that?! You have a choice, and clearly this one is getting in my way!

Now that I am typing this, it is very clear that I am the one with the issues.

But he has dishwasher feng shui issues, he hates how I load the dishwasher, so I guess we are even.

There are just some things one should not google, but I digress.

Thank you, (mini bow).

I have come to conclusion that fights are ok, as long as they don't get personal. Fighting about stuff ok... telling something 'I wish you would just go soak your head and die' while fighting about the stuff not ok.

I have very rigid kitchen rules. Nothing on the counters. And every item in the refrigerator has an assigned shelf.

But that's my only control issue.

LMAO, Squid! YAY!

Here is how I see it. As long as I do it incorrectly, I won't ever have to do it.

True story, I was having a conversation with my Aunt about this very same subject. And she tells me this story about when she was first married to my Uncle.

He asks her to iron his shirt, walks out of the room and runs to the garage to fiddle with manly stuff. They are newlyweds and did not live together prior to marriage (in the 60s).

She gets the ironing board out, puts his shirt on it, turns on iron, lays iron on shirt and sits staring at it, smoking a ciggy and having a cup of coffee.

He comes back to find his shirt hanging up with a nice triangle stain on the back of the shirt.

He just gives her this look and she gets all doe-eyed and says "oh, that's not right?".

He never asked her to iron again.

There are just some things one should not google, but I digress.

I know some are my crazy, some are hers.

Honestly, all of these things matter so much less as long as all the other things in your marriage are good.

If you trust each other, you make sure you stay on the same page and both want the same things, you work at some kind of real intimacy, and you respect each other - the rest is just today's deal, good or bad that you'll face head on together.

I didn't mean to be that cheesy. I've never heard that song. I started to listen to it, but didn't have my headphones on, and my whole office just heard the first few bars. happy.gif

Four legs of the table: Trust, Same Page of Life, Respect, Intimacy

Squid's formula for marital bliss. If that's cheesy, then so be it.

One leg can wobble for a while and the table stands. You get two wobbly, and dinner's in your lap.

I love being with someone.

I loved it when we had an open relationship.

I love it now that we're exclusive.


Each phase had its time. I think I'd hate being single now. I know I'd hate having an open relationship.

Does anybody else have a significant other (or hell, they may do it themselves) who collects little bits of paper? OH MY GAAAAAAAWD it drives me crazy. Anytime he needs to remember something he writes it on a scrap of paper and jams it in his pocket. He collects these and ATM receipts like the world will end if he throws them away. Then he empties his pockets on the top of our dresser. There are giant mountains of stupid crumpled paper bits all over the place, all the time. Heaven forbid I should throw any of it away, either.
