We all know that the mating game can be very frustrating, and as time moves on those feelings can become more intense.

My own experiences with dating since divorcing have been less than ideal; a disproportionate amount of males only seem to want sex and/or a friends-with-benefits arrangement.

This doesn't just happen with jerks either; even men I know of who are decent human beings, i.e., are respected, are good fathers, would give the shirt off their back to anyone, etc..like this as well.

I have since decided that I'd rather throw myself into being a good mother and a good artist (I am a serious painter outside of my day job).

Ever since I have decided this, I have felt a peace that I never knew was possible.

You may make yourself believe that though life alone may not be what you want, you will accept it and find a way to deal with and mask the pain.

Unfortunately, too often that decision leads to unhealthy choices like self-medication with drugs or alcohol, which will only make you feel worse in the end and may damage your health and, at worst, end your life.Staying in denial about what you need to be happy, or even to be content, won’t help.Getting past your reluctance to reach out is something that you have to do for yourself, if not completely on your own.The need for companionship is very human, very normal, and very necessary.It gives us emotional balance and lets us enjoy life.Traditionally for hippie backpackers or lonely hearts, more of us are finding reasons to pluck up the courage and adventure alone.
