I give up

I think I should just acknowledge that I stink at relationships and just accept that truth. There comes a point when it's not worth trying any more -- the rewards don't equal the pain. I acknowledge I am no good at playing golf, and so I don't put myself through that. After junior high, I wasn't tall enough to play basketball, so I put it behind me. For me, relationships simply don't do any better than those types of sports. And the cost is much, much higher.

So I officially submit my resignation from the dating world. I'm better off giving my attention to the things I can do without feeling like I'm in some dang made-for-TV movie.

That's it.

I understand what you mean. I lack that talent, also. It's some sort of genetic trait that skipped me. Makes me crazy sometimes, particularly when I see people whom I couldn't imagine ever getting married, tying the knot, and here I sit. But ... it's not a bad life I have. I got friends, I got hobbies, I got God. Things could be worse. I try to remember to count my blessings as I can. I feel for you, Trixie. I really do.

!!! What this means, then, is that you will probably meet somebody, a good somebody, before long. A parable: Spend all day looking for a quarter on the sidewalk. You won't find one. Forget about it, and in the distance will be a glimmer that upon closer inspection will turn out to be a quarter.

At times I feel the same exact way. One of my friends calls herself UGLY...and then a few months later - she was married and is very happy. But, she gave up...then wham! Anyway, I'm happy for people that can find that happiness...but, it seems to always seem different for me. Maybe one day I will be happy with a companion, too...but I stopped waiting...
