|I think I LIKE being alone.|
As I get older, sex is just not nearly as important as it was when I was in my 20s - and if I do want it, I can take care of myself far better than when I'm with the man who IS in my life. And having a close friend that I can really open up to is becoming far more important to me than sex or even a romantic partner.
So even though I do have a man, I'm starting to think I might be happier alone. He's really an overgrown teenager anyway, and I find I'm losing patience with a lot of things he does (like comic book collection, roleplaying games, etc).
Many people, esp. in American culture (I'm American), may think this is very strange and possibly even mentally unhealthy, to be happy being alone. Yet I find solitude to be hugely peaceful.
