A conversation between me and a "also divorced" friend via Facebook chat:
Her: "Hey you. How's life?"
Me: "Pretty good. Staying busy. I see you are back with the boyfriend. How's that going?"
Her: "Couldn't be happier! Things are great and he's actually reciprocating!"
Me: "That's awesome! You deserve it! Keep me posted."
Her: "What about you and the love life?"
Me: "Just started dating [The Medic]. So far, so good. Still too soon to tell though."
Her: "That's awesome! I'm sure it will work out!"
Me: "Yeah. I hope so. But I'm so horrible at dating."
Her: "Everyone is horrible at dating. That's because dating EFFING SUCKS! WE EFFING HATE IT!" ***
***(She didn't say "effing"...I edited...something that she rarely, if ever, does!)
Me: "Well said. Very well said."
And there you have it. Apparently I'm not the only one exhausted with this process of trying people on for size. And why should I be????
Sometimes it really does feel like an all capital letters, cuss worthy kind of journey.
It's nice to know I'm not alone.
