WHEN WE ASKED THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SINGLE IF YOU ENJOY IT, YOUR RESPONSES WERE BRILLIANT!
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITES.
“After being married for almost 25 years I have now been single for almost 10 and loving it. I almost lost myself in a dead end marriage – Mrs X; mother of X, wife of X and couldn’t find me! Now taking care of me, losing weight and exercising, back to school to get my Masters and ENJOYING life. LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE.”
— Jacqueline Lovell-Santos
“I just left a 5-year relationship that I thought would evolve into a marriage. He couldn’t commit even after living together all that time. So I rented a U-Haul and moved. I am a little sad at times as its only been 3.5 months but as time goes on I am positive I will adapt.” —Lonna Sue Sanders
“Nope. I was madly in love with my hubby of 20 years and devastated when he cheated and left me. That was 2 1/2 years ago and I’m still alone AND lonely.”–Cathy Pedego
“After a 30 year marriage I walked away after I couldn’t take the emotional abuse anymore. I have lived on my own for the past 4.5 years and I am just starting to feel lonely. I will never live with anyone again but sometimes I dream about waking up with a loved one and sharing life. I’m just too scared to do it. I have lost too much.” —Kelley Russo
“Most of the time I’m okay. Just ended a relationship that lasted 1.5 years. It was a toxic situation. I know I made the right decision. It shows growth on my part. I do get lonely and I hate the feeling that nobody is here for me.” —Shawn Harper
