The need some feel to have another in their lives to feel complete. No one completes you but you!


Happy Spring!!!

Hmmm. Not sure if I'm feelin you on this one or not.

On the one hand, I've known people who "always had to have a boyfriend" - moved from one to the next and never knew what it was like to just be on their own, making their own way in life and developing an independent personality, opinions, and such. That I could never relate to.

On the other hand, after so many years with my husband, even through difficult times, we have such a strong connection - nothing compares. Could I survive, literally, without him? Yes. But I hate to think of that - he, my mom, and my sisters are my primary relationships and I never want to be without any of them. I would go to great lengths to salvage, maintain, enrich those relationships - above and beyond what I'd do in any other situation.

Toos I have noticed this so much out here with women--they need a man to make them complete and barely have a relationshop/marriage end whether death/divorce and are on the hunt-(2 sil's barely waited for the body to chill).

Ok, thanks for the clarification, Lacey - that, I totally hear you and agree. It's both sad and . Can't relate to that attitude at all but have known people like that, also. Most actually acknowledge that's how they are!

A very great peeve lacey.......I too have known people like this. Women or men who need a partner and also people who just need to make themselves feel good whether it be clinging to a person, shopping, attention, drugs whatever.
I may be off track and we may be talking 2 different issues but I"m seeing them intertwined.

I feel bad for those people who cannot be alone. Then again I don't do well with clingy people. Get a life BUT...on the flip side:

Knowing how good my relationship with my DH is know I would not want to be without him so I would do everything to keep what we have. It's rare.
My DH is my best friend in the world. He is my partner in every sense of the word. We do everything together and we are together 24/7/365. I would not want to live my life without him. I know someday it will happen to one of us and it's going to tear me apart. But I will not replace him because no one could live up. I would rather be alone in that sitiuation....I'm hoping we die together...when we are very old

Chuckling here-hope I didn't confuse you all!

I just meant you shouldn't count on anyone to "complete" you but yourself -that makes a better partner in life.
