Not Dating

"most assuredly" is a phrase

"most assuredly" is a phrase that belongs only when talking about laws of physics and how great coffee is in the morning; it has no place in discussions around religion, weather, or dating.

(is this me talking?! i can't believe what's coming out of my keyboard.)

I agree with Hawkeye. To use

I agree with Hawkeye. To use the phrase 'most assuredly' when past blogs have been so very hither and thither? Makes me wonder what exactly is 'assured' at this point? In relationships I'd say pretty much nothing, other than neurosis.

Well you know, there are

Well you know, there are folks out there working really really hard to find a new dating paradigm.

hawkeye: look at you! with

hawkeye: look at you! with hope! that's lovely.

anonymous: that's what i've been trying to get at in my recent posts. my sense of hope that one of these relationships might last longer than a few years, might be "the one," etc. etc. is gone. i was holding onto it for a long time, but i've let it go. it does feel most assured that if i start something, it will end, and probably sooner rather than later.

it's funny, i don't really feel like i've been particularly hither and tither lately. interesting it comes off that way. over the years, yes, even the past year, but since december, no.

but yes, my neuroses will most assuredly be there too. which just might be contributing to my lack of hope.

aggie: i'll have to write more about this so that a certain short one can have some primary research.

I've sent the link to this

I've sent the link to this entry to a friend and my mom as I was unsuccessfully trying to describe very similar feelings and I wanted them to see that I'm not the only one who feels this way and that it isn't necessarily a negative (though it often feels like it for me) but just a new/different perspective.

Thanks for the words.
