May 29th - So, erm...hi?

Been away a while, huh?
So, a couple of weeks after the last post I had to leave my job to look after my son. Shortly after that, Richard shifted significantly from "friend" to "foe" and a nice young man stepped in to help me get over him. That last about 6 weeks, and of the 6 relationships I've had since him, he's been the longest.
The most recent was probably the one that bothered me the most; he was perfect in pretty much every way; also working on losing weigh, everything in common, wants kids, etc. We had a fantastic first date. And the next morning he messaged me telling me he couldn't cope with the age gap between up (19 years, as opposed to the 30 years between me and Richard). Personally I think that's retarded; I'm not Benjamin bloody Button, I didn't get any younger since he chatted me up, you know?
Anyways. I'm still in therapy and doing better in myself. I'm a little more cynical about love now and in no rush to get back into a relationship. I'm still dating, but slowly, casually. I have "Buddies" (ahem) and friends now, and my finances are sorted, so a man in my life hasn't been such a huge priority.
All in all, I'm doing better.
