. It was mutual, and quite friendly on both of our ends, we simply realized we were never going to be great fits for each other. So, for the moment, I'm single, but I also really need to take some time to understand what I really want in a mate before I try to take another. The past few weeks have been full of panic attacks and other forms of mental meltdowns, which have gotten better, but are still not quite right.
My interest right now is in meeting new friends, and trying to understand what I really want in life. I love my friends, I love talking with them and hanging out, but what hurts me, and what I really can't deal with at the moment, is people who want me to solve all their problems for them. I had to do that in my last relationship, and it made me miserable, because I never got anything back. I need friends who can treat me as an equal, not someone who can make their life better, not someone who's going to be a sugar daddy, but just friends who accept me for the strange, goofy person I am, and expect nothing more of me. In return, I'll give my friendship back, in full force.
