In a sense I have. I have terrible luck with men and basically feel like I couldn't pick a good one if my life depended on it.I broke things off with my ex fiance a year ago in August, so I have been 100% single for 17 months. I have been happier in this past 17 months than I can ever remember, focusing on my son, work, enjoying going places with my son and just working on me. A few months ago I was talking to a guy for a few weeks, we met up at Starbucks once, but I chose not to pursue that because he wanted to just be fwb and I am no longer willing to accept that type of "relationship".
I've been sex free for almost two years. I won't even sleep with my next SO unless we are serious. I won't allow myself to get hurt again. And, I'm not one to have sex so easily. I was with the wrong man for many, many years.
i'm abstinate right now by choice, yes.. I'm single, have been since I was pregnant with our second dd. She's now 2, and until recently I haven't had any desire to date. Even if I dated now, I really am not looking for sex until the relationship gets serious... this isn't for religious reasons, but more because I'm a mother of two girls... I have an example to set.
