I Think I'm In Trouble...

You know what really sucks about dating?
That moment when you first realize how much you actually care about someone. When you realize that you need them. It's like losing a sense of independence. It's remembering that only a couple of months ago, you never had to rely on anyone but yourself. It's like having to use crutches when you used to be able to stand up on your own. And it's really fucking scary. Because if you lose those crutches, you have to learn to walk on your own all over again.

I remember that feeling well... And the feeling when you lose the crutch. Makes you feel like giving up altogether just so you don't have have those feelings again. But then the one person that you truly connect with comes along, and it makes all your past experiences worth it. Because you had to go thru those to get to the point in your life where you are ready to really love that special person. I fell in love for the last time in Sept. '10, right after I turned 41. Now we are married and I am SO happy for the experiences I've had... Because they made me appreciate my husband that much more.
