Maybe my age is showing, but I don't understand why it's so hard to find someone who really want a monogamous relationship which involves honesty, fidelity and longevity. In today's society everything is disposable, including someone's heart; and television doesn't help matters any by parading scantily clad teenage girls in front of middle-aged men or buffed out steroid driven men in front of love-starved women and the rest of us are suppose to compete with that.
It's any wonder why anyone would want to work hard at a relationship because if we're not happy with what we currently have, we tend to move on to something else ... however, what ends up happening is what we most fear .... being alone and unloved! How sad.
I've been alone for a long while now because I refuse to be someone else's garbage, to be thrown away after my use has been depleted or a new toy comes on the market. I choose to wait for that special someone who will think of me as that unique special treasure they wish to keep for the rest of their lives. I hope to find that for myself and for all of you as well.
