Great post! And I totally get it. I have been thinking about this very thing a lot lately as my 50th birthday is quickly approaching and I am for all intents and purposes, single. I was married briefly (2 years, then widowed) and lived with a man for 10 years. We’re still great friends and I like him much more now than I ever did when we were a “couple”. All that aside, when I pause for reflection and am really honest with myself, the times I’ve been most happy is when I am single. I’ve always liked living alone and prefer it. I think relationships are better when everyone has their own “treehouse” in which to retreat. Live close, visit often is my favorite mantra for relationships at this stage.
