So I can remember 8 different guys that I dated and only 2 ended up in relationship which both ended. I know pathetic! I saw the good, bad, complicated and the ugly and think I'm done with the whole dating situation, for this year anyway! So how was your love life this year, good, bad, ugly? Did you meet someone new that you're still with now or perhaps ended a relationship or maybe you were like me, one too many bad dates that lead to nowhere! Share your experience :)

I didn't really have any dates exactly, but two random meetings with two different guys that developed into relationships rather quickly, lol. I met and got together with my ex last February, and he broke up with me in September. It was really rough, I was completely heartbroken and just in a really bad place mentally for a while. Only very recently have I been able to come to terms with being OKAY without him in my life that way. We can still kind of be friends now after a long time of me not being able to handle that transition, especially with him having a new girl so soon after dumping me. And I can still see his kids, who I absolutely adore, and be in their lives and love on them. He told me his older kids were PISSED when we broke up and I wasn't around anymore and they weren't able to see me, and I guess were really rude to his new girl for a while at first. But they love me and I'd do anything for them, so I'm unbelievably relieved that I'll still be able to be in their lives.
Then in October I met the guy I'm dating now, also randomly, but we didn't actually really talk until a couple weeks ago, and decided a couple interactions later that we wanted to try dating. We've only been seeing each other for like two weeks, but it's going really well so far and just seems to be an all around better situation than with my ex. More in common, know a lot of the same people, have several mutual friends who support us being together [rather than every female friend my ex had absolutely hating me for no other reason than for 'snagging' their friend/crush/obsession, haha], etc. We relate better on an emotional level and have kind of both come out of similar heartbreak type situations in the last 6 months.
But it's really unusual for me, having two relationships so close together, let alone two in one year. Granted, I've only had 3 boyfriends, but I'm still so used to always being the single girl while most of my friends date and have had several relationships over the years we've been friends. I didn't date anyone for three years after breaking up with my first boyfriend, lol, so I feel strange all of a sudden being apparently thought of as 'desirable' in a relationship sense by multiple men in such a short time period lately. I'm okay with where I'm at right now though, the heartache is mostly faded away, and I'm starting to feel comfortable in my own skin again. AND comfortable with myself with another person, I don't feel as much anxiety and emotional turbulence. I feel comfortable being totally myself with this guy because I can tell he really respects me and is interested in me as a person, in who I am.0
