so this is how that feels...

Last night, MM and I went to meet some of his old friends from high school for drinks and dinner. One of them was visiting from out of state, so it seemed like too nice of an opportunity to pass up. Plus, I don't often pass up the chances at a good mojito...

Anyhow, we managed to get to where we needed to, and I met the friends. 2 of them were single women. One of them very newly single. And that's when it kind of dawned on me. For once, (and it hasn't happened in a long, long time), I was the happily taken woman of the group. Secure in my relationship, and not in any way, shape or form looking for love. They had some discussion of what it's like to be newly single, some giddy talk of men, (or lack of), and such.
And I had nothing to contribute!
MM and I have been together for a little over two years, now. And there I sat, acting like the old, stuffy happily married woman. (though we're not married)
and you know? I was, and am perfectly happy in that role. Didn't bother me in the slightest.
I know, and remember how hard it is to find someone in this day and age
and it makes me value MM all the more :)

I have never in 40 years wished to be "single". Problems? yes. But what makes a good relationship is straightening out the problems. That is what makes it work. If it isn't worth working on, let it go.
I'm glad you two found each other. You are a wise woman to appreciate what you have found.
