    I hate being single!

    Advertisements
    I don't mind being alone, I actually love alone time and having the bed to myself at night. The hardest part about being single for me is not having someone to talk to about things in my life. Specifically work things, being able to get done with a hard day of work and just venting to an SO about it all was seriously so therapeutic for me. My job is stressful and burn out comes easy. These are not things I can talk to friends about either, honestly, its nothing terribly interesting so I don't expect friends to want to listen to me vent. But, how do I learn to accept that I have no one to talk to about certain things. I guess I feel kind of pathetic sometimes for craving this so bad, but I do. Anyone have any kind of advice for just being content with not being able to vent sometimes or? Help me be a better single!

    I know where you're coming from because I'm not single but I can't imagine not having DH to come home too and vent to about my day. I think you're under estimating your friends, if they are really your friends they should be there for you to vent to occasionally

    Other options, maybe a blog?

    Totally in the same boat. I went from at least corresponding (whether IM, email, or skype) with my xDB just about every single day to 0 contact at all since the breakup (minus that random email he sent me). My close friends and family have been hugely supportive of me through this process and sometimes I will just call someone to vent. But I know it's not the same as what you're used to - same with me. Sorry I don't really have much advice, but know that you're not alone!!

    You can vent to me if you ever need to. I'm a very good listener.

    Thank you, yea my friends are open to listening to me. I just always think to myself "this is probably boring for them, I don't want to make them listen to me" I just think I think too much! haha And I've always had a guy around to listen, so I've never needed them for that. But, I do need to just start opening up more with them, otherwise my mind will explode, I fear

    to you too. I hate feeling like I need someone, but I don't think its possible to keep everything bottled up. I need to be more open with my friends I guess because they are supportive too.

    Venting/talking about work and life is what you have MSOS for! But seriously, I get it, it's so hard to go from always having someone to talk to, to not. Hang in there

    I don't know how long you've been single for, but for me it was just something I got used to. For the first couple weeks I struggled with it, but after a bit, I just got used to keeping things to myself. If there was something serious bothering me, then I'd vent to my best friends. Otherwise, I just ignored it.
