I wonder the EXACT same thing. Here’s my thought on it and I actually have written about it before and probably will again today: I am solid in who I am. I am comfortable and strong and happy with myself. I have created a wonderful life for myself. There is still something missing. No matter how hard I work on myself, I can’t give myself that one missing thing. So I date to try and find it. Because I want it. There are times I think dating just isn’t worth it and that there is NO ONE out there for me. I’m in that funk now. But, if I just give up, I fear I’m just going to give up completely. Meh.
