The Single Me

All I can really say is the "Single Me" sucks.  I haven't been single since early December and I'm far from used to it.  I've been out a few times since Chris broke up with me and it all feels so weird.  I'm not used to starting from the beginning again and getting to know someone and flirting and playing hard to get and what not.  Its not fun at all.  I don't want to come across as to clingy or like I'm pushing someone away but I sincerely have no clue what I'm doing anymore!! Not to mention I have no clue how to feel about anything.  Right now my heart is covered in lead and surrounded by a fence guarded by raptors and the raptors are surrounded by a mote filled with sharks.  So yeah. . .its not really easy to get in there right now.  I feel almost numb.  I mean, I have feelings for people, I feel happy and what not. . .but its different.  I can't feel pain right now. . .I don't feel especially good, but I can feel okay.  You could murder my bestfriend and I'm not sure I would feel it.  I mean, this is what I asked for, never to feel pain again, but I'm a little concerned about this.  I'm not sure exactly what I'm feeling.  I know I feel strong for getting over him like I did.  I feel scared of letting someone in and letting them hurt me again.  I'm scared that I'm going to push people away due to my fear.  Maybe I started dating too fast but everyone was encouraging me so much to move on. . .maybe I took that a little too literally and started too fast.  Maybe I need to just stop and think for a little while and figure things out for myself.  I have no idea whats going on.  If you're reading this I'm sure you've noticed that even my thoughts are all over the place.  I wish I could see the future because then I wouldn't make mistakes.  I would know what is going to happen.  I don't regret anything that I've done in the past because I've learned (the hard way) from everything I've done, but I'd really like to stop doing that.  I'd really like to sail through the rest of life happily with minor speed bumps.  Here I go off on a tangent. . .back to dating.  I do enjoy it.  I like the attention and I like the feeling I get when I'm with certain people.  I like knowing that people are attracted to me.  I'm just not sure what I'm doing right now.  *sigh* "Passion. . .Confusion. . .Pain. . .Torture. . .and Love. . .and Hate"~Matt Soto (yes, from Nonagon)
