drama-free me

The other day I just stopped and noticed that, while I’m dating someone I genuinely like and with whom I enjoy spending time, I don’t long or pine or yearn to be with him when I’m not. It’s nice. I feel healthy and whole all by myself…well, I mean, with my full life as it is, which includes my children.

Of course there are moments when something happens that I wish we were able to share… so we text and talk about it later. There’s no urgency, no drama, no neediness. If a day or two goes by and we haven’t spoken, it’s okay.

And that’s nice.
