Purps, I totally agree with what your saying about enjoying being a homebody. I wonder how much of our thinking is from being JWs. I totally enjoy all the home thingys, laundry, ironing, cooking, cleaning ect.....flower garden. And its rare to find ones as ourself just because the way society is nowdays.
I was so 'lucky' to be a stay at home mom as a JW, raised 3 kids and life was fulfilling to me. Then with divorce, and all the nightmares to follow to combine being a single mom and working was an adjustment. I would rather live simple with a husband/mate/partener at home instead of working tons of overtime to have more material things.
Then to date 'in the world' is almost as difficult as a 'sister seeking a brother'.
I ask the same question, where are those men who would enjoy and look forward to coming home to a real home cooked meal, met with hugs and kisses, to have not a rushed evening but to relax in his castle he provides while his queen/princess takes care of him and the possessions. Maybe I live in the fairytale of life because the reality of such desires aludes me.
I would rather me do the house thing, he do the outside man thing, get it all done and head out for a day on the lake fishing.
I am a school bus driver, and keep my bills paid, and if a relationship did ever appear, I would enjoy doing the driving job, just less hours. Funny, my lonliness comes alot of times in having no one to cook for.....or to fuss over at times. Or when I get the urges to head out to the lake, the boat is sitting there, and no one to go with.
I know many speak of getting on with life.........but its hard when all you have known is the 'truth' as a way of life and you still struggle with how life was verses how life is now.
I appreciate these xjw boards, at least we can associate among those who do understand, even if only by computer.
Some have found 'life' within another religion, funny, I have no interest in any religion at all. Just to live a quiet life, enjoy nature, and see how the adventure unfolds. I am 47 and life is on the downside from here on out.
I apologize for my rambling thoughts, but at times you just want someone to hold hands with. Someone to kiss and make love with....and its always harder at nighttime.
