How do I alone?
No, this isn't a "fill in the blank" question. Sillies.
I'm about to become a, uh, not-married person. This means I need to know how to be alone. That's weird & scary, my friends. Like....I'm all clammy just thinking about it.
I'm not really talking about the romantic stuff, necessarily. It's just that...for 6 years, somebody's always been there. A default +1. You don't have to worry about finding a date to a dinner party. You're not talking to yourself on long car trips. If you forget to pay a bill, someone else is around to write a post-it note. It's not always a good thing, but it's a constant.
I suppose I'm just wondering if anybody out there has dealt with a similar situation. What was your experience like? How did you readjust to become a functional, independent human-type?
