I am determined that I'm NOT gonna let it bother me this year.
As of New Years, I have decided that I am now no longer to be classified: "single and looking" but instead: "single and not looking" or perhaps instead: "single and totally apathetic about it."
I haven't yet determined if this is to be merely a temporary reprieve... or a permanent change in my outlook.
I also don't know if it is a passive or an active denial. ('Doing things as I have been doing, and if something interesting happens, maybe explore it, but just not seek it or try to force it...' vs: 'Avoid all situations that might possibly lead me to start thinking about it as a possibility again, and actually refuse any offers that might come my way...')
I've spent way too much time, thought, and effort dwelling on this matter over the last couple of years, only to end up in a worse place than where I started. I need a break.
We'll see how I feel about it in a couple of months as to whether I wish to continue down that path or not.
