To my readers: time to Ask Me Anything
Jessica Semaan

Hello, I LOVE reading your writings! They hit me hard in the heart, because I’m almost as brave as you are. I’m a single mom of 2 boys; their father left us several years ago for another woman. Though he does have visitation, he does not truly support or help raise them. It took me about 3 years to have my head in a place where I could even consider the idea of marriage again. Yet I still kept my guard up. I’ve grown and learned to love myself. I’ve realized I don’t NEED anyone else to make me happy. The problem is, I YEARN for a partner to share my life with, to grow with, to have an adult’s only vacation with. The people I attract always want nothing more than a roll in the hay, or end up being crazy. (I can elaborate, but I’m trying to keep this short.)

My question is: How did you overcome the times of crying endlessly, wishing you had someone at your side? Even though I’ve achieved a sense of happiness, and love for myself, I can’t shake this yearning for a partner. I can’t help but shed endless tears about this from time to time. What do you suggest?

Thank you!
