I am divorced cause I am me. I am normal until someone tells me that I am not . Now where does me go from here? i want attraction but gotta admit attraction is limited. Lotta nice people but they don't take care of themselves and expect well take a pill.

No, no keep going. Meltdowns are good entertainment. (Just kidding too)
I you want a serious answer, The onus for a good relationship always resides with yourself. Your singular job is to put your partner ahead of yourself in all that you do, and if they reciprocate all will be well. And if they don't, good luck with that, it will be short.

Somewhere, way back, I heard this saying, "Relationships are split 60-40. Each partner should put in 60% and only expect 40% in return." It has worked well for me, although I often have to remind myself of it.

I would be the last to give relationship advice but this has been my experience. Divorced after 9 years(33 years old), decided not to get involved with any women with kids as to not sacrifice my (3) kids space in my(our) house, they only live 4 miles away. Dated other women but never lived together. I will probably wait till the kids are more independant and possibly till my farming career is over. My motto: Single is easy but not alot of fun.

Must be done seeding.
In my experience, start with two well adjusted, balanced people for a starting chance.
As for my next one. The odds of finding the above criteria single at my age are against it.

In any relationship the key IMO is don't sweat the little things. There are days when you will drive each other nuts but always stop to consider the alternative. After 27 years of marriage I feel very fortunate that every year that passes my wife and I grow even closer but still allow each other our own independence and freedoms which keeps us both mentally healthy and happier. Every now and then tell them how you truly feel because it makes all the difference. My apologies if I sound like Dear Abbey but to me there truly is nothing more important than my wife and family and when that is firing on all cylinders, everything else just seems to fall in to place.

I've been married to the same man for coming 45
years in December. I think I've beguiled him with
my cooking. After only a few months of marriage,
I recall rolling up my sleeves, to hold fast a
prolapsed uterus inside a cow, a new venture for
me, indeed, while my husband went to the house
for a needle and thread. But I was game and
strong. and tried hard. He hasn't traded up, at
least not yet, but I suppose if he does, I'll get on
my broom, try online dating and bewitch some
poor unsuspecting delight. You might try that
notion if you are alone. Pars
