I had a marriage that didn't work. Since then, several relationships, but I wanted no marriage again, and they did.
The last relationship I had was not good. In the end, when I tried to end it, my friend literally kicked in my door and stalked me, tried to trap me in his apartment, all so I wouldn't leave him.
Since then, I want good friends more than one person, though I'd like that if the right one came along. I am not sure I am up for going through all the work having a marriage or close relationship takes, though. I am usually pretty happy by myself. I do go out with friends and participate in the community.
The only thing I worry about, with no family at all, is getting older without someone to care.
