I only got one question, though I guess technically you could say I had two, since two people asked the same question. To answer your question, if I am soured on men for life, or if I would ever enter another relationship the answer would have to be yes and no.

Let me explain. There have been far more great men in my life than sucky ones. My father, my brother, my uncles, friends I have known have treated me wonderfully and set a great example of how a man should be: kind, hard working, respectful, open-minded, secure, etc.. So I know that not all men are like my ex. However they don't seem to be the men I am attracted to for some reason. Most of the guys I have had a relationship (and sadly there haven't been many), with or been attracted to (counting only people in real life), have been shall we say less than desirable as mate material. So while I am not soured on men, I'm less than confindant with my ability to find an attract one.

I am also not one of those women who feels she has to have a man in her life to be whole or complete. Right now my son is the center of my life. However, that doesnt' mean I am ruling out ever dating or being in a relationship again. I've more or less developed the attitude that whatever happens happens. If I happen to meet somebody who treats me with respect, loves me for who I am, who I have shared chemistry and intersests with I would definately consider it, however I am not going to die miserable and unhappy because I didn't catch Mr. Wonderful. I've never really understood why some women seem to always be on a manhunt. In my opinion one needs to be happy with themselves from within, or no relationship will ever be satisfying.

I have absolutely no desire to have any more kids, for a multitude of reasons, and any man who did want to have a relationship with me, would have to be understanding, loving and accepting of my son, and have the patience to form a relationship with him as well, he would have to understand that I was a mother before we met and will always be a mom.

I'm also quite used to being on my own, and making decisions with out consulting somebody else (something I've had trouble with and would be a major issue), I tend to be very independant and territorial, while at the same time, I find it all to easy to sit back and let somebody else do the dirty work. I have a feeling that in a serious relationship this would have to be a major issue I'd have to work on.

The other day I was once again faced with a major decision. I was dreading it, but I knew the day was comming and I couldn't put it off anymore, less I face major consequences. I finally bit my tongue, took a deep breathe and set out to the Health and Beauty department at Walmart to find a new shampoo. My old one just wasnt' working anymore, and I was sick of oily roots and dry ends. I hate picking out shampoo's there are so many choices, smells, and options. Something as simple as basic hygeine should not be so damn complicated. Shampoos for oily hair make my ends even drier, dry shampoos make my roots extra oily, I dont' want to spend a small fortune I just want clean fresh smelling soft hair. Ten hours later I finally reached a decision. So far Pro-V smoothing shampoo followed by Aussie spray on leave in conditioner seems to live up to it's promises.

I'm thinking of putting a weightloss counter on my web page, but that means I have to buy a scale. I havent' cut soda out completely but I have cut way down. I've been eating a lot more healthy and I've cut out most sugars. I'm pretty sure I've lost weight, as I couldn't keep my pants up today. I've also noticed I seem to have more energy during the day now that I've starting eating more real food, and less funky colored, deep fried, salt coated, nutrition free calories. Let's hope I can keep it up. Veggies are our friends!

Time to post this before the phone rings again. Another sure sign you have a teenager, the phone is always ringing and it is never for you. Girls are calling, I'm not ready yet. (technically its only one girl and she is just a friend, but she has some issues, I can't get into right at the moment as I promised Warren I wouldn't.). I don't even answer it anymore if Warren is home.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
