Partnerships Make Me Sad:

When one of my friends lists a partner in their profile, it always makes me a little sad. Now they have this special person in their life that takes up most of their time and they don't have as much time for me. I suppose that's why people cry at weddings. They weep because someone is being taken from their life.

Fortunately, partnerships don't usually last for long. Sometimes, if you forget to log in one day, you'll miss it entirely. Other times, it goes on for a few months.

    I agree somewhat with this, but also like to say that when people see you have a partner, they stop talking to you, assuming that every time you are online you are busy with your partner and won't talk to anyone else.
    Maybe I'm naive...

    1. That's true for me. I am unlikely to IM you as much if you have a partner. But isn't that the purpose of listing a partner? To discourage people from chatting with you? I suppose the purpose is to discourage only those with a romantic interest, but it discourages everyone. So ironically, listing a partner can make you feel more lonely than if you didn't.

      Well don't you stop chatting with me please, I do enjoy our conversations very much so.
      Yes, I never realized the "discourage" part of being partnered, but find that I still get the usual number of men asking me if I want to go see their new house. LoL! I think it rather amusing. But friends not 'bothering' you when you are partnered, I try to go ahead and just bother anyways :)) I figure if they are busy, they will tell me or not answer.

    3. Of course I'll keep bothering you. For you, a thousand times over. That last sentence is a quote from the Kite Runner, but you probably knew that already.
