Back on the bus after a 4 months break.

I'm doing my best to hop back on, well over 4 months now, let me know when a seat comes free, this time I want to stay here for good. It's not all it's cracked up to be out there. Too much emotional crap and vulnerability....!

21 months for me and though I have zero desire to start dating, I would really love a FWB about now. Had a really young guy flirting with me a few weeks back & I was almost tempted to find out what this cougar thing is all about! Alas, common sense took over & I think I will be on the bus for quite some time.

Hello fellow bus riders!
Im just happy sitting here in my seat. Im busy writing my "Single bucket list" of things I want to accomplish before I start dating. Anyone else with me?

Lets get this party started

Well, I went to Destin by myself this year, something the ex and I did together. I was going to go to our places, and have cathartic tears, and take it, I was looking at the outside bench where I sat crying for an hour cause I could tell he wasn't "there" with me, and he never came to check on me (was texting his whore). Waiting, tears. Favorite restaurant? No tears. Then, I had the best vacation of my life. I got up when I wanted, had junk food for breakfast (i eat healthy at home), spent all day at the beach, came back to the room and napped, then went antiques and second hand store shopping, or to a bookstore, and got fresh shrimp from the seafood place... basically did what the hell I wanted. Best.vacay.ever. I met up with friends after four days down there alone, and wish that I hadn't, just stayed by myself cause I had so much fun. Now, single bucket list is Hawaii by myself! My daughter went last year, and my friend last month, and I want to go. I love vacationing by myself! It sucks that I am 50+ and just now getting the opportunity to find that out.

I've been a bus rider for 2.5 years now and have no desire to leave. Really. not. interested.

I'd love to go to Hawaii!!! XH and I lived in Puerto Rico for a year and a half back in '88 when our son was a baby (turns out that's when the ONSs that I now know about started...). But my point is that I always thought going to Hawaii would be so cool, but XH refused because I hadn't enjoyed living in Puerto Rico... Apparently if they're tropical islands, they're all the same.

I wish I had more friends to pass my time with, but I'm very happily rooted to this bus-riding life.

Wait wait wait... what is this bus everyone's talking about? The foreveralone bus? The bus of singledom?

Ok, I'm on the bus. :( For about a year minus one brief rest stop.

Eight months here. Finally realizing the bus is ok and that its not such a bad place to be. Its not that I don't want a relationship, I do, but it has to be right. For once in my life I am putting myself first, and I have a very specific list of attributes I am looking for and until that happens I may as well get comfy. Looks like it might be a long ride. And I am ok with that!!

Well I am going to be very truthful. I HATE THE FUCKING (no make that the NON FUCKING) Bus.

Oh well I am here and will be staying. I am picky and not willing to settle for anything less than I deserve. I am going to wait until I meet HIM and until then I will just sit in the back and pout.

newnormal posted 11/12/2013 06:12 AM

(spits coffee) worried lady, I think you just answered broken dudes question.

I think this is the point in rotation in this thread were we talk about bob.

FaithFool posted 11/12/2013 08:11 AM

@welcome14: Vacationing alone is my FAVOURITE THING EVER!

Well into Year 5 here and quite happy thank you very much.

Who's driving the bus? We need a destination. Let's get this party started!

Bebba1171 posted 11/12/2013 09:40 AM

I hopped on a few weeks ago..

Proud to be in such good company!

welcome14 posted 11/12/2013 13:40 PM

@FaithFool- I'm kicking myself that I didn't try it before, and I bought into that "you must be part of a couple to have fun" bullshit.

As for everyone else-

I'm off at the yellow flag stop. I'll let you all know if I hop back on... Enjoy the ride, it is a lot less complicated!

Back on. For a long time if you ask me. Had a few stops there in between but boy, for now I like my seat. Leaning back, with my book and earplugs, a few snacks and I am ready to go around the block for the next 12 months at least.

whatdoto posted 1/9/2014 21:32 PM


First time on this bus. Been 12 months and think I'll stay for a while. Hi ya'll!

better4me posted 1/9/2014 21:53 PM

Although it hasn't been the full 6 months (I think it is 3 months and 20 days, but who's counting? ) since my last brief stop can I hitch a ride? Or do I gotta wait the full 6 months??

Have we picked a destination yet? Who is the driver and more importantly--who's pouring the drinks?
