Single and Loving it!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I do wildlife rehab, and though I have a lot of friends of the female persuasion, I am single.  And you know?  I really like it!  I've got a gimp crow named Vollund who's been with me quite a while now.  I'm starting up a flock of chickens this spring as a side project and I'm really enjoying life!  If Ms.Compatable comes along that'd be great, but you know, I'm not in a hurry! :gig

That would be me minus the crow 52 years ago, and then she came along.  :love  I, too, am fine alone, but am far better with her around.

Being happy with yourself is a good thing.

Be wary of people who need to be with someone.

Because they will always 'need'. That's not comfortable.

 

The right one will bring you a wounded something or other. 

When you make each other laugh, that's a good sign.

That sounds like a great place to be!

It's not always easy to be comfortable enough with yourself to be happy and single, but it can be a really good place to be. It definitely allows you to explore the world and different interests without anything holding you back! I don't have a gimp crow (though I'm pretty jealous!) but I do have a dog and she keeps me pretty sane most of the time. Anytime I feel lonely I give her a big hug or take her out for a hike! Animal therapy is the best kind there is!

What other animals have you rehabilitated? Do you work mostly with birds?
