Internet Dating 101 – Profile Problems

So, on that sleepless night at 2:30 in the morning, I cautiously started filling-out the required questionnaire in order to build my Profile. 

Status.   Hummmm.  Believe it or not, that was a hard one.  With the exception of my early childhood, I had been with one person since I was 17.  I’d been married my whole life!  And now I was blankly staring at the multiple-choice question…Single? Married? Divorced? Widowed? 

I realize some refer to themselves as “single” post-divorce, but I didn’t feel that was being truthful.  Choosing “single” seemed as if I was ignoring the past 40 years of my life. 

Married?  Definitely not. 

Widowed?  Unfortunately not (that’s a JOKE people, lighten up!). 

Divorced? Divorced was the answer, but I still found it a bit difficult to place that little “x” next to the word Divorced. 

Divorce wasn’t easy for me.  Marriage was something I thought would be for a lifetime, no matter what.  Plus, by the time I was aware of anything unusual happening in my marriage, it was too late.  I had no choice in the matter.  One can only fight (or beg) to keep their family together for so long.
