I have made a decision to stay single forever. I have been married twice and no luck there. I feel like my mood swings: depression, mania, irritability, agitation, happy for a moment then sad, and all that other stuff is just too much to ask anyone to handle. I can barely handle it myself when it's bad. I don't know how you guys found stable relationships but I feel like I just need to stay single. I don't even think I could tell someone I was dating that I have a mental illness. And, I'm not so sure two mentally ill people need to get together. Oh well, alone isn't so bad. I have three great kids and a grandson. Surely Im not really missing anything ????

" I'm decided years ago in my early 20's that I would probably be single forever unless Fate strings together a crazy string of coincidences to prove me wrong. I've gone on a date here and there but if there looks like there is any possibility of a relationship, I decide that I am too screwed up and she is much better off without me OR I get hit hard by one of my moods and decide that I want or deserve to be alone forever.

I haven't totally discounted the possibility but I have stopped looking and trying because I figure I'll just sabotage it anyway. "

" I was single for 13 years after my divorce. Enjoyed every minute of it. I helped me "grow up" and find out who I am. "
