Is anyone else dealing with this? Now that I'm going through the divorce I suddenly feel insecure about myself, I feel like I have to look my best everytime I leave the house, like I'm for sale or something. I'm not looking for anyone, I'm not looking to move on or anything like that, but I'm paranoid that as a single, 26 year old career mom living in a college town, I'll never attract anyone again. Like if my own husband wasn't interested enough in me to stick around, the one person I trusted to love me unconditionally, why would someone else be attracted? I know it sounds just pitiful, and if a friend said this to me I would tell her it's ridiculous, but I can't seem to shake the uneasiness. We were together at 16 and 17, I've never known anyone else! He has already moved on and has a very active social life, I feel like he's one-upping me and showing me he's better. How to shake this???

I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
