I have been feeling blah. It's mixed emotions and I need a place to talk about it. I'm 30 and I need to talk about the last decade to help me move on through the next.

I met a guy after high school in 2003, married by 2007 divorced by 2011. Since then I have been "paddling my own canoe." When it comes to maintaining my home, expenses and lifestyle. I have both my parents whom I love and get along really well with.I have two sisters, sadly though we don't have a strong bond. At this point will we ever? One of the things that bugs me. I have been dating someone for over a year now and he has been dropping settle hints but there is a whole story behind that. I'm thinking I self inflicted that. There is where I will start.

I just need someone to talk to that is on the outside.

  1. In my opinion ,  30 is not old to remarry. However, before you remarry you need to consider some challenges you may face. 1) You may struggle to keep the earlier marriage from overshadowing your new. It is very unrealistic to just forget the first marriage. Some even accidently call their new mate the old mates name. How will you guys handle that? (1 Peter 3:8) 2) Interacting with old friends that are not familiar with your new mate.  Well meaning friends may bring up the first marriage. Will your new mate be able to handle this? Plan now and think of scenarios where  this may happen. 3) If your first mate was disloyal, you may have trust issues.. The key to a strong relationship is communication .(Proverbs 15:22)...Pray about it .....if you see any red flags please pay attention to those.  (jw.org)

Truth's been told.

JB and I knew each other then we started hanging out and then it became dating. Lately though there was a talk and I was told I would have to uproot to move to his town, no compromise. Why it's difficult is its a small town similar to what I grew up in and wanted to venture from. Then the WEIRD part is my ex lives in the same small town, so where do I Go? All of this has been put on the table.

When I starting dating again after my divorce my mantra was go out enjoy the time and at the end I have mine they have theirs. Lately, yes I have been thinking I would like another chance of a serious relationship. By serious I mean knowing someone well enough to move in and take on the world with. Marriage license or not. JB and I have been an item for over a year now.

Another issue I believe I'm feeling is 30. If we called it quits would I find someone else? I know that sounds like a same old story but it's there. I was strong enough to survive my divorce but it's crippled me and I need help.

As regards to your relationship,  its best to speak truthfully about your feelings (Ephesians 4:25)

Not sure, what you mean about "hints"....marriage or break up
