Do you know you are loved? Apart from family, who pretty much have to love you... Otherwise...do you get that lovin' feeling?

Explained by Sukiesnow...

Do you know that you are loved apart from family... Family, pretty much are stuck loving you...but otherwise...do you get that feeling? Or is it totally dependant on family.... Good question, Sukiesnow. One I don't really want to answer...but here goes...

I feel loved by my family, yes, but I also feel loved by my friends. And I feel loved by God.

I've never been in a relationship so that kind of love I haven't experienced yet.

Well, yes...this is apart from FAMILY... You don't sound convinced?

There has got to be love for anyone apart from family... Of course there is...but comments seem to be uncertain.

I feel loved by family, friends, God, and I doubt a stranger would love me. lol Maybe that stranger standing on the street corner a few minutes ago that I gave a $5 to....maybe she loved me for a few minutes...lol

Apart from my sister that I only get to see every couple of months, there's just acquaintances that I say hello to in passing. Some I'd like to be closer to, even friends with but love is reserved for their own families, kids and partners.

Wow Oz...love needn't be reserved. It is not as if we only have a limited amount to give. Do people keep you at arms length, or do you keep them from getting close?

No I'd love to have closer friends but even the guys I grew up with, Thi fa have changed since they got their own families. We used to always do things together, but now they are always busy with their families and say, we must get you around some time, but it doesn't happen. I can't blame them, families hang out with other families and they all talk about their homes, kids, schools etc. Then couples look for other couples. People are great, there are so many I meet that I'd like to be regular friends with but they don't let it get that far. The rare time I meet anyone single, as soon as they meet someone i never hear from them again, and if they're female their partner isn't happy with them having a male friend. I'd love to change the rules but I guess I have to work with what I've got.

I do understand what you are saying. Most of my friends have always been guys and that has always been a problem with their partners, and I know couples tend not to hang much with single friends. I don't feel my friends don't love me though, even when we go years without contact because of those things. Some friendships do just fade away, but I have had some people I thought that had happened with look me up again when their circumstances have changed.

Thanks and I appreciate the understanding. I think you're right, my past friends still feel the same about our friendship.

And I've had that too, with on and off again friendships based on their relationship status. I have a great friend that I met on SH and we go to the beach and dinners and adventure holidays and can talk for hours etc when she's single, but when she's in a relationship, the guy gets jealous and controlling and we are back to texting occasionally.

People say how great being single is, but the one down side is that you are never going to be the one that your friends leave others for to rush home to.

Being widowed in my 40s threw me back into the single life at a time I fully expected to have someone to rush home to for many years to come, so I really do understand.

I'm sorry to hear you went through that, I lost my partner to breast cancer and it took me completely by surprise. Just knowing someone else understands helps a lot.
