Good to make your acquaintance.
I'm sorry you've had some sour relationship experiences lately. I think you are wise to focus just on being you. Someone will see you for who you are, and that's what they'll fall in love with. That's a recipe for a good relationship, and it's worth the wait.
If there's any way we can help let us know. Questions, thoughts, concerns -- all are welcome here.
My thoughts will go your way ... as will my best wishes for your new future and a brighter year to come.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
