Very nice Paisely. Such a healthy outlook and clear expectations of yourself and others. The part where you mention that you don't want some guy to come in and screw it all up. How many times have I said that? . . That I finally get to a point where I feel grounded and healthy only to dip my toe in to the dating pool and through it all out the window. Here's to you!

Good for you Paisley! You sound positive and it's good to hear of your level of comfort in your life. It was funny when I read "I don't want some guy to come in and screw it all up" comment. It's funny how we associate them with screwing things up. I feel the same at times. Sometimes I feel its easier to be alone because I know what to expect, that I stay consistent and level. But on the flip side nothing gets you knowing yourself as when you are with someone else. Speaking for myself, the issues lay dormant until I am vulnerable.
I love that you spoke of exposing yourself slowly and carefully to those who are worth it. You have created a protective shell around yourself like a turtle and only exposing yourself when you feel safe. Good Paisley. You are in a good place. Keep expanding on this and the right one will find you.

Paisley thank you so much for this thread and sharing. I honestly could have plugged my self into your post. Such eerie similarities, but since mine is a Seductive Withholder and narcissist, I suppose that is just how they are and it is time for me to see that.
Your progress is really motivating. I can feel your serenity. Thank you!
