Thanks as always for responding, Jeff! I hope I didn’t sound despondent — I was shooting for “contemplative,” I suppose.
I take long breaks when I feel closed off, but those have been rarely needed. Usually shorter breaks do the trick.
But there’s no way around it: it’s been a long time since I’ve been in anything resembling a relationship.
In any case, many thanks for remaining #teambonnie! And you know it pleases me immensely to know that you have found renewed happiness in a relationship!
