Mrs. No

Sometimes, I answer with a “No” to a question. Such an answer is rare for me. I prefer avoiding questions rather than giving negative answers. Our reason for (not) answering with a “No” may well relate to the following quote: “It’s not rude to ask a question. It’s rude to expect an answer.” A quote by Louis Theroux (b.1970), “a British-American documentarian,...

It’s better to be alone than being lonely in a relationship

A relationship used to be a goal in my life. Like many other people, I prefer to be alone nowadays. I’m not sure when I’ve changed my mind. I suppose dating failures explain the how and the why.

Obstacles

Recently, I had a discussion about a geographical distance. She asked if distance is an obstacle. I replied that distance is not necessarily an obstacle.
