" I agree that love is hard work but if you want a relationship then one must work for it. How many want to be married again.....been there, done that. Some people may just want a special friend, their best friend that will want to do things that their ex never wanted to do. Filling a void can be obtained with the right attitude and the right person. We just have to hope for the best.
I don't know how many people want to be married again. However, judging from the proliferation of sites like this, I think quite a few, or at least be coupled in some way. According to Kevin O'Leary ( of CBC's Dragon's Den fame) in his new book The Cold Hard Truth, the only people that should marry are those that intend to procreate. all others should steer clear. I don't know if I agree or disagree. It has been my experience that marriage isn't perfect, neither is cohabitation or singledom. They all have their ups and downs, pros and cons.
I do believe however that the "been there...done that"mind set sends out all the wrong signals. It seems to imply that no matter how great a new relationship is, that it is destined to play itself out as unsatisfactorily as the previous one. It tends to signal pessimism not optimism. As Seashells statepeople pick up on the smallest things even if only for a moment. I'm not saying that there isn't a time and a place for the cold hard truth but it still should ( if possible ) couched with optimism.
