Sex & the Single Woman: Rethinking It

Over the past year, I have dealt with a lot of sadness. There has been stress and death and a lot of things that made me a stronger person. I handled the majority of these things solo–no man by my side. But I have often wondered, would it have been easier with a designated shoulder to cry on?

Throughout these circumstances, I rethought a lot of my relationships that either ended or had false starts. I considered trying to reignite flames, and even pursued some of them.

What is it about sad situations that make us want to rethink our relationships? Is it the need for comfort or just a realization that life is too short? Women in mourning are fragile creatures so it is easy to understand why we would want to reconnect with old flames. But is that really just adding more heartache?
