The Disastrously High Cost of Intimacy 

Why do I live alone? It’s the peace of mind of not having someone tell me what to do ALL the time. I have been effectively on my own, paying my own way for 40 plus years and I feel like I am fairly self sufficient.

It’s been 3 years now of living by myself, except on the weekends when my daughter is there…  1 year before that I lived with David and that was good because he is reasonable and not 1 disagreement in that year. 

My daughter and I cohabitate very well and I could live with her. Those weekends with her are the best of times…

I can’t forsee a situation where I would ever live with anyone who I would be in a relationship with because I have never experienced success there. 

I don’t understand why anyone would feel the need to boss another person around in a way that can’t be described as anything other than rude just because they have a relationship of intimacy.

Is that the cost of intimacy?
