A WOMAN in a self-partnered relationship has told herself that it is not working out.
Single-positive Nikki Hollis has been in a fulfilling relationship with herself for the past eight months, but has admitted the honeymoon period is over and the time seems right to move on.
Hollis said: “It was great to begin with. I tried all kinds of new things, in and out of the bedroom, and there were no disagreements about movies or eating out. It was like I could read my mind.
“But it began to get stale and predictable. I had so much in common with myself that nothing felt spontaneous anymore, and on date night I’d just watch other couples having fun.
“Admittedly I could’ve timed it better. My parents were so happy to meet the self-partnered me at Christmas, especially after the last few boyfriends. They treated me like one of their own.
“I just think it’s time to see other people. This isn’t the end. I’ll always be important to myself.”
She added: “Oh God, I can’t believe this is happening to me again. Why? Why?”
