    Guys, I need your help.

    If you had a choice to go to another country, would you go to Dubai & or Paris?

    If I go to Dubai, there would be a tour guide, transportation & meals provided. If I go to Paris, I can travel to surrounding countries by train but there would be no guide, transportation or meals provided.

    Which one would you choose?

    Just to be clear, I meant Paris, France and not Paris, TN, USA.

    So.. I have been single two months now and, although I don't miss my ex at all, I get these waves of loneliness sometimes. So, I guess I have to learn to enjoy my own company now. Or I could just spend all my time in the mfp forums :lol:

    You'll definitely go through a roller coaster of emotions...including missing what you thought you had with your ex. Not necessarily him. Take your time. :)

    You are right about that. We were together for just under ten years, so even though the relationship was a disaster, it is still odd being alone all the time.

    I would say Dubai, only because a friend of mine went there and said that everything is so over the top with people trying to outdo each other, that she stayed in a hotel with walls lined in actual gold. I want to see that. haha Plus having everything included is nice.... Also, it's different. I have already been to Europe, but I haven't been to any Arabian countries.

    But if I was 10 years younger, I would be all about Paris, only for the bonus of traveling to the other countries or to see the rest of France.

    But I'm old and tired. :D Give me the all inclusive plan in a place of luxury please.....

    I fully understand the waves you're talking about. I've been broken up with my ex for a while now and sometimes laying in bed at night I mess that cuddle or feeling someone is there. Eventually it will deminish. You'll be ok. Get a puppy 😋

    If you want to see Europe then go to Paris so you can visit the other countries.

    Personally I'd go to Dubai, that place looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.

    A puppy would be an absolute dream! Not possible unfortunately 😥 Thanks for your comment, I know I will be ok, just adjusting still!

    Thanks for all your feedback guys. I booked a flight to Paris before I even came back to check this thread. :D I found a REALLY good flight deal. There's another guided tour in Dubai, but it's in August. I'm sweating just thinking about it tho. Flights, meals & activities are included.

    I'm old & tired as well. I'm just becoming more adventurous as I get older. It's Paris for now, but Dubai is absolutely on my bucket list. It looks amazing in all the youtube videos I watch & pics I see.

    My advice is too spend lots of time with family and friends. And also spend some time with yourself and ON yourself.
    You are a great person and you should spend some time enjoying some things that you like to do. I like to go hiking or shopping, sometimes I do 5K’s or Obstacle races by myself. And you can always come and talk to us if you need to!! Big hugs to you my friend 🤗
    You are amazing and you will get through this ♥️

    The best feeling is the moment when you realize you're over someone. Just take some time to heal and reflect on what happened. If you are at least slightly extroverted, join meetup groups that fit your interests. I wish you a swift healing.

    Aww thank you guys 🤗 you are all so lovely and sweet and I'm glad to be able to connect with you all! The thing I've been struggling with is taking time just for me. It's so much easier to throw myself in to what my friends and family are doing but then I feel a bit lost when they're not there. I guess I just need to start doing stuff by myself and get used to the idea that I'm worth the effort I give to other people.

    Loneliness will come and go.... its hard to get used to the new "norm" of being alone. Make a list of all the things you want to do and start checking then off.
    Get together with friends more often.
    See whats going on in the community and go to different events.
    The alone time at home will get to you sometimes..... but at the same time, its freeing to know you can do what you want whwn you want and not have to answer to anyone. That was always my focus... haha
    The holidays don't make it any easier, though..... so try to fill your time with friends and family. <3

    Ooohhhhhh I so get that...... I wouldn't do anything without someone else with me. And if they didnt want to do it, then I didn't do it. It was fun and all, but not what I wanted to do.
    So finally I said screw it. I don't NEED someone with me to do what I want. I joined groups, took classes, and ended up with a whole new circle of friends. It was pretty awesome.
    I made a list of things I wanted to do and I made sure to do them. Whether it was once a week or once a month or once every few months.... depended on what it was.
    I always invited people to do things with me, but I always made sure I knew I was gonna do it regardless of who did. It was a constant (saying it over and over in my head) reminder to myself until it became my norm. 🤷‍♀️
    It takes time...... and you will eventually get comfortable doing things alone. No one holds you back but you. So let yourself go to enjoy the things you like. ❤❤

    That is such good advice. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences 🤗 Definitely going to do the list as you suggested. I was thinking about going to my family holiday home in lanzarote for some winter sun, but I've never been there on my own. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and book the flights?!

    I actually do some of that myself. I'll do stuff off sites like meetup, and invite friends to come. But I'm doing the event regardless. Cause I want to do it.
