My last relationships ended when I started being with horses - my partner disrespected my strong feelings about this lifestyle and wanted me to quit "just because", which I really took to heart and it was a strong push towards a decision that was already coming. I haven't been in a relationship since that - partially because I spend so much time with the horses and with my horsey friends, that I don't really get to see people outside my circles and I don't really know anyone I'd like to date. Except for one wonderful guy, but he's already taken. :) But I'm not bothered by that. I've always been a loner anyway, and I have very strict standards about whom I'd choose to date.
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
