Why Are You Still Single?
Freaky Friday: Every Friday a new post dealing with love, relationships, dating...and anything else the human soul may need answered.
I was out to dinner with a group of girl friends, all of whom are in some class of "taken".
As we were talking and catching up one friend busted out "how are you still single?" I wasn't taken aback by the abrupttness. I get asked this question all the time. I think to the point that people wonder and are curious-- what could be wrong with me? I've been proposed to more than ten times. It's a lot, I know. A crazy number. I've almost been married two glorious times.
My reasoning for being single has changed throughout the years. Usually because I knew that I needed to be single to be able to achieve what I wanted to achieve in my life. As I get older, this has changed; I can't be with someone for very long that I don't see a future with. I was spoiled by life with my first two loves, so they are hard to top. But now I also want a man that gets along well with my family and wants to spend time with them.
Not only that, but my life as a single woman is amazing! Not only am I able to do what I want when I want to, but I am able to do things that taken people are not able to. There are always two sides to every coin. But I am so comfortable with myself and so fulfilled as a single lady, I would need a man that feels the exact same way as myself for it to work.
When I think about this question that many single people like myself get asked, I begin to think about wonderful life as a single lady and I question..."why are you in a relationship?"
So tell me, what do YOU think about being single?
