I was asked three times this week why I was not married. After getting over the uncomforting thoughts brought about by that question and being slightly angry, I decided that I need to embrace my single status and know that at 38, it is not the end of the world.
Last night, I got home late and was too tired to type a post, so today’s 5 things is also my happiness post because it good that I am not reveling in bringing myself down now.
It is good to be single and here’s why:
1. I can go anywhere, at anytime, with anyone, doing anything.
I answer to no one, except maybe Boots, the cat. I can go away on a whim or leave on a moments notice. A man is not holding me back.
2. I can flirt with the handsome guy at the coffee counter if I want to and go out with him if I so choose.
3. I can talk to my cat in my kitty cat voice and not have someone laugh at me.
After all, he is the true ruler. All hail the kitty.
4. I can meet the jerks who actually ask those type of “What is wrong with you that you are not married/engaged/whatever” and thank God, I am not with them.
5. I can enthrall everyone with my dating stories of men who get arrested on the date or have OCD or are attached to their cell phone during the date, etc.
Hard to talk about on going dating hell, when you are married.
Honestly, my mind can go on a rampage thinking of why I am not loveable or marriageable. I am thinking on the positive side of things. Being 38 and single is not bad and there is NOTHING WRONG WITH ME.
Anyone who says they aren’t quirky or that they don’t have baggage at my age is lying.
I also do not have the anxiety of buying a Christmas gift for him. That is the worst gift anxiety.
